Occupation Bridal Gown Designer
Location San Anselmo, California, United States
Introduction I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric years happened way 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. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past. Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently 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 in Marin County California. Want to see more of what I do? Check out my site at or call me 415.336.3480
