Amy Kuschel Comes to Belltown Bride
By Laura Cassidy
San Francisco-based wedding dress designer Amy Kuschel got into the wedding business the way a lot of women got into the wedding business: After her own engagement and celebration, and because she saw an opportunity—or perhaps better yet, a need.
For Kuschel—you probably guessed this coming—it was all about the dress. As described on the designer’s site, “she wanted to look elegant and modern without spending a fortune.”
I can just hear a city’s worth of brides saying,”Me, too!”
Amy Kuschel dresses are made by hand in San Francisco with couture details and high-quality fabrics, and most styles are in the $1,500 to $2,500 range.
You’ll find these chic and affordable dresses at Melissa Albert’s Belltown Bride, and—this is a big deal, friends—on Friday May 2 and Saturday May 3, you’ll find Kuschel herself in the shop.
That’s a rare treat. Kuschel has been designing dresses and running her business since 1999 and she doesn’t often make it out of SF to attend trunk shows. Belltown Bride carries a beautiful selection of Kuschel dresses on a regular basis, but the designer will bring more styles with her for this visit. The trunk show continues on Sunday May 3, but Kuschel herself will not be in attendance.
A limited number of appointments are available; call the shop to reserve your spot.
