In the spring of 2010, then bride-to-be, Alisa Kotlyar, was seeking out a veil to accessorize her gorgeous wedding gown. After searching high and low, Alisa literally took matters into her own hands. She created her own veil; elbow-length with hand-sewn appliqués and lithe glimmer tulle. Needless to say, she looked stunning on her special day wearing her own hand-crafted veil.


Ironically, while Alisa was planning her wedding, she was also exploring new opportunities after leaving a merchandizing position at a large national retail chain. Backed by the encouragement of family and friends, Alisa ventured into the bridal accessory design world where she is now making her mark thanks to the fashion design training she received at the Fashion Institute of Technology, from where she holds a bachelor's degree.
