Bridal, September 2007
BEFORE, DURING & AFTER the most important day of a women’s life, The Madame Paulette Organization has made an unwavering commitment to be there for the bride.
For over half a century, the Mahdessian family has worked tirelessly to perfect custom cleaning, restoration and preservation processes which have allowed Madame Paulette to maintain continuous recognition as the leader in an ever-growing industry. The President, John Mahdessian, is considered a pioneer whose patented techniques have earned him a coveted place in the history of wedding gown care.
With such a wealth of knowledge available to brides today, the decision with whom to work with is a much more educated process. Brides “in the know” – including those who have every possible resource in the world available to them – select the premium services of The Madame Paulette Organization. This is why Melania Trump, whose $200,000 breathtaking John Galliano creation - showcased by 500 intricate pleats and 300 feet of silk satin - entrusted Madame Paulette with her irreplaceable couture gown before her wedding, on the day of her wedding and after her wedding.
This is why esteemed bridal designers such as Vera Wang, Reem Acra and Carolina Herrera turn to Madame Paulette to enhance their own creations as well as to rest assured that their valued clientele are in the best possible hands. Madame Paulette has achieved level of perfection and attention to detail that is un-duplicated by competitive resources.
