Lhuillier and husband, Tom Bugbee, founded her eponymous company in 1996
by launching their first bridal collection. In 2002, the ready to wear
and eveningwear division was launched. With both lines thriving, Monique
Lhuillier has become one of the leading innovative fashion houses in terms
of design, quality and brand image.
Over the course of the last decade, Monique Lhuillier's designs have
graced the wedding aisle of some of Hollywood's most famous brides. Other
fans of her ready-to-wear line include actresses such as Reese Witherspoon,
Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Alba. With a passion for creating gowns
that are both feminine and modern, Monique Lhuillier continues to design
collections that are luxurious, chic and true to her aesthetic.
