How Monique Lhuillier Wedding Dresses Woos Brides and Celebrities? 

Monique Lhuillier Wedding Dresses were first debuted in this global award-winning born-to-be designer's 1996 collection.

Influenced by her children's wear designer mother in Philippines, she developed her hollywood trendsetting design talents during her Design and Merchandising studies in Los Angeles while preparing for her own wedding.  

With her sophisticated luxurious and glamourous special occasion designs Monique has been able to fill a great void in the global bridal gown market. Her fanciful and super elegant gowns provoke femininity and charming allure.

No wonder why red carpet celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Ginnifer Goodwin and many more can't get enough of her whimsical and ravishing bridal and ready-to-wear cocktail designs.

Next to enjoying her motherhood, this petite but yet grand leading fashion designer produces more than 4 collections a year: bridal, ready-to-wear, exclusive tabletop, stationary, jewelry collaborations and shoes.
