The Charles Josef Design Studio
Charles Josef is a full-service atelier offering a ready to wear bridal and evening collection, alterations, and custom design services for the entire bridal party. Years of experience allow us to design a garment that will flatter you in style, cut and fabric or if you prefer we can alter a garment to fit your individual measurements whether you purchased it from us or found it elsewhere. We specialize in one of a kind dresses for the bride and mothers with a full collection of samples that can be made to order in a variety of textiles. For men, we offer shirts, ties, and vests for all occasions and tastes.
All of our services are offered by appointment and all of our garments are produced in Asheville, NC.
