Monique Lhuillier

with one comment

Born and raised in the Philippines, Monique Lhuillier has become one of the top fashion designers in the world. Well known for her wedding gowns, her collections also include evening gowns, ready-to-wear, tableware, and linens.

She studied at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), where she met her husband Tom Bugbee.

In 1996, she debuted her first bridal collection; inspiration for that collection came in 1995, when she was shopping for her own wedding gown and, according to her website, “was surprised by the lack of fashion infused bridal options.”

In 2003, Lhuillier was inducted as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

This photo was taken in 2009 during a Monique Lhuillier event at a Bed, Bath, and Beyond event in New York City where she was introducing her Waterford tableware collection for fans.
