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.
