Why We Like Them

Designer Loft NYC is like that friend of yours you’ve always admired: smart, beautiful, friendly, sincere and oh-so-stylish!

No Attitude, No pressure: From the moment a woman enters the bridal store, she’s treated with respect and courtesy, regardless of her size, taste or budget. One of Designer Loft’s recent customers revealed to us, “They really listened to what I was looking for. There was no pressure to buy the most expensive dress.” An industry professional confirms that at this NYC bridal shop, “The client is always put first, with their best interest in mind.” Brides we spoke with agree: “Even though I’m sure my dress wasn’t the biggest sale for this salon, they still treated me like a royalty!”

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful: As purveyors of superior style, you’d expect the shop itself to be attractive and it is. We heard compliments for the store’s “warm, boutique feel,” as well as their spacious dressing rooms with large mirrors. Brides also liked that the store is “clean and well organized”…the better to browse all the lovely finery!

Ahead of the Trend: This fashionable bridal shop showcases European couture designers like Cristiano Lucci and Pronovias, as well as sassy wedding dresses by Matthew Christopher and Rosa Clara’s architectural silhouettes. But brides will also find gowns by emerging bridal couture designers, including some whose collections are shown exclusively at Designer Loft. The range of unique styles means that a Designer Loft bride can make her own signature aisle statement.

All You Need is Designer Loft: The chic attire options extend to bridesmaids and MOBs, too—even flower girls! And everyone will sparkle, thanks to oodles of accessory choices, from romantic to edgy, from vintage-inspired to modern. “I didn’t want the hassle of going to another salon,” one bride told us, “I didn’t have to; the Designer Loft has everything.”

Media Darling: There’s a reason why Designer Loft is constantly featured on television programs like Platinum Weddings, David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding, The Apprentice, and Who’s Wedding is it Anyway?: They know their stuff!
