The MERA Collection features a traditional styling with a distinctly modern flair.
MERA strives to give each bride the experience of
creating a unique gown by offering a variety of fabrics-- from a beautiful quality
polyester to the luxurious silk peau de soie. In addition, there is a wide range of
elegant colors; snow white, creamy ivory, pale blush pink or delicate platinum. Minor
design changes (such as raising or lowering a neckline or adding a sleeve) are also
available. Brides may also choose a semi-custom gown, such as combining a skirt and bodice
from different MERA designs. This system of "design flexibility" allows brides
to tailor their gowns to suit their individual tastes.
The MERA Collection is currently available in selected areas on an exclusive basis.
After several years in the fabric industry, Valeries client base had grown to lead her into her own business of custom bridal and attendants gowns. While continuing with her private clients, she also took a position with an established bridal salon to become familiar with the ready-to-wear bridal industry. This allowed her to directly interact with a variety of brides, as well as gain a better understanding of a retailers needs from a manufacturer. Based on this knowledge and experience, MERA by Valerie Michelle was created.
