Vivian Dessy Diamond Memorial

Vivian Dessy Diamond, Chief Creative Officer of The Dessy Group and third generation owner of the acclaimed international bridesmaid and social occasion house, passed Wednesday, May 15.

She was 63.

For over 40 years, Vivian’s design vision and expertise were instrumental in the success of the Dessy brand, and her soft touch oversight provided stability and consistency for all Dessy divisions, including the Jenny Packham, Alfred Sung, and Lela Rose collections.

Widely recognized and admired as a talented designer whose impact helped transform and modernize the bridesmaid category and industry, she is also fondly remembered as gracious and genuine in all interactions, be they business or personal.

On news of her passing, many of her industry peers, friends and family offered countless stories of the lasting impact Vivian had on their professional and personal lives, often commenting on how she navigated her personal and professional life with class and grace.

She is remembered by the Dessy family as “the true embodiment of what it means to be a mother, wife, daughter and friend. Vivian's vibrant personality could light up a room, and her calming presence and demeanor could always be relied upon by friends and loved ones in need of help.”

She is survived by husband Paul Diamond, children Andrew Diamond and Charlotte Diamond-Shron (Nathan Shron), Randi Diamond Marino and Meredith Diamond, sister-in law Cindy Dessy, brother and co owner Alan Dessy, and mother Ronnie Dessy.

Donations in her memory may be made to St. Jude's Hospital for Children,
