A little Q&A with the designer:

Q. What is your design inspiration? 

Usually a period in time.  I love all things mid-century.  Styles from the 50’s and 60’s were clean and simple.  Fabric, texture and detail made a garment special.  I believe in looking back at your wedding and loving your dress as much in 20 years as the first time you tried it on. From fabric sourcing to creating a new silhouette, I keep this in mind.


Q. Tell me two little known facts about you:

1.  I once lived with two boys and a goat.  Long story. 
2.  I have a mean addiction to Peeps.


Q. Describe your personal style:

Jeans and a sweater. I love to be comfortable.  As a mother of two young boys, my days of wearing heels on a daily basis are long gone. I am a human jungle gym as soon as I walk in the door from work.


Q. What is your favorite article of clothing?

A pair of vintage cowboy boots from the 70’s I bought on eBay and a Vintage Mink Stole my husband gave me for Christmas a few years ago.


Q. Favorite vacation spot:

Jots Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands, Jackson, Wyoming and Udaipur, India


Q. When did you know that you were going to design bridal?

 I knew from an early age (6) that I wanted to design clothes.  It wasn’t until my Ready-to-Wear Customers were asking me to design their wedding dresses that I started to design bridal.  I love working with beautiful fabrics and having the limitations of a neutral color palette.  It is very rewarding being a part of the most important dress in a woman’s life.


Q. Who is your style icon?

Living- SJP.  Probably because Sex and The City was so influential in my 20’s. Past- Twiggy or Grace Kelly


Q. If you could dress any celebrity, who would it be? SJP


Q. What is the last great book that you read?

Pete the Cat - I have probably read it 50 times this past week. My 2 year old is somewhat obsessed with the little black feline.


Q. Any advice for brides? 

Don’t stress over the details.  Remember to take a moment during your wedding and look at all of the friends and family that have come to support you and your spouse.  It’s a wonderful feeling to be surrounded by so much love. The wedding is just the beginning of a wonderful adventure.  Remember there is a lifetime after the party.
