We’re taken with the you-won’t-see-it-everywhere-else glamour of bridal gowns by Russian Hill designer and Atelier Des Modistes boutique owner Suzanne Hanley, whose one-of-a-kind gowns are constructed of Italian silk satins and shantungs and embellished with vintage French trims and bead work featuring precious and semi-precious stones.
If you’re headed down the aisle and Hanley’s style appeals, make haste: this weekend is the Hyde Street bridal shop’s annual sample sale. What’s it to you? Up to 75 percent off gowns, veils, headpieces and bridal jewelery. Prices start at $500.
Feel free to swing by and peruse, but call ahead if you’ve got designs on the dressing room, as try-ons are done by appointment.
