I discovered my passion for the fashion industry at 7 years old. I can remember making clothes for my dolls out of any fabric I could find! Though I went to college and graduated with a degree in Business Marketing, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I should be designing. SO I scratched the itch and enrolled myself into the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with the intention of starting my career as an independent couture wedding and evening gown designer.
In 2011 I designed my first wedding gown for a friend and of course, I was addicted! Each VENE AI gown is designed with a little bit of love, the finest materials, a dash of unexpectedness, and the promise to make you feel the very best YOU.
My husband Freddy and I married in 2014 after dating for 3 years long distance. I was in Taiwan while Freddy was in beautiful Los Angeles … Needless to say we are experts at Skype! I often get asked if I made my own wedding gown and my answer is always "OF COURSE!" I didn't only make one … I made two! Each as unique as the moment that I wore them during our wedding day. You can often find us at the movies (if I'm not designing!) or at the grocery store searching for that perfect ingredient for a hearty home-cooked meal.
I love a fresh bunch of peonies, rose gold accents, and the occasional road trip with my husband … Designing for brides-to-be will always be my dream job and I continue to pinch myself each time I look at where I started to where I am now. I can’t wait to meet you and hear all about your special day!
