Gretchen Dawley


We are thrilled to introduce our campers to the talented Gretchen Dawley this summer. Gretchen will be leading our Fashion Draping Workshop and sharing about her exciting career as a Bridal Designer.

Gretchen is a graduate of FIDM in Fashion Design and Business Management. She has a background in collection development, sample making, design, and the construction and fit of a garment. She started making custom wedding gowns while working her way through various design jobs in the LA fashion industry. Her love for wedding gowns and the bridal market has been her  lifelong passion and excited to say that she is currently working on her first collection of wedding gowns inspired by her affection for Havana, Cuba to debut in the fall of 2016. She is a lover of storytelling and nostalgia, she longs for a time machine to live in each era.
