Beverley Borelli of Siri creates dresses for bridesmaids who “don’t want to look like a bridesmaid”. Siri is recognized as the first in the industry to make short dresses popular for bridesmaids.  It started with the classic Hepburn dress, taken from the special occasion line; then the Strapless Hepburn, a strapless tea-length sheath with a bow-sash at the waist; followed by their Tiffany Breakfast dress, a strapless, below-the-knee A-line with a bow-sash at the waist…now a quite popular style. Ultimately, Siri has become known for truly wear-again, fashionable bridesmaid dresses, and has since expanded her line to include wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses as well as special occasion dresses.

 

 

1. Three adjectives to describe my design aesthetic…

Contemporary, Timeless, Quality

2. When I was a child…

I didn’t have specific aspirations of want I wanted to become but I did love coloring and creating dresses for my dolls.  It was in my teens I thought I may possibly be involved in the fashion industry.

3. The moment I knew I wanted to design dresses was

in high school for myself and friends; professionally when living in Italy and working with a fabric designer

4. The celebrity I would most like to dress for her wedding is…

Anne Hathaway. She has a very confident presence, a beautiful, classic look.

5. My favorite wedding dress of all time is…

my own, it’s sentimental

6. In 50 years I imagine bridesmaids to be wearing...

their own choice of dress no matter what color or style…but I still think there will be bridesmaids in the wedding.

7. The most romantic song of all time is…

When I Fall in Love” (Nat King Cole).  This is not a perfect wedding song since this song waits until the other also falls in love but truly a romantic love song.  The perfect wedding song is “Our Love is Here to Stay“.

8. My favorite trend in weddings this year is...

illusion necklines; finally not strapless!

9. When a bride chooses a dress for her maids, the three things she should be thinking about are..

the color she wants, the style of the wedding and venue, her bridesmaids’ body types.

dreaming of the perfect place this dress could be worn or the ideal person the style that the dress portrays.

Rotunda, Sinfonia Bridal Gown
