Monique Lhuillier and her husband started Monique’s design company in 1996. The design house, of the same name, is world renowned as one of the leading fashion houses in quality, creativity, and design. Her company is well known to many celebrities and her designs can be found around the world, though based out of Los Angeles, California. Monique has in innate sense of style that is obvious when looking at her bridal collection. Monique encompasses sophistication, luxury, femininity, appeal, and beauty in her designs and appreciates that luxury can be whimsical and full of fun elements.
Monique designs gowns that are for the more contemporary bride. The dresses are full of interesting design elements that make them really stand out. The dresses come in a variety of styles such as long and sheer to short and summery. Some of the dresses have feathers attached to the skirt, while others are more traditional with pops of whimsical details such as rosettes folded into the layers of the skirt. One design isn’t a gown at all, but rather a pantsuit with a train in the back! Some of the designs have a more vintage feel with flowing sleeves and skirts, but form fitting waists. Dresses also come in very simple designs that allow the bride to be the showcase, rather than the dress. The details are what these dresses are all about.
Some of the details that can be found on a Monique gown include beautiful lace work, sparkly beadwork, sashes worn around the waist, colored rosettes, and lace hems. The silhouettes include ball gown, layered skirts, high/low skirts, straight fit, trumpet, and tea length, not to mention the silhouettes already mentioned above.
The necklines that Monique designs are also unique. The necklines range from full coverage to plunging V, but also include unique necklines such as scoop neck and illusion necklines. A contemporary bride, not looking for a traditional dress, would be very happy shopping this line of dresses!

We love helping brides that are unsure about what kind of gown they’re looking for. We believe that a bride should shine through on her wedding day, and her dress should help her do that. Whether a bride chooses a contemporary or traditional dress, we promise to help her feel and look her best in that gown!
