About

"I've never been so honest!" - Kat Krafel

Veiled Beauty was founded in November of 2008 on a whim! I was prompted by my sister in law to create an Etsy shop. I took her advice and began juggling 5 jobs all while obsessing about the potential of Veiled Beauty. I would lay my head at night filled with fantasies yet overcome by self-doubt and defeat. I was a not-so-happy newlywed living in the Rampart District of Los Angeles--in other words the ghetto--and utterly depressed. My juggling consisted of an assistant design position for a Cuban bikini company, teaching aerobic classes, personal training, nannying a little girl and supervising a maternity shelter for pregnant homeless women.

When I was more or less "let go of" or "fired" from my assistant design bikini position I hit rock bottom! I'd NEVER been fired and, to be honest, this is the first time I am actually admitting that I was! Until now, I have always referred to it as "just not the right fit" with a string of rationalizations why. The truth is, I would have fired me too. I was clearly distracted and longed to be investing in my own designs. I longed to put my NAME in the credits. I longed for something more than fanning someone else's flames. Herein lies the theatrical plot twist where I could hunker down and pull the covers up past my shameful eyes, or I could set out on an adventure to prove to myself that getting fired was the best thing to ever happen to me!

Unfortunately, I chose to do the former. A lingering depression already had a hold of my thoughts, and here is where it really sunk its teeth into me: some call depression a "learned helplessness" and I would attest to this definition. Days grew shorter and nights longer. The confidence I had once needed to keep in check was squelched by hopeless thoughts and feelings of meaninglessness. The hours I had once filled with crafty DIY projects like reupholstering discarded furniture from the streets of Los Angeles, turning thrift store picture frames into chalkboards, and sewing my own clothes were replaced by hours and hours of checked out television. Shameful to admit because it's a shame to waste such precious time!

By the grace of God, I managed to keep Veiled Beauty afloat during these difficult years. In many ways, Veiled Beauty was my one passion and window to a world where I could hold onto the talents I had inherited! My creativity and entrepreneurship was in hibernation. Glimmers would shine through here and there during photoshoots and while designing new lines, but what I remember the most is the struggle. The struggle to feel motivated, to get up and use my day, to put one foot in front of the other. The struggle to smile.

There was no Hollywood moment where I was miraculously impassioned with life again. It was and still is a process! A choice to use the time I've been given! A daily decision to continue to make new habits not excuses! Even a goal as simple as vowing to make my bed every morning has helped! I have stopped comparing myself to my comrades and chosen to embrace my stylistic differences. I have chosen to enjoy the design process even if the end result winds up in the trash. I have found pleasure in a vast array of the "small business owner" responsibilities. One day I'm the head seamstress guiding silk through the eye of a needle and the next I'm a marketing student teaching myself how to use Illustrator, Photoshop and Lightroom through YouTube posts.

So to answer the question, "When did Veiled Beauty R E A L L Y take off?" I would say I'm not sure it has yet! I imagine it will be one of those goosebumps moments etched in my mind forever. I'm eager for this day whilst patiently waiting. I aim to be grateful in prosperity and want. I aim for contentment in-spite of the longing in my loins. I whole-heartedly believe it's near, yet know I won't actually believe it when it's here! - KK

Frequently asked questions

What is a Blusher/Second Layer?

A blusher is the second layer or tier of tulle that is often, but doesn't have to be, worn over the face as you walk down the aisle. It is traditional and incredibly romantic to have your man lift the veil before your first kiss as husband and wife. Whoever is walking you down the aisle can also be the one to lift the blusher over your face to your back before they hand you off to your soon-to-be significant other.

Does Veiled Beauty make custom blush, grey or black veils?

We sure do! Simply inquire with Kathy if you don't see the option in the listing's drop down menu.

Will my color Ivory match Veiled Beauty's Ivory?

Keep in mind that every designer has a different name and interpretation of what a "White" or "Ivory" dress looks like. My Diamond White may be another designer's Ivory. Though I love receiving photos of your wedding dress, they often don't accurately represent the color of your dress. My recommendations are only as reliable as the photos you provide. That's why actually seeing and feeling the fabric swatches in person can prove to be most helpful when selecting the perfect color match. I have included a list and description of Veiled Beauty's color options below.

What is the difference between English Net and Bridal Illusion Tulle?

English Net is much softer and feels more like fabric than Bridal Illusion Tulle. English Net is perfect for the bride that wants minimal pouf and loves the way it falls straight down from the comb(s). See here:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/170097265/english-net-soft-drape-juliet-bridal-cap?ref=shop_home_active_9

Bridal Illusion Tulle has more loft to it. A dramatic veil with lots of volume can be achieved with multiple layers or lots of gathering of Bridal Illusion Tulle. Bridal Illusion Tulle is very light and catches a gust of wind easily. See here:

How do I measure myself for a custom length veil?

This is much easier with help from a friend or your honey! You'll need a string/ribbon and a ruler. Try to measure with a similar hairstyle as you intend to wear on the bog day. Place the string/ribbon on your head where you you'll want to wear the comb (near the ear line for Juliet caps). Then let it fall naturally in the back or to the floor of your desired length. It is best to do this while wearing your wedding gown if it has a train. For longer veils let the string tail behind you, similar to how the veil would fall and don't pull the string taught on the ground. Allow a bit of slack. Take the string and measure it out on a ruler. For a blusher do the same thing, just let the string fa

How are Veiled Beauty veils worn?

Classic veils are attached to a gently curved 4" silver metal comb. The curve of the comb should be placed with the curve of your scalp. We've found that metal combs are more secure and easier for hair stylists to work with. If you would rather I put loops for bobby pins I'm happy to do that too. Simply message me.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale inquires gladly accepted! Message Kathy directly for more details.

How Are Veiled Beauty Bridal Caps Worn?

There are two small combs attached to either side of the cap near the ear where the tulle gathers. For best placement, slide one comb in and then hold it in place while you put the other one in. When pushing the second comb in, don't be scared to stretch the tulle a bit so that there is some tension on the cap when you slide the second comb in. The tension on the cap will help hold the combs in place. This may take some practice before you get a REALLY secure placement. The caps can be worn high or low on the head. The placement completely depends on your preference.

Care instructions

Make sure to take your veil out of the package and hang it up so the wrinkles can begin to fall out. You way want to hang dry cleaners plastic over the veil to protect it. You can also place in a garment bag but be very careful using the zipper as to not snag the veil. We highly recommend ironing your veil on LOW (silk setting) with a pillow case places IN BETWEEN your veil and the iron to ensure that you don't burn your veil. Do NOT steam your veil.
