Designed: Modern Trousseau

Meet Callie Tien, the designer behind Modern Trousseau offered at our Huntsville Bridal Shop.

Modern Trousseau is without a doubt one of the most amazing companies in the bridal world today. Callie Tien, the designer behind the label, consistently produces some of the best collections available at bridal market - always making sure she marries timeless and elegant with new bridal trends. With so many of our brides getting married in gowns created specifically for them by Callie, we thought we would share a little history on why we absolutely adore Modern Trousseau and offer it in our Alabama bridal boutique.

Callie has been in love with fashion since she was a young girl living in Australia. Callie pursued her love for fashion by studying Fashion Design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Upon graduation, Callie honed her design skills in women's and children's wear for various Australian companies, eventually landing her a position designing wedding gowns. Callie discovered she had a special talent for creating memorable gowns and fell in love with the bridal industry.

Modern Trousseau works with amazing French and Italian laces, imported silks and delicate beadwork. It is always extremely evident that Modern Trousseau takes a tremendous amount of time in selecting fabrics to use on their gowns and many times, when a specific fabric fitting Callie's vision can't be found, Callie will design the intricate lace and beadwork patterns herself.

One of the things we love about Modern Trousseau is that they create Made to Measure gowns. A Made to Measure gown is a gown that is made specifically to your measurements instead of ordered in a size. This provides the most amazing fit for our brides and ensures that they are wearing something that was truly created for their body shape. This is just one of the many amazing things Modern Trousseau does - the company has amazing attention to detail and constructs every dress in their Connecticut atelier.

Routinely our brides want something that is a little different - that maybe is an image they have thought up in their head, but have yet to see executed on the market. We always suggest that those brides look at ordering a Modern Trousseau gown. Callie and her team can do amazing custom pieces and are very understanding about changing their own gown designs to accommodate what a bride has in mind.

White Dresses Co-Founder, Kara Leonard, shared why Callie is one of her favorite designers around. 

I absolutely love the workmanship of Modern Trousseau gowns. Every time I have worked with a bride who has ordered a Modern Trousseau gown, I have the confidence that the gown will come in wonderfully. I am updated every step of the way if there is a question about how a gown is progressing, which is amazing for a company to do when they have so many brides.
