Designer Spotlight: Monique Lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier up close!

Monique Lhuillier’s passion is fashion. Her early experiences were admiring her mother whose personal sense of style was a huge influence on the designer growing up in the Philippines. To pursue her interest more seriously, she moved to Los Angeles to attend the

Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing (FIDM).

Today her brand is recognized as one of America’s premier couture bridal and ready-to-wear brands. The Monique Lhuillier brand was established in 1996 after the designer herself came up empty handed on a search for her own wedding dress. Dismayed by the lack of fashionable bridal options available at the time, she set to work and debuted her first bridal collection to acclaim from editors and retailers. The next year, her husband Tom joined the company as CEO, and the couture design house now known as Monique Lhuillier was born.

In 2003, Monique was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America. She’s dressed celebrities and political figures alike, from Halle Berry and Reese Witherspoon to Drew Barrymore and Michelle Obama, but perhaps most notably, her brand has become a symbol of grace and luxury for brides-to-be everywhere.

Monique Lhuillier gowns are characterized by femininity and glamour. Her refined design and immaculate construction offer silhouettes imbued with effortlessness and sophistication. Her gowns have the power to make you feel like you’re both sexy and bride-like all at once.
