Who: “One of my biggest core values is customer service,” says Lauren Remesi. “I think it’s a rare quality ... these days.” The owner and creator of Cut From The Same Cloth in Concord, she says her extensive work background is what gives her business a solid foundation: She says she spent years working in and managing salons and stores, then worked in couture bridal. “I loved every second of it.” Learning to manage a staff also paid off in her own business, which she started in 2011.
How: For custom, “I will take (the customer’s) concept and begin to bring it to life with a sketch and swatch options.” She also offers small collections to stores, tailored to their concept.
Favorite piece: “Currently I’m really into the Fringe Blanket Coat. It’s a big statement piece ... (and has a) bohemian/rock ’n’ roll vibe.”
