From the age of 6 I have been winding bobbins and designing in my dreams. I received my Fashion Merchandising and Interior Design Degree from George Fox University in Oregon. I was pushed into the Bridal business in 2005 when I landed my first job after college at Santa Barbara Bridal. I worked on the sales floor and running my own successful Bridal Alteration business. I first began designing veils because the lead-time is so outrageously long and the veils are so poorly marketed that I was intrigued by the challenge of offering something more accessible to the procrastinating bride.
I stumbled upon my first veil creation when I was working for a wedding dress shop in Santa Barbara California. I made some mock veils for the mannequins as displays when… low and behold my veils kept selling.
The first couture dress I ever cut into was Diandra Douglas’ (Yes, Michael Douglas’ Ex Wife) Elizabeth Fillmore gown...
