Get To Know: Martha Suarez

Hi Martha!

Tell us about your brand and your business model.

Our brand is focusing on a new and growing side of the bridal industry. Designing couture wedding dresses for daring and bold brides who want other options than a white dress; dresses that tell a story and can be worn again.  After all you are buying a couture dress.

 

What drove you to start your own label? And what have you enjoyed the most so far?

I’ve worked in the industry for over 12 yrs and I knew I always wanted to have my own brand.  The key was to find something that could set me apart from what every designer was making and something that I loved.  Personal experience has inspired my brand concept.  I got married at a very young age and after a couple of years I was divorced.  A few years later, I met the love of my life and I knew that this time I wanted to do everything on my terms, including my wedding dress. I did not want to wear another white dress and I wanted to make a statement.  I have enjoyed the process and conceptualizing each dress.

What are one or two big goals you’re focusing on in the next 6 months?

My goal is to send out look books and start getting orders! I also want to focus on growing my Instagram and getting more exposure for my line.
