There is a boutique in New York City called Maya right by the United Nations building. The woman who owns it is European and she copies Chanel fashions and improves on them.
Her clientele is mostly European and she has the most exquisite collection that I have ever seen! She has alot of devout clients from Palm Beach, Upper East Side of Manhattan and Paris. If you ask her to custom make a suit, she will do it.
There are many suits and dresses that are already made and those are less expensive. There is also a sale rack in the store. The reason for her UN location is because her line of clothing is very Jackie O. A fashionable princess like the late Grace Kelly would wear her designs. Carla Bruni is the type of woman, however, Carla is rich enough to buy the originals. I actually prefer Maya designs to Karl Lagerfeld’s interpretations of Chanel.
