The story of this world-renowned designer started about 3 decades ago in 1988 when Vantana moved to Dallas after graduating from FIDM in Los Angeles. She realized that the market was not able to give the brides and their guests what they wanted for their special occasions and weddings. She discovered there was a demand for well-designed dresses that were one-of-a-kind for those ladies who wanted to stand out from the crowd. She began with crafting one-off dresses not only for herself but also for her family and friends who were pissed off with the cookie-cutter dresses available in the stores. Soon she understood that Dallas was the ideal place to start a new business because of its southern hospitality, thriving fashion industry, and central location to Los Angeles and New York City. Before starting her company she worked at the Dallas Mart and moonlighted designing and producing bridesmaids’ dresses during nights and weekends. After designing custom bridesmaid dresses, she and her team took the next step and started selling to local bridal salons, including Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak. Their hard work paid off!
Being at the heart of the company, she passionately involved herself in setting the design tone. For Vantana “a design is where it starts, but not where it ends.” By the late 1980s, Watters was a treasured name in the bridal wear industry, thanks to hand-stitched details, luxurious fabrics, and innovative designs. Today, the Watters family is nothing but a clan of designers, pattern-makers, and seamstresses crafting dream pieces for fashionista brides and their team of beautiful ladies. On the ball, the designers at Watters know fashion and how to mold it into a modern dramatic dress that deserves only love! Watters takes pride in dressing not only brides next door but also style-influencers, celebrities, movie stars, TV actresses, and inspirational women who belong to the fashion world. The high-profile Watters brides include model Hunter McGrady and So You Think You Can Dance contestant, Allison Holker plus JoJo Fletcher of The Bachelorette wore the cross-front Micah' bridesmaid dress for a friend's wedding in the British Virgin Islands. And how can we forget the proposal moment of the model Nicole Kaspar on stage during Watters Spring 2019 Fashion Show's grand finale in New York City!

The company that started with a few handmade dresses for kith and kin now serves women worldwide. In 2017, Sydney Watters Dunbar, daughter of Vantana Watters brought her innate sense of the brand coupled with a passion to dress up the women for their red-letter day to the company as Style Director. Putting her stamp on bridal fashion, she not only helps usher in a new era of millennial-centric style but also creative marketing strategies around the use of social media. More power to her elbow!

Watters, one of the leading global fashion brands, has gifted the industry 5 brands boasting luxury bridal gowns and dresses for bridesmaids, wedding parties, and special occasions: Watters, Wtoo, Willowby (or Love Marley), Seahorse, and Encore. The success of the company’s Watters bridesmaids line led to the launch of Watters bridal line. Watters Brides is their premier brand of bridal gowns designed with elegant styling, luxurious fabrics, and intricate detailing. Then, it was a natural progression into the creation of their Wtoo bridal and bridesmaids line in 2009. Most recently, the company debuted their Willowby by Watters collection (formally known as Love Marley), which is a unique line with a vintage twist, offering fresh takes for the one-of-a-kind bride.
Watters is the company’s premier flagship brand and is best known for artful designs that personify innovation, hidden details, and craftsmanship. To this day, Watters remains a family-owned company and is led by Founder and Designer Vatana Watters, whose inspirations emanate from her world travels, experience living on both the US coasts, and her aspiration to reflect the spirit of the times. In Vantana’s words: “Inspiration is an interesting thing, as it comes from many forms and places. I’ve found inspiration in trips overseas, to the mall, or even as simple as a stroll down the street. Many dresses have found their way into collections through my recollection of details from my travels, flowers, vintage finds, fabrics, laces, embroideries and beading, books, magazines, media, and of course real brides. I’m fortunate to work with such a talented design team. We share our inspirations and many of the best ideas come from these collaborations.” To-be-brides look to Watters and its five brands to determine upcoming trends in wedding gowns.
