dressmaker + stylist




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...).
