Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. Other connections to fashion?
I've been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and written articles for The Wedding Gazette and Pash. In addition to designing, I'm the editor of Bride Chic, an online fashion resource for brides looking for that touch of 'wow' on their wedding day. Currently I'm working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
