Let me introduce myself. I’m Dani Simone custom Wedding Dress Designer, Bridal Trend Expert and Fashion Illustrator behind By Dani Simone Shop and I’ll be your personal made to order, custom and customizable wedding dress designer. I’ve been dreaming of a Bride like you since I was a little girl and I’m so excited to help make YOUR dreams a reality.

I design custom wedding gowns and collections from my private New England studio and I looove coming up with ideas to leave jaws dropping and hearts thumping.

I absolutely love what I get to do and I can’t wait to work with you!

#3: Want me to design your DREAM Wedding Dress? Send me a convo! The process is simple: send me your inspiration pics and wedding date and purchase my Sketch listing here: https://www.etsy.com/ByDaniSimoneShop/listing/261025037/custom-wedding-dress-sketch-customized?utm_source=Copy&utm_medium=ListingManager&utm_campaign=Share&utm_term=so.lmsm&share_time=1626650834670 the price will be credited towards your wedding dress purchase. I'll create a custom sketch of your gown and once approved I'll provide you with the price of your gown and a listing for purchase.

Why does the perfect wedding dress start with a sketch?

I stay inspired by beautiful #BoldBrides like you and I spend a lot of time sketching my inspiration.

Each sketch represents a #BoldBride who would look amazing in one of my unique creations and I share these ideas on my Pinterest account (@AisleTrendsbyDaniSimone).

You’ll see Concept illustrations throughout my shop which serve as muses for my imagination and are a starting point for what is possible. I also believe in sustainable fashion production and utilizing sketches helps cut down on over production and fashion waste- the bane of the industry.

My background as a professional designer working in both the NYC & LA Garment districts left me with a distaste for waste and I’ve reflected this in my business operations. A focus on made to order collections and custom gowns means that your wedding dress purchase is good for the earth too.

High five 🙌🏾 to that!
