Sophy Curson

Discerning Shoppers’ Favorite Philadelphia Boutique for Almost 90 Years!

Discerning women of style expect something special when on the hunt for fashion designer collections.  Philadelphia is a town of fashion-forward women, and when they’re searching for premier designer collections in cocktail and evening wear, jewelry and other accessories, they turn to Sophy Curson. They are drawn by our sensitive approach to customer service and our memorable shopping experiences. Approaching and helping a customer is not just a skill, but an artistry. To assist her in finding exactly what she wants, that is a science mixed a little bit of magic

Within that artistry is the ability to offer service that is helpful without being intrusive. Finding the right outfit for that perfect occasion is a very personal experience, and we at Sophy Curson have a mission to guide customers, not pitch them.  Our sales associates engage with our customers, presenting suggestions from our fashion designer collections to aid in finding merchandise that both reflects current women’s fashion trends as well as reaching beyond to arrive at personal expressions of individual style.  When shopping for women’s designer collections, Sophy Curson’s customers can expect excellence; we aim to exceed the highest of expectations.

For almost 90 years, Sophy Curson has dedicated personal service and attention to detail as our promise to you.  In addition to exquisitely furnished, private dressing rooms, we offer:

Parking and Public Transit

Sophy Curson is located at 122 South 19th Street, Philadelphia PA 19103, at the corner of Sansom and 19th Streets, in Rittenhouse Square.  We are accessible by public transportation or by car.  Buses service streets throughout the area and we are just a short walk from Suburban Station, accessible via Septa’s Subway Lines and Regional Rail. For those who prefer to drive, metered street parking is available, and the store is a short walk from a few parking garages.

On-premises expert alterations

Even the finest garment likely requires some alteration to achieve the perfect, custom fit.  Sophy Curson’s expert tailoring professionals ensure a precise and stylish fit, every time.  Our in-house alterations team provides convenient and efficient fittings, whether it’s for your wedding gown, a new cocktail dress or a pants suit for the office. Our work is transformative, providing the finishing touch that makes an ensemble truly yours.

Designer special orders

As a fine women’s fashion boutique, we do the utmost for our customers. We feature ready-to-wear in sizes 2 – 18, but if we do not have what you need in stock, you can rely on us to do everything in our power to get it.  Our international network of resources and our close, personal relationships with designers ensures that your special order requests are given top priority.  In addition, several of our trunk shows include made-to-measure options, wherein styles can be customized to your taste and produced in any size.

About the Author:

Sophy Curson, the chic women’s boutique that opened in 1929 on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, has withstood the test of time; the Great Depression, World War II, fourteen presidents and an ever-evolving fashion industry. What’s their secret? Their relationship with their customers. David Schwartz and his mother Susan (Sophy’s niece and great nephew), run the business today. The Schwartzes say their clients’ loyalty is tied to the personal shopping experience everyone receives at their boutique. “Our customers shop in our store because we offer something that doesn’t exist anymore.” said David. “We provide extraordinary service and exclusivity. You can’t find that anywhere else.”
