Maggie Sottero announced the addition of new design talent to its bridal design team.

Patricia DeLaunay joins as the brand’s first Global Sustainability Director/Designer, contributing twenty years of design expertise to the team.

An Otis College of Art and Design Fashion graduate, Patricia has spearheaded the company's sustainability initiatives, including the 2024 mentorship program, in collaboration with her alma mater. Impassioned by sustainable fashion's future, Patricia shared her vision upon joining the team: "It's an honor to bring my sustainable design experience and love for bridal fashion to a brand prioritizing its environmental sustainability efforts."

In tandem with this development, Maggie Sottero also welcomed Mark and Chris Russell, who bring over two decades of unparalleled experience in bridal fashion to our esteemed design team.

Drawing inspiration from the timeless lines and exquisite proportions of neoclassical art and architecture, their creations showcase elegant silhouettes adorned with intricate details that enhance the wearer's figure and gracefully contour and elongate the body.

Upon joining the team, Mark and Chris expressed their enthusiasm: "We are thrilled to infuse Maggie Sottero with our distinctive design aesthetic, contributing to the enduring legacy of this beloved heritage brand."

Patricia, Mark, and Chris join forces with Maggie's accomplished Lead Designer, Edric Woo, operating under the guidance of CEO and Creative Director Kelly Midgley and a team of exceptionally talented design assistants.

Reflecting on this exciting collaboration, Midgley remarked, "As we embark on this thrilling chapter with the addition of Mark and Chris Russell, seasoned visionaries, and the insightful leadership and creativity of Patricia DeLaunay, Maggie Sottero continues to set new standards in design innovation and environmental responsibility. Their collective expertise, passion, and commitment align seamlessly with our brand's legacy, promising a future where elegance, sustainability, and innovation intertwine."
