Bachelorette Desirée Hartsock has kept a relatively low profile since welcoming her first baby with hubby Chris Siegfried last year, but now, the reality TV alum is back in the spotlight to unveil an exciting new project: her very own bridal line!
Dubbed Desirée Hartsock Bridal, the line’s debut Dreamcatcher collection is full of “free-spirited and inspired bridal styles for the modern bride” (read: boho chic to the max), and will be available at select stockists as of January 2018.
As the designer told PeopleStyle, each of her 21 gowns has its own unique “elements of surprise,” from bell sleeves to exquisitely embroidered backs. Most exciting of all, however, may just be the fact that all of them will be seriously affordable, ranging from $1,300 to $3,200.
In fact, being budget-friendly was one of the 31-year-old’s main goals. As she explained to the outlet, “My whole goal is to be affordable. Rather than spending a fortune on a gown you’ll only wear once, the designer wants to encourage her brides to “build your life together with that money [instead]!” Working in bridal, I’ve seen it all, and I want to be accessible and affordable so it’s actually reachable for brides,” she said.
The former Bachelorette got her start in fashion at LA’s Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and has been working in the bridal world since she was just 19. In 2015, she designed a capsule wedding dress collection for Maggie Sottero.
Now, with the support of her family and friends, she’s striking out on her own. Taking to Instagram, she thanked her loved ones, saying, “It was my mom who taught me to sew and my sweet hubby and friends who kept inspiring and pushing me to do what I love. I wouldn’t be here without those who believed and supported.”
