The designer recently dressed Bachelorette star, Emily Maynard, for her southern-inspired surprise wedding! Each garment is a one-of-a-kind, wearable work of art created to mark that very special moment when a woman becomes a bride.
Modern Trousseau uses only the finest quality fabrics from France, Italy, and Spain for both its couture and ready-to-wear collections. Twice a year, designer Callie Tein sources the exquisite laces, silks, and brocades from around the world that define her romantic bridal collections.
The hallmark of a Modern Trousseau bridal gown is customization.
A couture gown is uniquely constructed and finished by hand at Modern Trousseau’s Connecticut atelier. A bride may select a sample style from one of our flagship showrooms or partner boutiques, and request customizations such as a sleeve, different lace, change of neckline, etc., or the designer will work with the bride to sketch a unique gown for construction in the fabric of her choice. Modern Trousseau couture gowns are lined in 100% silk with an embroidered ‘signature’ inside the dress. A couture Modern Trousseau gown is made to measure for individual brides, guaranteeing a perfect, flattering fit.
Ready-to-wear styles are created in standard bridal sizing, and often require additional alterations by a seamstress prior to the wedding. These deluxe garments are mass-produced from an approved sample, allowing the retailer to offer a collection at a discounted cost.
Modern Trousseau gowns are available at boutiques worldwide, along with flagship showrooms in New York City, Nashville, and Charleston, SC. For more information, please visit moderntrousseau.com
