Heirloom Custom Bridal
Hannah has had one dream since childhood: to be a fashion designer. While not exactly sure what she would design, she knew that she wanted to create clothes that make women feel marvelous and confident in their own skin. She wanted to construct beautiful clothing that allows other women to express themselves. By following her passion, she would allow other women to do the same.
The youngest of four children, Hannah was certainly gifted with the creative gene in the family. Helping her mother sew elaborate costumes for dance competitions, sporting bold style choices in a less-than-avant-garde high school — she never hesitated to stand out from the crowd. After studying fashion design at the University of Texas in Austin, she worked in the industry to gain experience in designing and manufacturing clothes for a high-end brand. But she knew that her true mission awaited for her elsewhere.
Hannah now owns Honeysuckle, a brand for new moms, and Heirloom, a custom bridal company. She continues to be uplifted by the each and every woman she gets to work with.
What do you consider your style to be? I love that my style is completely controlled by my mood! I have an ecclectic style that ranges from classic, to modern, to vintage, to Southern belle, to bohemian, to funky, and to eveything in between. My work reflects these changes in my style, and I love that I am able to work with brides of all types!
What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with? I love couples (and specifically brides) who are completely smitten and in love, who have had a vision of their wedding gown their entire life, are open to ideas, and want the dress to be the pinnacle point of the wedding day.
How did you get started in the wedding industry? I always knew I would end up in bridal from the time I was a little girl. When I envisioned or (attempted) to draw dresses, they were always elegant evening or wedding gowns. Whilst getting my Apparel Design degree, we were required to make a showstopper wedding gown for our final runway show. I enjoyed EVERY second of it, and watching my model walk down in my creation made me never want to stop.
Where do you find your design inspiration? I find my inspiration all around me!
