At her new custom frock workshop, WEDDING DRESS 101, designer Trish Lee decodes the dress.
This spring, the designer will share her savvy workshop, Trish Lee’s Wedding Dress 101 ($50) held at her Union Square design studio. Those who reserve a spot will be privy to Lee’s expertise, like learning the difference between trumpet and mermaid silhouettes (and which is more flattering), what is the highest-quality lace, and what goes into the making of a $3000 bespoke gown that gives it superiority to an altered, off-the-rack creation. “So often,” Lee says, “the cost of a gown goes toward distribution and other fees, rather than the construction and quality of the dress itself.” As for the insider tip, well, it’s priceless. RSVP or call 415-562-6553.
