Check out part 1 of this interview if you haven't already seen it!


In part 2 of the interview with George Kalajian, we talk about making the perfect pleated skirt! George Kalajian is the owner of Tom's Son's International Pleating, a five generation family owned pleating business in the New York fashion district. George has created garments for big names like Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Coach, the Metropolitan Museum, (and many more) as well as shows and movies like "Downton Abbey", "The Gilded Age", Stephen King's "It", and "The Gods of Egypt".



I love vintage skirts, especially pleated ones, and in this video we will tackle topics like:


  • What fabric is best to use for this kind of skirt?

  • What's the difference between knife pleats or accordion pleats?

  • How should this skirt be shaped in order to get that classic flared A line shape

  • How to incorporate a shaped waistband?


If you have ever been interested in working with a professional pleater, this is an insider look into what that planning process looks like!
