Best Custom-Made Gowns - 2001
The elegant owner of BLUE, proudly flipping through her scrapbook, points to a young lady in a surpassingly shapely wedding gown and jokes, "I get the prettiest girls." More like the prettiest girls get Blue, for eight years a source of clever and classic bridal creations, bridesmaid dresses, and cocktail and ball gowns. The sample rack, despite its ragged hems and unfinished seams, buckles with the weight of silk mikado, silk chiffon, and duchess satinall modeled into splendid silhouettes. That Vera Wang lady should watch her back.
