Her simple and elegant designs are usually made with comfortable knit fabrics. She prefers working with any material that has a slight stretch and usually designs with stretch velvets and panne in rich jewel tone colors. She feels that "being comfortable is very important" and designs most of her gowns with this in mind. Her choice of fabrics, simple cuts and easy construction make her gowns a very desirable option for the modern bride looking for comfort. Her designs are flattering to a women's body and fit with little to no alteration. She is able to construct a well fitting gown with out a zipper made from knit fabrics.In some cases, such as a corset styled gown, she prefers adjustable lacing through grommets or loop trims. Most of her skirts are flowing circular cuts which she prefers over gathering and netting. Her gowns are mostly A-line, Princess or Mermaid styles, but Ball gowns that require fullness can be worn over crinoline slips and hoop skirts.
"We wear comfortable clothing everyday, with knit tops and stretch jeans, why would we wear any thing different for a special occasion or our wedding day?"
Our gowns are made from knit materials that allows comfortable easy wearing. These elegant wedding gowns are created from soft sensual fabrics, such as sumptuous stretch velvet, crushed panne velour, delicate floral lace, sheer flowing chiffon, beautiful rose brocade, and sparkling mirror organza.

These fabrics can be worn any season, whether you are having a summer, spring, fall or winter wedding. The combination of our light weight fabrics and simple style cuts give our wedding gowns a flowing and flattering fit that needs little to no alterations. Many of our wedding gowns are available in white, ivory, cream or champagne (accented with silver, gold or antique gold) making it easy to find a gown that will complement your skin tone. Our signature designer wedding gowns combine color such as Garnet, Amethyst, Emerald and Sapphire jewel tones with traditional white, ivory and champagne fabrics to create truly unique wedding dresses that burst with creativity.
