Mikaella is the sister collection of the renowned designer, Paloma Blanca. Paloma Blanca was founded in 1937 by Manny Bernstein, and then taken over by his youngest brother, Harry. The company is based in Toronto, Canada, and is now made up of 150 individuals, including wedding gown designers, sewers, cutters, hand beaders, finishers and more. They started with evening wear, and in the 1970s, found their way to the wedding gown industry, and for that, we and many brides around the world are forever grateful!
Today, Mikaella remains in the Bernstein family.
The Wedding Gowns
Mikaella’s amazing designers never stop studying the latest fashion trends while staying true to the quality they are renowned for. Mikaella wedding gowns capture a classic and timeless look that appeals to both modern and traditional brides–old Hollywood glamour meets contemporary design. The dresses are meticulously crafted from the highest quality fabrics like Italian tulle or their signature Mikaella lace. All the embellishments and beading are hand-sewn with the utmost care.
“We are passionate about the art of dressmaking. And it shows. Every Paloma Blanca bridal gown made is deeply important to us and this is why we dedicate all our efforts and talent into design and quality. By creating and producing all of our bridal gowns in our manufacturing centre in Toronto, Canada, we are easily able to conduct the quality control checks necessary to ensure every dress is finished impeccably, tastefully and to perfection.
“Our passion for dressmaking has lasted nearly a century, and we look forward to many more years of designing, producing and delivering high-quality, fashion-forward bridal gowns.”
