Desiree Hartsock, will join award-winning fashion designer,Maggie Sottero, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City, October 11th, as her debut wedding dress collection hits the Bridal Fashion Week runway. Fiance, Chris Siegfried, will join Desiree at the Couture Show hosted by The Knot to celebrate the launch and be on hand to talk about the couple’s upcoming wedding plans.
“I’m simply ecstatic to see this dream come true,” Desiree announced as she reviewed her collection recently in Salt Lake City. “The dresses reflect my personality – free spirited, but with a passion for glam, as seen in the soft, flowing fabrics and the Art Deco beadwork. I haven’t decided yet whether my own wedding will be in a church or outdoor setting, but I love that the dresses in my collection are perfect for either and so are the dresses I’ve designed for myself.”
Although the Bridal Fashion Week showing of the Desiree Hartsock with Maggie Sottero collection won’t include a sneak peek of the ceremony and reception gowns Desiree will wear when she and Chris tie the knot in January, modified versions will be available for order from Authorized Maggie Sottero Retailers soon after Desiree wears the originals.
Desiree is a 2006 Fashion Design graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. She currently resides in Seattle, Washington.
