There is no better way to ring in a trunk show weekend than with the introduction of the designer of the hour’s collection! We quietly and recently introduced an amazing selection of Spring 2014 Couture gowns by the ultra talented Matthew Christopher to our website.

In April 2013, we announced the addition of Australia-based bridal couture label Martina Liana to our designer wedding gown lineup. Now we’re pleased to say we have added to our salon fresh styles from Martina Liana’s Spring 2014 Collection. An accentuated waist is a popular feature among our handpicked selection (though brides who prefer a ball don’t have to feel left out). All feature texture, a sweetheart neckline, movement and exquisite detailing. There’s variety, too, with some styles featuring an embellished sash, others featuring barely-there cap sleeves. There’s a little something here for every romantic, glamorous bride. Call (818) 246-4637 to make an appointment to select your perfect Martina Liana gown!
