Introducing me...

Hey guys,

So I'm obviously new at the whole blogging thing, but I'm giving it my best shot. Here's a bit about me, my background etc, and what qualifies me to be the person  brides go to for any and all wedding dress woes.

I'm a native Long Islander, who found out in high school that a love of sewing translated into a talent for design. I attended NCC and graduated with an A.A.S. in Apparel Design, then moved overseas to London where I studied at the London College of Fashion and received my FdA in Fashion Design Technology: Designer Pattern Cutter, and my B.A. (Hons) in Fashion Design and Technology.

I worked for couture bridal designer Ian Stuart at the International Bridal Design Fair in Battersea Park, West London, and interned for Anne Bowen Bridal in New York City.



Since then, I've completely redesigned, fitted and re-constructed a good friend's wedding gown (pictures and story to follow!), and done minor tucks and alterations on an international friend's reception gown. Currently, I've been commissioned for a third bridal re-design, and am in the beginning stages of changing this gown from a woe to a wow.

All this inbetween regular alterations and seamstress work.

Busy, busy sewing-bee.

Best,

Shannon
