From the West coast beaches, and the long, windy drive along Pacific Coast Highway to wine country and redwoods, it’s easy to see why the world is in a love affair with California. Designing this Romantique wedding dress collection, I was inspired by the diversity of my hometown, Los Angeles and the richness of the Golden State.
Laguna features stunning crochet cut-out lace with side slit sheer skirt, illusion back, and slight sweep train.
Carmel is made of cotton floral embroidery on a flowing net skirt with delicate tulle straps across the open back.
The City of Angels attracts beautiful people from across the globe, from every culture, searching for that ineffable dream. Growing up here was perhaps the perfect place for my own dreamer’s heart to find its way.

Monterey has a simple floral lace silhouette accented by an illusion lace bateau neckline and sheer illusion back.
Silverlake exudes that effortless beauty we all lust after…and the prettiest flutter sleeves.
Integral to the LA vibe, of course I had to give our beach babes and bohemian spirit equal time with crocheted laces, sexy backs, and sheer, red-carpet-ready accents. Legs, backs, and beach inspired details are perfect for a walk in the sand, or vows in a sun-dappled forest. Did someone say Big Sur? Or Ibiza? Or Morocco?
Yes, her name is Malibu. This cotton crochet lace with open low back, and scalloped lace chapel train had to be!
And of course, Coachella with her long boho sleeves, this side slit sheath of crochet lace with tassel tie open back might be my favorite.
Our city’s Spanish roots are evident not only in the names of many of our towns and streets, but in the rich tradition of Latina culture so befitting a beautiful bride. Embellished necklines, backs and sleeves convey a refined mood, and the embroideries and scalloped laces impart a touch of celebrity glamour.
Olvera Fiesta flowers adorn the fan motif lace with a low, open cross-back, and chapel train.
La Cienega has a graceful flowing skirt with scalloped lace hem and illusion bateau neckline with open keyhole back.
Palisades V-neck lace gown with gold silk ribbon waist with organza flowers, and cathedral length train…simply stunning.
Bel Air features elaborate embroidery with just a touch of sparkle, and look at that back!
Pasadena is the epitome of old-world elegance. Embroidered tulle long sleeves, illusion front and back, with a gorgeous cathedral length train.
Santa Monica is regal in her matching cape, with a “wow” fitted silhouette of embroidered tulle underneath.

Sunset on the beach, care-free in the breeze of a vineyard, or luxe lace mantilla style…take your pick. In California, anything goes.
The new Romantique California Dreamin’ collection will be arriving in stores Summer 2016.
