The brand's collections are comprised of embellished gowns, cocktail dresses, furs and modern chic day to evening separates that can easily transition into special occasion, business and dress causal attire. All garments are produced domestically in New York City. Small-run beading is executed by an in-house team of beaders and production beading is completed by two family-owned embroidery houses in Kolkata and Mumbai, India. VISÇERA NY is currently sold via showroom appointment, trunk shows and the brand's online boutique. In 2013 the brand's designer, Sherita Cuffee created the VISÇERA NY Sewing Academy, a socio-educational program with the mission to keep the craft of sewing alive while enpowering women and girls to understand the impact of their talents in their respective communities. By teaching sewing as a skill, a trade and a hobby, Cuffee incites her students to use sewing as a means to become financially sufficient. The VISÇERA NY Sewing Academy also offers workshops, summer camps and private sewing lessons for profit to support similar workshops in low-income communities and non-profit organizations.
