**Alfred Fiandaca was a dress maker for the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Julie Andrews, Joan Kennedy, Nancy Reagan, and Ann Romney, among other prominent figures and socialites.
The son of an Italian tailor and cabaret costume seamstress, a passion for garments was ingrained in his DNA. When he was just boy, he was already sewing fabrics and cutting patterns. Fiandaca studied design at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. By 1960, Fiandaca founded his women’s fashion line.
Although his couture houses were in Palm Beach and New York at the time of his death, Fiandaca always maintained a Boston connection. For over 40 years, he kept a studio on Newbury Street. In 2009, it moved to Albany Street but at least one politician’s wife managed to always find it. -The Boston Globe 2013
