bridal stylist + designer
My passion for bridal started when I landed a job working as a stylist for a small bridal boutique in Brisbane. After a short time of being there I took on the role of 2IC. I fell in love with the dresses, atmosphere, the people and the experience itself. However, the longer I worked in the industry, exploring what was out there, I noticed it all kind of looked the same.
Being limited to what's "in fashion" and not being able to find something that represents you as an individual is disheartening. I think back to my own bridal shopping experience (in 2005) and can remember feeling like there was nothing that was really me, so I chose what I thought was the best out of the bunch. My experience bridal shopping was memorable for all the wrong reasons, I felt out of place, underdressed, underbudgeted, and underwhelmed.
Having always had a creative flair and experience in business, I created TLBB for brides to feel like they have a friend in the industry. A label and a place you can trust and be yourself. Where you can find something a little different or choose to create you very own look.
"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 design. 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
