A Word From the Designer
“My whole life, I knew I had wanted to be a fashion designer. Growing up, the entrepreneur in me shined through at a very young age when I opened my first store in my parent’s house. I had so much fun “opening” my shop, and I knew that I would one day own my own businesses. Ever since I was a young girl, I would embroider all of my clothes by hand with sequins, ribbons, beads and whatever I could get my hands on! People would ask me how I could sit there for hours putting on each bead, one by one. But I truly enjoyed it and loved seeing the very boring product turn into something so unique and different.
Little did I know, the things I did at such a young age would lead me to my passion of where I am today, designing custom wedding dresses, accessories and couture collections! I have always had a love for Haute Couture, and the intricacy of each unique design and fabric thrills me. The details in couture gowns have always inspired me to create something unique and magnificent in whatever I do. Designers that truly inspire my creations are Elie Saab, Dior, Galia Lahav, Marchesa, Berta Bridal, and Inbal Dror.
I earned my BA in Fashion Design at the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio, TX. I studied couture embroidery, surface design and traveled the world upon graduating to explore design in every aspect through out the world. I have worked for many couture houses which is where I have gained a lot of my bridal experience, learned couture sewing techniques and knowledge about the wedding industry.
I am so excited to have you as a client and I can not wait to bring your dream dress to life! Book your design consultation today!
