Today I had the pleasure of meeting with Saukok Tiampo, co-founder of 57Grand, at her NYC showroom in the garment district. It was great to meet another passionate person in the wedding industry and see their modern and chic designs. The dresses are inspired by New York City, and designed and made in NYC's garment district. The 14 styles in the bridesmaid collection are available at retail prices from $155 to $295. I love how their website shows how you can rewear and accessorize the dress after the wedding. If you are not planning to rewear the dress, you can donate it. 57Grand has partnered with a non-profit organization Operation Prom, which provides dresses and gowns to low income students hoping to attend prom. What a great idea!
57Grand recently launched their bridal collection. The styles are named after NYC landmarks and retail prices range from $495 to $595 for short dresses and $750 to $1500 for long gowns. The bridal line will debut in 4 stores this month:
Flair Boston MA
Bella Bridesmaid Los Gatos CA
Bella Bridesmaid Charlotte NC
The full collection of bridal and bridesmaid dresses are available at their NYC showroom at 250 West 39th St, 8th Floor, NY NY 10018, and via their sample programme.
