“I’m proud to continue our family tradition of serving every sector of the Washington DC’s diverse and rapidly growing community. Making our clients happy pays dividends when they provide referrals to their family, friends and neighbors who also expect us to give the very best care and special attention to their treasured and classic garments.”

As a third generation small business owner, Cheryl A. Lofton, President and CEO of Cheryl A. Lofton & Associates — 3rd Generation Tailoring, launched Divine Shine with partner Stanley Mayes, Store Manager, to serve the abundant demand for reliable, quality shoe and accessory restoration services. Having served the custom tailoring, custom shirts, and bride and groom wedding party garment needs for several decades, it was not only logical but increasingly apparent that her clients with custom tailoring needs also required dependable shoe and accessory services.

Hence, Divine Shine was born. Since then, the word has continued to spread, and business is booming. Our clients and referrals, in the Shaw community and across the District, speak volumes about the quality of our services.
