In the endless choices of the bridal and prom industry, one company is revolutionizing the way to find your perfect dress. No matter your style or body type, Dress Haute is the go-to brand for loving how you look on your special day.

“We’re embracing your beauty with one of our gowns,” Dress Haute founder Carrie Ann Lehrman said.

Carrie Ann’s journey to becoming a designer was spurred in part by her difficulties in finding the perfect wedding dress. Originally the owner of a dress shop that sold other company’s designs, Carrie Ann realized she wanted to create her own products to help people connect with the right dress and take the stress out of the search.

Dress Haute was born, offering custom styles and fits for special occasion dresses. Dress Haute’s revolutionary approach is illustrated by the special attention it gives to creating custom fit dresses. Not only does Dress Haute provide dresses for every style and body type, it also helps those customers who wish to create a personalized gown. Anyone can go into Dress Haute and design their own dress, with guidance from Carrie Ann.

“Since creating Dress Haute in 2015, Carrie Ann has had great success,” the company says. “She designed and created her first collection, then presented it at Pittsburgh Fashion Week. In addition, she has showcased her lines at New York Fashion Week several times, and will be returning this February to show her new Fall/Winter 2019 collection.”

There is a lot of skill and craft that goes into creating custom gowns with intricate designs, and the task is made more difficult when the dresses must fit people perfectly. But that is exactly what Dress Haute has done.

“I’ve always had the ability to be able to look at something or look at somebody and be able to dress them,” Carrie Ann said.

When they walk into Dress Haute, all customers - tall, short, slim, curvy - get help finding a style that fits their personality and figure. If they cannot find what they want, Dress Haute will help design and produce the dress of their dreams.

“Have you ever had a vision of a dress that doesn’t exist? Dress Haute can make that dream dress come true,” according to dresshaute.com. “We specialize in designing that original and one of a kind dress. Our goal is to make everyone feel beautiful and enjoy their custom experience from start to finish.”

Regardless of customization, Dress Haute dresses are unique, as the store carries only its own line and, when it sells dresses off the rack, they are generally not replaced, Carrie Ann said.

“If you want something different, if you want something unique and one-of-a-kind, then I’m the bridal shop for you, I’m the prom dress place for you,” Carrie Ann said. “And knowing that you have a one-of-a-kind gown that nobody else has, that’s a great feeling because you certainly don’t want to show up in the same dress at the prom that another girl has.”

Dress Haute will help you through alterations and any other needs you have for your dress. It also dresses bridesmaids and mothers of brides and grooms, so they feel comfortable and beautiful on their loved one’s wedding day. Carrie Ann was recently nominated for Designer of the Year by Art and Beauty Magazine in New York, as well as in Glam in Pittsburgh.

Dress Haute designs are available in store in the Pittsburgh area, online, and in stores throughout the country. You can also call to order a dress of your own design. For more information, visit dresshaute.com.
