The Fitting Room



  • Best of Big D: Best Tailor (2014)


Prior to setting up her own shop 18 years ago, Bea Harper ran the custom department at Ralph Lauren in Highland Park Village. The Fitting Room is a full-service design and alterations shop, so whether a client wants a luxury bespoke suit or has a special need due to size or disability, Harper can accommodate. With many designer fabrics, such as Valentino, available in-store, she’ll often re-create a client’s favorite garment that perhaps is stained or no longer wearable, or modify a mother’s wedding gown so a daughter can wear the family legacy. One client wore a custom sports jacket by Harper to a party where he sat next to actor Stanley Tucci, who asked, “What part of Italy was that made in?” When told the garment was created in Dallas, Tucci replied, “No one in the States knows how to make a jacket that well.”
