Welcome to Bridal Fashion Week 2017! For anyone who keeps up with that matrimony couture, you鈥檝e probably heard of designer Hayley Paige. Or if you鈥檙e scanning Pinterest, you鈥檝e no doubt encountered the California native鈥檚 feminine-yet-edgy designs.

We caught up with Paige at her design studio in the Garment District of NYC where the magic happens鈥 for real! And she didn鈥檛 just tease what her upcoming collection was going to look like 鈥 she showed us ACTUAL dresses that are going to be on the runway of her Pre-Fall 2017 show on April 21.

She also chatted about her inspo, how she came to be a wedding dress designer (it鈥檚 a funny story actually), and even introduced us to the Hayley Paige company mascot (Hi, Vivian!). Check it all out below:
