Meet The Designer

Hey there, I’m Abby! I’m the woman behind the sewing machine making the magic happen. I am a hopeless romantic, which might explain my love for this beautiful detail-oriented industry I’ve been a part of for the past ten years. Every love story is completely unique and I believe your bridal gown should be too!

When I’m not working in my studio, you can find me curled up on the couch binge watching Friends for the 100th time with my boyfriend and our two English bulldogs. While I love my homebody lifestyle, I will never say no to grabbing a glass of wine with an amazing cheese board to accompany it. Like a true Wisconsinite, I believe cheese makes everything taste better.

I grew up in Milwaukee and have spent almost all of my life here. After graduating from Mount Mary University with my fasion design degree, I jet off to New York to work under one of the industry’s biggest names. It was this dream chasing experience that led me back home to Milwaukee to pursue my life long passion of starting my own label.

My design aesthetic is classic with an edge. Think a silk mermaid gown with architectural lines and a leather jacket or a traditional ballgown in jet black. I have always been passionate about creating truly couture gowns made of only the highest quality silks and stunning embellishments. All of my gowns are made 100% by hand in my Milwaukee studio.

My gown collection can currently be found exclusively at Strike Bridal Bar in Milwaukee, WI. I also work with a limited number of custom clients a year. If you are interested in the custom process, let’s chat! Contact me at and let’s grab a cup of coffee!
