Beauty by Design is a positive solution to an ethical dilemma. The owner and founder, Deborah Block, saw the need in the bridal industry for sustainable options and had a vision for a bridal salon that offers dresses that are handmade and unique. Today there are many places to shop for a wedding gown, but few have options to purchase one which is made ethically. As a designer herself, Deborah wants to support other designers who make their dresses in-house or use fair trade suppliers.

All of the products at Beauty by Design are individually handmade and most are made with sustainable or natural materials. We have traveled across the US and Canada to personally meet the designers we feature and to see where our products are made. This ensures that you are receiving a garment that meets our high standards of quality. In addition to bridal wear, formal wear, jewelry, accessories and full-service alterations, Beauty by Design offers the option to fully customize your dress with unique designs and custom tailoring. 

Our Mission Statement

The mission of Beauty by Design is to lead the bridal wear industry to more sustainable options and overall quality service to our customers.

We seek to spread awareness of the positive impact of socially conscious shopping by providing our community with quality products and comprehensive services at attainable prices, while maintaining a successful business model and training our staff in best practices to continuously grow the company.
