About David Tutera for Mon CheriMon Cheri Bridals LLC was formed in July of 1991. CEO, Stephen Lang’s goals for Mon Cheri were to excel as a leading bridal gown and wedding dress manufacturer by not only providing quality products but also through exceptional customer relations. Wedding dresses were only the beginning for Mon Cheri; today, the company produces over twenty branded special occasion product lines worldwide.
Mon Cheri has been a leader in the bridal and special occasion industries since the beginning. A unique feature that gave Mon Cheri a competitive edge early on was the use of color on traditional bridal gowns. Mon Cheri’s introduction of the colors Rum Pink, Blush and Café quickly caught on in the marketplace, inspiring numerous other manufacturers to add color to their own bridal collections.
In 1997, Stephen saw a need in the marketplace for mother of the bride/mother of the groom dress suits, cocktail dresses, ball gowns, formal dresses and special occasion gowns. Montage by Mon Cheri was introduced, raising the standard for quality, style and value in special occasion dresses. Both Montage and Montage Boutique collections have proven to be very successful and have won numerous awards. Designer Ivonne Dome joined Mon Cheri as special occasion designer for Montage, Social Occasions by Mon Cheri, Cameron Blake, and Destinations.
In the Spring 2001 season, Le Gala and Cameron Blake, were introduced. Le Gala fulfills the needs of the young girl with its trendy prom dresses and flirty special occasion dresses while Cameron Blake appeals to women of a mature age who still demand style and grace in their wardrobes. The Destinations by Mon Cheri collection was introduced into the marketplace for the Fall 2003 season, offering informal wedding dresses for brides marrying away from home.
In the Fall of 2003, Mon Cheri created the private label wedding dress and bridal gown collection 2be Bride. Only available in select bridal salons, 2be Bride has become a coveted, sought-after wedding dress brand for both brides and bridal salons alike. The 2be Bride collection has been featured on numerous television programs, including the premiere episode of TLC’s, “Say Yes to the Dress.” 2be Social was introduced in Spring 2008 as a private label bridesmaid dress and special occasion dress collection. Available in true, ready-to-wear sizes, every 2be Social style is available in tea and full length.
Mon Cheri continues to introduce new and exciting products. Three new collections were added in the Spring 2005 season: Cheri by Mon Cheri, Paris, and the James Clifford Collection. Paris’ sleek prom dresses and modern special occasion dresses are designed with attitude and sensuality. The James Clifford Collection and JCH Collection are designed by the legendary James Clifford. A leader in the bridal fashion for decades, James has brought romance back to the couture bridal industry. And new for Spring 2008, the James Clifford Black Label Collection is making quite an impression on the special occasion industry. Coordinating the bridal party is effortless with this collection of elegant and figure-flattering bridesmaids’ dresses available in true, ready-to-wear sizes 0 – 28.
The Fall 2005 season brought a couture mother of the bride/groom and evening wear collection, Rina di Montella, and a pageant and couture evening dress collection, Tony Bowls Collection. Talented designer Tony Bowls is now also the designer of Le Gala, Paris, Tony Bowls Evenings, Tony Bowls Limited, Tony Bowls Shorts, and Tony B. for 2be.
2007 introduced even more exciting new collections including Rina di Montella bridal and the groundbreaking bridal gown collection, Sophia Tolli. After many successful years in the special occasion fashion industry, Rina di Montella premiered her first couture bridal gown collection, Rina di Montella bridal. European-inspired designs in luxurious fabrics have made this line a huge success. After ten years as Head Designer at Maggie Sottero, Sophia Apostolides created a new bridal collection, Sophia Tolli. With its unparalleled craftsmanship and exceptional fit, the Sophia Tolli collection provides an array of gorgeous, show-stopping bridal gowns and wedding dresses.
2009 has been was an exciting year for Mon Cheri. Famed children’s designer Joan Calabrese joined Mon Cheri with her well-known design techniques. Using the best fabrics and fashionably styling, Joan has created a children’s line for any occasion. She will be expanding Joan Calabrese for Mon Cheri into the baby and tween markets in the upcoming seasons. Also in 2009, Ivonnne Dome created the Capri by Mon Cheri collection. Capri by Mon Cheri introduced a variety of silhouettes in unique burnout and tonal fabrics. With carefully designed styles and the option of jackets or sleeves with every dress, Capri by Mon Cheri flatters all shapes. Sophia Tolli brought a new collection to Mon Cheri in 2009.
