Paloma Blanca
Always keep an open mind, dresses look different on a hanger, so it's important to try a few styles before making a decision. Remember to have fun and just enjoy it, those are memories that you will treasure for a lifetime!

Elegant, romantic and timeless pieces. Understated silhouettes with sleek sophistication; old Hollywood style.


I studied and graduated from Fashion Design at Sheridan College, I then proceeded to working in the bridal retail industry for 4 years before pursuing a career as Head Designer at Paloma Blanca. I think very few people can say that they love their jobs, I can truly say that I am one of those people. I am very passionate about my work and feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be working for a great company as Paloma Blanca. Before designing I do extensive research on top wedding gown trends for each season. The inspiration of my designs comes from many things that surround me.

Unexpected Fact:

I am a Breast Cancer survivor, I was diagnosed 12 years ago. It has changed the way I look at the world, it has shaped me into a positive person and I don't take life for granted.

Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered.”
