For the bride who radiates confidence, global glamour and impeccable style, there’s Martina Liana — the embodiment of exquisite couture bridal design.
You can see it in the way the luxurious fabrics flow as a bride glides down the aisle. In the handcrafted fit, that accentuates a womanly form. And in the heirloom quality detailing that will leave every guest in awe – and stir the heart of a husband-to-be.
When you select a Martina Liana creation, you wear something far more than just a wedding dress. You make a statement. One that exemplifies the style, the attitude and the elegance of the bride, and the woman, you are.
"This collection brings together my passion for creating intricate, unexpected details, as well as my obsession with clean and modern silhouettes. It's a unique romantic fusion that I hope you love as much as I do."
~ Martine Harris, Head Designer
Every dress has a story. Ours starts in San Francisco, with thoughtful design and American craftsmanship. We started Amy Kuschel in 1999 with a collection of simple, elegant wedding gowns. At the time, it was hard to find elevated style that was affordable. All these years later, with plenty of hands-on dressmaking expertise and thousands of really cool brides, our goal is still the same: to create elegant dresses that are attainable and cut-to-flatter with clean, iconic lines. When you walk down the aisle in style that’s thoughtfully designed to reflect your personality, you say “I do” with grace and confidence. It’s the perfect way to start a lifelong love affair.
Robert Bullock grew up on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi giving him his southern roots. At an early age Robert possessed a strong interest in anything fashion related. With his drive and passion he truly is a self-taught designer, with skills of draping, pattern making and sewing.
He moved to Atlanta as a teen to start designing accessories and women’s ready-to-wear for local specialty boutiques. After five years, Robert relocated to New Orleans to work as head designer for a doll manufacturing company. This position gained him impeccable knowledge in mass manufacturing and overseeing production. At age 23, Robert was commissioned to build a factory from the ground up to produce children’s clothing. This proved to be highly fulfilling personally, as well as professionally.
In 1990, Robert moved to New York and launched ‘Robert Bullock Hats’. Within the first few months, not only was he featured on the cover of Woman’s Wear Daily but was also proclaimed as one of the ‘best new up and coming designers’. Robert’s millinery line sold in Barney’s (the only designer at the time allowed to sell to both main floor and Co-op), Neiman Marcus stores and select specialty stores nationwide. Shortly thereafter, Robert ventured into menswear, launching a line at Neiman Marcus stores. Frustrated by the restrictions forced by ready-to-wear, Robert started Birnbaum and Bullock in 1993, a Couture Collection of Bridal Gowns, with design partner Steven Birnbaum.
In 2009, wanting to reach a broader audience, Robert launched Robert Bullock Bride. This allowed Robert to design more gowns at an affordable price and bring joy to Brides who could not afford a Couture Gown. Without compromising style, he is able to give a Couture look with a timeless, elegant feel. Robert Bullock Bride has been his most successful venture in his career to date.
