Last weekend I attended the Bridal Spectacular and had the opportunity to hear Randy Fenoli speak. Randy Fenoli, Fashion Director at Kleinfeld New York and breakout star of TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress", brings over 15 years of experience to bridal fashion. He's known for his style, class, and the ability to look at a bride and almost immediately pull the right dress. My mother and I have spent many a Friday night watching him together, getting a kick out of him! I was only sorry that she did not join me at the show.
As I sat in and listened to Randy speak about his early years growing up on a farm through his time as a costume designer and, later, a bridal atelier, fashion director, and now author, I was struck by more than his knowledge (vast) and how impeccably dressed he was (flawless - Note how his socks match his pocket square!)...What really impressed me what the passion he has for dressing brides and his complete, unshakable belief that there is something beautiful in every woman. Randy will soon publish his first book "It's All About the Dress" and was kind enough to preview some of his rules for wedding dress shopping, brought to life with a photos of real brides he has worked with in the past. I don't want to ruin the reveal later, and so I won't publish the photos here, but I will say this...
I Am A Fan! Thank You Randy Fenoli for making the trip to Las Vegas. You are a True Gentleman!
ps ~ My mother loved the signed photo! Thank you.
