I was surprised at the fact that there were bridal gowns produced right there in the back and sold across the US. I was proud to belong and learn from such an organization. It was a small operation, lead by the designer and business manager, 3 people in the office to inspect production, order supplies and materials, and take care of the financial stuff. There were about 20 people in the back; developing patterns, cutting fabrics, sewing dresses and putting in the final touches by hand. It was very cool to see the orders come in and then ship the dresses a few days later (maybe not the same dress from that order but a dress that was built in a few days).
I will share what I learned about selecting and ordering “the dress” next time...stay tuned!
