For nearly two decades as a Vogue editor, fashion was my life. I had the unique privilege of collaborating with some of the world’s most creative individuals. From styling the fashion pages to working with designers, I was in a rare position to communicate with women. I also learned how to hone my eye and trust my creative instincts to an extent even I could never have imagined. The incomparable training I received continues to guide my work today.
As a fashion professional and a former bride, I am now able to translate all of that knowledge and love of style to the visual and emotional vocabulary of weddings. Having experienced weddings from both a personal and professional perspective, I can truthfully say that no one is more dedicated to brides than I am.
In writing this, I have been constantly amazed by the style, imagination, and individuality of the women I’ve dressed. Not in my wildest dreams could I have anticipated the creativity my gowns would inspire and the impact of the clothes we so painstakingly create in our design studio. As photographs from all over the world started coming into our office, I was equally moved by the beauty, grace and elegance of these celebrations. Each wedding represented its own unique take on timeless tradition. From the gown and veil to the cake and flowers, seeing these brides in their moment of glory gave me a newfound appreciation for the work we do.
