Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month and there are quite a few amazing female designers who have influenced the bridal industry in enormous ways. We're proud to offer their designs to our brides, knowing they are becoming a part of fashion and women's history as well!

Monique Lhuillier is one of the most cutting edge and fashion-forward bridal designers in the world. Her designs grace the red carpet on a regular basis on stars such as Halle Berry, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Cameron Diaz, andGwyneth Paltrow. In the bridal industry, she is know for her innovation and for always being ahead of the trends.

Originally from the Phillipines, Monique launched her bridal line in 1996 and has been getting rave reviews ever since. Her line began in response to her search for her own bridal gown in 1995. After discovering a lack of fashion-forward bridal designs in the industry, she decided to try her hand at it. Given her extensive fashion background, it's no surprise she's been so successful.
Another cutting egde female designer we're proud to carry is Jenny Packham. Another designer frequently found on the red carpet, her bridal designs are the only of their kind in the industry right now. Slim silhouettes accompanied by intricate beadwork are her signature whether on the red carpet or in the bridal industry. Perhaps her most notable client is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who wears her gowns on a regular basis for all sorts of events.

Her designs have also been worn by Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez and of course by many brides around the world. She recently celebrated 25 years in the fashion industry and we hope she'll be creating more amazing gowns for another 25 years to come!
Of course, our designers aren't all focused entirely on gowns. There are a number of amazing accessories designers impacting fashion and women's history with their innovative collections. Maria Elena is perhaps the most notable jewelry and bridal accessories designer we carry and the history of her company is as beautiful as her designs. The company came into being when Maria's daughter was searching for a headpiece for her own wedding day look. Maria Elena designed her daughter's headpiece with the intent for it to become an heirloom. The rest is history- she soon had launched her business creating beautiful heirloom quality headpieces and jewelry for brides around the world, most recently Kelly Clarkson!

Finally, another of our designers who is making bridal fashion history is Toni Federici. Her veils are unparalleled in the industry and feature only the finest materials- tulle, lace and beading. Her designs are featured on some of the high-end bridal gown designer's runway shows including Monique Lhuillier and Watters.

These four amazing designers are far from all-inclusive when it comes to notable female designers in our shop. We know that they were influenced by female designers from the past and their work will also stand the test of time and influence many designers yet to come.
