Among the gems are Mara Hoffman’s first-ever ready-to-wear bridal dresses, including a hand-beaded, Grecian goddess-inspired gown that Wojner says “should be displayed in a museum.” Till now, Hoffman’s bridal services were reserved only for very close friends, such as fellow designer Pamela Love. Made to order in New York City, each piece is special in more ways than one. “I like to give each creation a blessing and prayer for a life of happiness and love,” she says.
Samantha Pleet’s ivory-silk “Tabernacle” dress, which includes a series of twisted midriff cutouts as an unexpected—yet wholly welcome—detail.

Samantha Pleet’s ivory-silk “Tabernacle” dress, which includes a series of twisted midriff cutouts as an unexpected—yet wholly welcome—detail. “Your wedding is the most magical of days,” the Brooklyn designer says. “It’s only fitting that this epic store is offering such mythic dresses.”
For Unearthen’s Gia Bahm, her partnership with Bona Drag led her to create the “Crown” heirloom ring set, a pair of bands that can be worn together or separately on each partner’s hand. Instead of diamonds, she used a mix of clear quartz, moonstone, and sapphire crystals. “I’ve always wanted to do some sort of commitment ring, and it’s an honor to be included,” Bahm says. “I am so excited for all of the pieces in this collection.”
