What We're Loving: Like Minded Locals
May 31, 2012
Are you a bride getting married in Spring or Summer of 2013?Â Now is the time to start shopping!Â 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 showsÂ atÂ our Â 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. Â 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- Â in fact we were the first store in the country to carry them!Â We are honored to be their exclusive Connecticut retailer. Stay tuned to the blog for aÂ post about theÂ 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, Â as the gown is constructed right on your body!
