Hi there lovely! I'm Katherine, designer & stylist just outside of NYC! I help brides and entrepreneurs find elegance (& simplicity!) in an industry filled with overwhelming options and quick-dissolve trends. Here on the blog you'll find the behind the scenes of our joy-filled studio, special peeks into the bridal collections, bits of education for designers, and the style secrets I've curated over a decade long love affair with French life & style (and y'know it's the real deal when it comes with a French husband and bilingual littles...).

a peek behind the seams

I spent a week this winter wandering the streets of Paris with the kids, while G was off at work up in La Defense. We found every park we could, munched on way too many pastries, and had an all-together lovely time as I introduced the littles to the city where I fell in love […]

This summer, I’m headed back to France with two custom gowns, and an incredibly full heart as Abby Grace Photography and I launch The Signature Atelier; an intimate destination workshop for photographers just outside of Paris, France. We’re hosting 10 lovely photographers for a week of education, being inspired by Paris, delicious meals taken together, and a […]

This custom wedding dress for a beautiful & intimate wedding just outside Paris, France is one for the books. I adore all of my brides, and I’ve been blessed to have some pretty incredible ones, but this one… I don’t even know how to put it into words. Réanna is like a sister. She and […]

In January the kids and I hopped on an overnight flight to Paris, ready for our 6 week year-opener in France!! We left a few days before G because his vacation time hadn’t quite started yet, so I was on my own with the littles for the first five days of the trip. Sounds awesome […]

If you have ever considered a tulle skirt fort your wedding attire, then I can’t wait for you to see the pictures below!! When I designed my first tulle skirt a few years ago, I never imagined that eventually they would be part of a bridal collection as well, but this bridal tulle skirt is […]

Dear K, I want a wedding dress plus a reception dress. Can they be completely different, or do I need to make sure there’s continuity between the two gowns? Sincerely, Overwhelmed-and-confused-with-all-the-options.   Dear Overwhelmed-and-confused-with-all-the-options, I hear you! There are SO many different styles of wedding gowns out there, and when you consider a reception gown […]

This is one of the first spots in Paris that I saw at night, and I fell in love with it instantly. It was just after I had moved there, and a friend and I went to see the National Cuban Ballet perform Giselle at le ­­­Grand Palais. At intermission we walked out to the […]

Every girl who has ever been a bridesmaid has most likely at least once looked at at least one of their bridesmaids dresses and thought, where will I ever wear this again? You know the thought right?! All the dresses look beautiful lined up next to the bride, but most are worn once and forgotten. […]

So it’s no secret that I married into a French family, and have spent a LOT of time bouncing back and forth between Paris & the states. And if you’ve been following along for a while now on instagram you know it’s no secret that I LOVE good classic style, and my married-into French roots are a […]

One of the first questions I hear during each and every consult with my brides is, “What will the dress be made out of?” They want to know whether it’s silk or polyester, what the fabric will feel like, what it will look like, and how it will move. And most importantly, whether or not […]
