Q&A with Tara LaTour

Tell us about the vision for your brand?
When creating the brand, I set out to create a brand where modern ideas meet the romanticism of the past, both aesthetically and ideologically. I design using modern silhouettes that have vintage inspired and hand crafted detailing, all while using the finest fabrics. I also believe in local and true craftsmanship, which is why a 100% of our gowns are made in the US.

Where did you receive your fashion education?
I received my education and degree from Parsons School of Design in New York, NY.

Why Bridal?
I love bridal; I always have. I think there is something spectacular about dressing a woman for such a marked occasion. I believe the biggest impact for me was in childhood when I used to watch my grandmother make wedding gowns. I would always play with scraps of the fabric and could help but thinking how magical it all was.

You work a lot with color. Why?
History shows us that wearing white is a relatively new concept. It started as a trend in 1850 when Queen Victoria got married. It was this event that was a catalyst for what we see as the white dress today. Not to mention, we love to celebrate women that see themselves as brides in all colors and shades.

What inspires you most?
My inspiration is ever-changing. However, my family and nature’s landscapes tend to be a common thread that runs through everything I design. Those are the two things that continue to inspire me time and time again.

What are 3 things about you that not a lot of people know?
I have a tiny and adorable fur kiddo named Pippa! I am addicted to Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers! I geek out big time about music and dance.
