“Monique Lhuillier designs capture the essence of sophisticated luxury by provoking femininity, allure and glamour that have made her renowned in the world of design.
Monique’s love for fashion has been a lifelong passion. Growing up in the Philippines, Monique’s early experiences with fashion took place alongside her mother whose own sense of personal style and elegance were major influences for the designer. Enamored by fashion, Monique was encouraged to pursue her dream of becoming a designer.
The delightful fantasy of special occasions, especially weddings, has always inspired Monique Lhuillier. In 1996, Monique debuted her first bridal collection to acclaim from retailers and magazine editors. The following year her husband, Tom, joined the company as CEO and turned Monique’s vision of a couture design house into reality. Their partnership has grown the business into one of the most successful brands internationally which now includes a ready-to-wear collection and an array of licensed categories."
