Dinora has always been innovative, creative and practical with all her work. She tries to bring out the best in every woman, with a simple old Spanish saying, “la moda, a la que se le acomoda”. After raising children and having the financial means of being able to open her own version of the dream, Silk not only became a thought in the back of her mind but a plan in action.

Silk brings to valley women a service not often seen, alterations on ‘in-house’ garments but also welcomes pieces from outside into the store. It’s not your common alterations place; Silk offers customized modifications to personalize your dress completely. Women should no longer be afraid of buying a dress elsewhere and running the risk of arriving at the event so see someone else with the same dress. Silk offers exceptional dresses not seen in any other valley dress shop. Dinora has made sure of personally shopping for dresses and lines that customers will appreciate and she offers the exclusive service of only 3 dress of the same style; regardless! This service is only at Silk simply to take care of the customers. Ladies, when you shop at Silk you can be sure that there will be a dress solely for you in mind.

Whether it’s adding fabric or subtracting, custom hand beading, a remake of a dress or a simple hem, Silk has arrived to take care of any need. Dinora will personally greet you and offer her knowledge in alterations and customization services. She has over 20 years of experience in bridal, quince, all dresses and even male alterations!

Silk Fashions & Alterations opened its doors for the first time on April 15, 2011; offering distinct lines of evening dress, custom alterations and all accessories, including shoes, cover-ups and more.

Planning for Silk began over two decades ago with the simple thought of a dressmaker who worked from home and her desire to take her talent public in order for all women to benefit from and admire. As a mother of 3, Dinora Alvarado always tied to seek fashion forward ideas and concepts for her daughters. Eventually her work was showcased by her 2 daughters and gained attention from not only family and friends but also locals. She designated an area in her home to serve as a work station and began making dresses for customers in the Mexico and McAllen surrounding area; doctors, judges and socialites.
