Dick Robaisson is the owner of Le Couturier House of Alterations, 550 Mass. Avenue, 2nd Floor in Cambridge, MA. He began his entrepreneurship as a tailor working in his home town of Petionville, a suburb of Port au Prince, Haiti at the age of 13 under the tutelage of his father. He moved to the U.S. in 1989 where he worked at Frank the Tailor, Pacifici in Boston, Bloomingdales and Ermenegildo Zegna on Newbury St. before opening up his own shop there in 2003. He moved to Central Square in November of 2008. We are privileged to have Dick next door to us because he specializes in custom alterations, wedding gowns and quality tailoring. His staff of 4 to 5 part time employees serves the Harvard and MIT communities as well as clients from Connecticut and New Hampshire. His great work, excellent sense of clothing, competitive pricing and superb fitting and experience has earned him great reviews on Yelp as well as well-deserved recognition in Boston Magazine, The Improper Bostonian and Best of Boston.
