Meet Nicholas J. Harper
At a young age, he had always had an interest in tailored clothing. Being a young man raised in the church, he was encouraged by one of the deacons to start dressing up, or at least wear a dress shirt and tie. He began designing in the 7th grade but never thought that would become his professional career. After graduating high school, he studied Music Education at the University of Toledo. Though music is a passion, he never stopped designing. After 4 years in music, he decided to follow a different path. His road to entrepreneurship began shortly after studying Fashion Design at Kent State University under some of the works leading designers in the fashion industry and joining the Army. He is also the apprentice of Master Tailor Ervin Arnold of Arnold's Menswear and Womenswear.
In 2014 and he began servicing a very close group of friends using his home as a studio under the name Eden Tailoring and rebranded in 2019 as Eden Couture. His vision was to create a clothing business that, rather than focusing on the tailored garment alone, was deeply driven by the lifestyle of the client and the buying experience.
This unique approach, combined with the quality and unparalleled fit of Eden Couture garments, proved to fulfill an unmet need in the marketplace.
