What We’re Loving: Like Minded Locals

Are you a bride getting married in Spring or Summer of 2013?  Now is the time to start shopping!  And what better than purchasing a gown produced right in your backyard!

Here are some fabulous facts about two of our favorite designers who have upcoming trunk shows  at our  boutique in June- Modern Trousseau and Amsale.

We love these designers because they have the same values and beliefs as we do- each produce unique, domestically made gowns and they believe in treating each bride with the individualized attention she deserves.

 Amsale and Modern Trousseau design, cut and sew their collections locally ,in Connecticut and New York City respectively. Both create a unique pattern for each bride with special attention to the clients specific measurements and customizations.

The TWD team had the pleasure of traveling to NYC this past winter to visit Amsale in her design studio (check out the post here). We witnessed Amsale’s skilled workers cutting, draping and sewing gorgeous couture gowns. We were thrilled to see all the hand sewing, pleating and beading that goes into making just a single Amsale gown. We even had the pleasure of meeting with Ms. Amsale Abbera herself (working hard right amongst the rest of her team ,we might add).

Designer, Callie Tien, of Modern Trousseau works in quite the same fashion- amongst her staff of seamstresses in charming Woodbridge, Connecticut. Callie’s attention to detail and hand-draped custom fit make her designs irresistible to the classic, yet modern bride looking for something truly special.

We have a long-standing relationship with Modern Trousseau-  in fact we were the first store in the country to carry them!  We are honored to be their exclusive Connecticut retailer.

Stay tuned to the blog for a post about the special ‘muslin process’ offered by The White Dress by the shore and Modern Trousseau in which you are able to make customizations to get the perfect fit,  as the gown is constructed right on your body!

 Join us for two exclusive events happening with these designers this month and receive a 10% discount off of your purchase.  This is your chance to try on stunning, hand made designs that you’re sure to fall in love with.  

Ring us at 860.669.4596 to reserve  your spot at our Modern Trousseau Trunk Show running Thursday, June 7th – Saturday,June 9th and our Amsale Trunk Show running Thursday, June 21st – Saturday, June 23rd.  Modern Trousseau ddesigner Callie Tein will be present at the trunk show on the 9th!

    I love reading about like-minded locals. It’s pretty incredible that these dress designers are among the best and right here in our own back yard. I have a small business in Connecticut also. I have been tailoring brides for decades and now there are two other brands on my web site. The Something Old Collection is made up of high quality and designer costume jewelry from as early as the 1930’s. Brides love the idea of vintage and these pieces blend beautifully with modern dresses. I also have my own line of custom millinery. I would welcome an opportunity to style a model shoot as well as share the web site with your followers. Brides come to my studio for their fitting and can try on jewelry until we find the perfect pieces. It’s a rare opportunity as you are seldom in your dress when you choose your accessories. I hope you have a moment to visit my web site–I would love your feedback! Thanks so much, Bridget
