Buying the right clothing can be a frustrating, even intimidating experience. Not only is it hard to pick a versatile item that fits well, but sometimes it’s even hard find a salesperson you trust.

Not so at La Lumia, a second-floor shop where owner Jackie Sencion sells an eclectic mix of clothing and jewelry from independent New York City designers along with some selections made—and designed by Sencion—right in the shop.

There are two tailors on-site for quick adjustments, and Sencion’s handbag line is available too.

“My store is about giving people that perfect fit they can’t find off the rack,” Sencion said.

She also offers fashion consultancy sessions by appointment both in the store and at the homes of her clients—even for those who don’t shop in the store.

“At La Lumia,” Sencion said, “It’s a personal experience.”
