Our FOUNDER + DESIGNER
Rebecca Schoneveld is an American designer of timeless luxury women’s apparel.
A native of California and educated at New York City’s Fashion Institute of Technology, Rebecca is an independent leader in the bridal world. She is respected for her innovation and advocacy toward a more creative, inclusive, and sustainable approach to wedding fashion.
Born as the fourth child of five to an immigrant father and sixth-generation Californian mother, Schoneveld’s designs convey her intuitive sense of spirited individuality and pioneer thinking. Rebecca began learning to sew dresses at the age of four and earned her first design position in NYC at the age of 17.
She studied ballet on scholarship throughout her youth, which directly influenced her appreciation of movement, form, and discipline. Having a life-long fascination with the history and culture of clothing, she spent her teenage weekends scouring thrift stores for flawed vintage gems which she often transformed into one-of-a-kind pieces. From these roots she has grown her internationally recognized brand.
Rebecca Schoneveld firmly believes that beautiful clothing should be created intentionally. Our purpose lies in the joy of shared artistry, in the appreciation of craftsmanship, and in the celebration of our clients.
Rebecca's designs focus on high-quality materials, carefully studied proportions and female-empowering shapes. Pushing against the cultural norms of traditional luxury labels, the Schoneveld brand aims to be welcoming, accessible, non-judgmental, warm, and uplifting.
Our specialty is working with each client to give them exactly what they are seeking, whether that means switching skirt shapes, changing fabrications, or adding a custom sleeve.
Our approach to custom design is refreshingly simple and easy to understand. For over 10 years, Rebecca has been developing a library of beautifully proportioned shapes and luxurious fabrics, all of which can be combined in endless possibilities. Within this library, we are able to skillfully create unique variations of design, tailored specifically for each client -- no matter their size, age, or style preference.
We take great joy in designing romantic, dimensional collections that are beautifully suited to an array of individuals. Of course, many of our clients order designs just as they are originally presented. However, as no two people are the same, we also believe no two garments need to be the same.
