About Us

Allie

After graduating from College of Charleston, I spent some time working and traveling in Europe. After having the privilege of soaking up the rich culture of London, Belgium, and Switzerland, I made my way back to Charleston, SC. This is where I fell into and in love with Modern Trousseau. Growing up with a mother who is a talented seamstress, I have always loved quality materials, details, and customization. It is no surprise that working for a bridal designer with the same values just felt right!

I loved getting my bridal career started at Modern Trousseau’s Charleston and Nashville flagships, and I am now privileged to continue working with brides in the beautiful New York boutique. In these two southern, but very different cities, I’ve been able to work with brides that have wonderfully vast varieties of styles. From traditional and coastal to artistic and fashion forward, my favorite part of working with brides is being able to help them hone in on the look that is truest to themselves and give them an incredible gown shopping experience.

 

Who is your style icon?

Reese Witherspoon. She keeps it classy, simple & southern. Always true to her roots with a twist of chic!

 

What is your favorite wedding dress trend?

I will always love a traditional look with that one “wow” factor that is specific to the bride, whatever that may be!

My first exposure to fashion was in 2014 when Callie Tein spoke to my High School about career opportunities in the industry. It was my good fortune that Modern Trousseau was open to an internship at that time. I was delighted that Callie selected me for the position. I have worked for Modern Trousseau ever since at their headquarters in Woodbridge, CT and in the New York and New Haven flagship stores. I am directly involved in the complete range of creating and selling a dress. I love all aspects of bridal and am currently getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Fashion Design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY.

 

Favorite Way to Spend Free Time?

Having a snack break with friends while sewing in the studio.

 

Favorite Wedding Dress Trend?

Lace is always in! With so many lace patterns and so many ways to use it, every dress can be so unique.

 

The best thing about working in bridal?

“Happy Tears”… when a bride finds the dress made perfect with the perfect veil.
