Bio - Monique Lhuillier
Monique Lhuillier has taken the fashion industry by storm. Monique Lhuillier and Tom Bugbee, a young, dynamic husband and wife team, founded the upscale bridal company in 1996. The bridal line has been extremely well received and can be viewed at department stores and specialty boutiques throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, and Japan.Within six short years, Monique Lhuillier has not only established herself as one of the leading bridal designers, but she also introduced her first Ready-to-Wear Collection with 7th on Sixth at the NY Bryant Park Tents in Fall 2003 which garnered impressive editorial reviews. The Fall 2004 collection has a dark romantic feeling. Sophisticated looks feature dramatic cuts that are structured but not stiff. The collection is versatile and modern American, yet glamorous and luxurious, rich with color. The Fall collection exhibits a play on textures, such as velvets that are paired with chiffons, and silk satins that are mixed with crepes. The collection is available at specialty stores and select Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue Stores throughout North America, Asia, and the Middle East.
