This being our first year in business, we’ve been enjoying chatting with our designers before hosting trunk shows. This weekend, April 1st and 2nd we’ll be hosting our first Aria trunk show. Creator and designer of Aria is Tak Hau. Tak has been designing formalwear for over 15 years. He first started designing at age 14. “My first client was my little sister.” Being the adoring big brother that he is, Tak didn’t charge her. (wink wink).
All Aria’s designs are made here in the U.S.A. Tak designs and makes his gowns in Los Angeles. When asked, why it is important to make his gowns in the U.S.? Tak responded, “Better access to quality control, quicker turn-around, and we certainly can use the jobs here in the USA!” So true! How are you able to produce in the U.S. and retail your dresses at such reasonable prices? “Since our dresses are made here is the USA, we save money on oversea shipping cost, import duty and such. At Aria, we want to offer our brides affordable gowns without sacrificing the high quality that customers have come to expect form us.” Aria gowns range from $900 to $2000. Come see Tak’s gorgeous gowns this Friday and Saturday at Something Bridal!
