Monique Lhuillier is known for her wearable couture collections that capture the essence of allure and glamour. The designer was inspired by her childhood growing up in the Philippines, surrounded by her stylish and elegant mother. After finishing her education at the Fashion Institute for Design, Lhuillier presented her first bridal collection in 1996, and was inducted into the CFDA soon after. Her label is known for its exquisitely detailed bridal and occasionwear and has recently expanded its collection to include ready-to-wear. The brand's belt collection includes styles detailed with delicate, shimmering beading and sequins to silk-grosgrain bow belts for a romantic, elegant look.
