Originally known as A & M Rosenthal, The Dessy Group was founded in 1939 in New York City. Early on in the company’s history, designer and founder Margot Rosenthal’s veil and attendant’s headpieces were featured in a 1949 edition of Modern Bride magazine, the cover picture shot in the Plaza Hotel in New York City. Shortly after that, Margot Rosenthal’s daughter, Ronnie, and Margot’s daughter’s husband took over the company in 1950. Ronnie and her husband added bridesmaid dresses to the Dessy collection.
The Dessy Group is known for carrying dresses created by top designers, but also carries its own line of beautiful bridesmaid dresses. Vivian Diamond, granddaughter to Margot Rosenthal, is the lead designer for the Dessy Bridesmaid Collection. This line of dresses is the showcase line of bridesmaid dresses offered by The Dessy Group.
Bridesmaid dresses in the Dessy line are upscale and modern, but won’t break the bank. Vivian Diamond designs these dresses with excellence in mind and uses only premium fabrics. The dresses are made with fabrics such as tulle, chiffon, silk, and marquis lace.
In addition to using quality fabric, Dessy dresses are decorated with beautifully unique details as well. Some of the dresses are designed with full-length removable chiffon overskirts, intricate bead work on illusion necklines, fleur lace appliqués, and pretty sashes to tie around the waist.
These dresses come in a variety of silhouettes, necklines, and sleeve options. Some of the silhouettes include trumpet, draped skirts, tea length, full length, and drop waist full-length dresses. The necklines come in sweetheart, one shoulder, v-neck, and halter to name a few. The sleeve options are sleeveless, strapless, and spaghetti strap.
The color selection is huge and most dresses come in a variety of colors. The sizing of these dresses ranges from 00 to 30W. The Dessy line also includes maternity dresses.
If a bride is looking for an upscale, modern, reasonably priced bridesmaid look, then the Dessy Collection is a good place to start!
