Jane White and Olia Zavozina – 100% Made in USA Worldclass Designers on KHON2’s Living808

Palazzo Couture by Jane White and Olia Zavozina are two of the most talented, creative bridal designers in the world. They also happen to work 100% locally to their Chicago and Nashville homes — because their dresses aren’t outsourced, this means their dresses are the highest possible quality, and they operate more sustainably. Watch the full KHON2 segment here.

Featured Designer: ellelikesrap

We love going to New York fashion week and seeing what’s new from the world’s top designers. But just as much, we love discovering small artisan designers that are reinventing style, often in their homes, at their fingertips and straight from the heart.

ellelikesrap is a Boston native who lives, works, and creates locally, with global inspiration. You can commission pieces from her – a great way to customize your thank you presents for your bridal party?

Jane White of Palazzo

Jane White, designer of Palazzo bridal, is a humble genius. When it comes to the two most important aspects of a wedding dress – look and feel – her gowns score 11 out of a possible 10 on both counts. Here’s a peak into the deceiving “simplicity” that requires the highest level of precision, which she can execute because all her gowns are hand crafted locally outside of her Chicago home. We see a lot of dresses, but these ones almost made us cry. (Update: see our Ko’olau Ballrooms Palazzo photo shoot.)
