For me it all started working as a bridal stylist in a small boutique in Brisbane. I fell in love with the dresses, atmosphere, the people and the experience itself. However, I noticed a lot of what was out there looked similar across the stores, there wasn't a lot of options for the "unconventional" brides. Looking back to when I bought my own dress in 2005, the options weren't much different then and the experiences I had...well let's just say I felt out of place, underdressed, underbudgeted, and underwhelmed.
Having always had a creative flair and a desire to run my own business, I created TLBB to feel like your friend in the industry. A label and a place you could trust and be your authentic self. Where the dresses are crafted not produced, handmade from quality fabrics with the highest attention to detail.
"I would have to say the best part of my job is sharing and experiencing the excitement and joy when a bride-to-be finds her perfect dress. It is one of the most rewarding feelings and is why I love what I do. I take great pride in providing positive and happy experiences for each and every bride that chooses to shop with us" - Aleena Long
