Susan Ruddie noticed a trend. More women were buying wedding gowns at shops that didn’t offer alteration services. The experienced costume designer decided to assume the role of bridal specialist with a team of designers, milliners, pattern makers, and tailors. Within her studio, the talented team styles bridal looks by altering and re-styling gowns and matching accessories, veils, and wraps. They even help out after the big day by transforming formal wedding gowns into flirty ensembles you really would wear again.
Ruddie’s hats and accessories have appeared in runway shows for Marc Jacobs and Isaac Mizrahi, as well as graced the pages of multiple publications, including The Knot.
