Get to know Sara Gabriel | TWD Accessories Designer

Get to know Sara Gabriel | TWD Accessories Designer 

Our next accessories Trunk Show is fast approaching, and with the designer herself joining us for it, we wanted our brides to get to know Sara Gabriel. (PS- She will be here for the Feb. 23 & Feb. 24)

Denver-based designer Sara Gabriel learned how to sew from her mother when she was a child. Her eponymous label began as a bespoke service in 2000, when she designed her first veil for a friend, and while the company has grown exponentially, the spirit remains: each piece is made entirely by hand, one at a time, from beginning to end. Using Swarovski crystals, French lace, freshwater pearls, and silk organza, her delicate designs are influenced by modern brides and vintage detailing. Read below about the designer from her point of view! 

Heritage :

“The official story (the one I’ll tell if I’m pressed for time) is that I launched Sara Gabriel, my namesake company, in July of 2000 in my tiny Denver apartment. But if you have the time I’ll tell you the real story. My company started when I was 5 years old sitting by my mother who was teaching me to use her sewing machine, and when I was eleven traveling around the country in my dad’s VW camper bus, cross-stitching glittering mermaids to pass the time. It also started  in high school when I began obsessing over everything that sparkled, or was even tangentially related to weddings. Like all true loves, mine feels like it has been with me my entire life, and I can honestly say that getting to wake up every day and make women feel beautiful is deeply fulfilling and an unbelievable dream come true.”

Technique :

“Having grown my tiny company into one of the most sought-after, and recognizable brands in the industry, I am committed to staying true to my roots. I create my designs in the most difficult way possible: completely by hand, one at a time, and just for you from beginning to end. Every veil is individually cut, every crystal is hand placed, and every lace appliqué attached one at a time, just like the first pieces I made over 18 years ago. Not everyone does it this way but I believe that the care, and love, my team and I put into each piece will show from the moment you open your box to the moment you walk down the aisle!”

Inspiration:

“I design my collection each year with one eye on traditional elements that grant a timeless quality to the brides who wear them, and the other eye on free-thinking, spirited brides who know who they are and want their personality to show. I want every one of my brides to sparkle and shine in her own way, and I use glittering Swarovski crystals, classic French laces, refined construction techniques and the softest veiling tulle imaginable to ensure they do. Ultimately, I’m inspired by you!” ♥︎ – xoxo Sara

You can however see a sampling of the selection here. If you are not in our general vicinity, or your schedule does not align with our store hours, we are happy to loan you gowns from The Sample Closet to try on in your home via our TWD at home services.  You can learn more about that here.

1. Work with trained & knowledgeable stylists 

The stylists at The White Dress by The Shore provide a one-on-one experience and help you find the perfect look for not only you, but the entire bridal party for your wedding day.  They work with each party individually to select styles, colors and patterns that reflect the aesthetic of the bride’s gown and the overall feel of the wedding.  Mix and match bridesmaid dresses are all the rage; however, let’s face it…it is NOT easy to put together a curated look.  We are here to help with that..in fact we love doing it!

6.  Bridesmaid Wishlist 

We offer the convenience of shopping online with the benefit of still being able to work with our stylists by offering our bridesmaid wishlist.  Brides visit the boutique to work with one of our stylists on selecting the perfect dresses for their maids.  They then add the styles that they want their party to wear into the Wishlist on our website and email the link to their bridesmaids.  Through that link, maids are able to select the style, color and size, complete our policy form and pay for their dress.  The dresses will be delivered to our boutique after they have been produced by the designer. We do offer shipping if needed.
