Elim Garak

Garak's Clothiers was a tailors' shop operated by Elim Garak on the Promenade of Deep Space Nine.

The Tailors had been run by a Bajoran prior to his execution. Skrain Dukat assigned Garak the role of Terok Nor's tailor upon his exile to the station. Garak was at first resistant and spent a great deal of time ‘preparing’ the shop until Dukat threatened to have him working alongside the Bajoran slaves in the mining operations. Garak arranged for Quark to supply him with the necessary equipment and decided to take his punishment as a challenge, determined to become a vital element of Terok Nor. The business developed quickly and Garak was soon charging high prices for his repair work and began to work on his own clothing designs for sale. His first customer was Quark who he designed a suit for in return for referrals (which Quark got a ten percent commission for). Garak was left on the station when the Cardassians withdrew and continued in his role of a tailor on the rechristened Federation station Deep Space Nine until he departed for Cardassia towards the end of the Dominion War in 2375. (DS9 novel: A Stitch in Time)

The shop remained unoccupied until it was used for an exhibit of art by Tora Ziyal. Garak briefly returned to the station to visit the exhibition in September of 2376. (DS9 novel: Unity)
