We shed a few tears last year when we heard the news that the Melissa Sweet bridal line and the Priscilla of Boston collection were closing up shop. But our eyes quickly dried when we got wind of an exciting new line: TULLE New York.

The designer behind the recently launched label is no other than Lia McNairy, who designed the now defunct (sniffle, sniffle) Melissa Sweet label for eight and a half years. When the POB group shut their doors, rather than throwing in her sketch pad, McNairy decided to launch her own label, TULLE, with her long time design partner Antonio Gual.
And here’s the good news for local brides: Hilary Anderson and Justin Goodson, owners of Salt Lake City boutique Alta Moda Bridal, acquired the TULLE collection at last season’s bridal market. The gowns will be available at Alta Moda later this winter or in early spring.

We sat down with Anderson to learn more about TULLE and get the scoop on which gowns we can expect to see hanging on the Alta Moda racks in the coming months.
SLPCBG: Why did you decide to bring TULLE to Alta Moda?
Anderson: The design team has a proven and impressive history. Combine that with a great fit, and I was sold.
SLPCBG: What type of bride do you envision wearing TULLE?
Anderson: The TULLE bride is fashionable and feminine. I picture her getting married in a warm field or an intriguing garden.
SLPCBG: What is the price range of TULLE gowns?
Anderson: TULLE gowns range from $2,500-$4,800
SLPCBG: Which TULLE gowns will you carry at Alta Moda?
Anderson: Initially, we will carry Lucy, Charlotte, and Daisy. [All pictured in this post] More styles to follow.
SLPCBG: Do you have a favorite TULLE gown?
Anderson: Charlotte is my (current) favorite from TULLE because of her softness and low-back drama. [Pictured below]
