Meet Britini, the fashionista behind it all....

{Tell us a little about yourself and product.}I was born and raised in Poland, Ohio. Even as a little girl, my dream was always to become a fashion designer, so when it came time to choose a career, the decision was a very easy one! I received my bachelor's degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion School at Kent State University in May of 2008. After graduating, I decided to try my hand in the corporate design world, and took a job designing for Abercrombie and Fitch. After about two and a hafl years of designing jeans and tee shirts, I decided it was time to stop putting my dream on hold. In February, I quit my job in order to pursue my life-long goal of starting my own fashion line. I chose to do bridal because of my extremely feminine aesthetic, and my love designing one-of-a-kind pieces.

BBG Couture designs and creates exclusive custom fitted dresses for special occasions. We specialize in wedding and evening gowns. The dresses are all made to order with high quality fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail. I work closely with each bride to create the perfect gown, customized from start to finish.

{When did you fall in love with fashion?}I been in love with fashion as long as I can remember! I started collecting magazine tears of celebrities on the red carpet when I was in middle school and I still reference some for inspiration today! I've been extremely blessed to know exactly what I want to do with my life and have the opportunity to try and make it happen.

{What is your #1 piece of advice for brides?}As a fashion designer, your wedding gown is the most important garment that you will ever wear and it should be a work of art. It's the one day you can get away with wearing something extraordinary-so you should!
