As the summer wedding season is coming at a high pace, we introduce you to Arti Gogna, one of the youngest selling dress designer of Montreal who we met in last February at the Thé à la Mode. She is sharing about her inspirations, her future projects and much more.
BHLB : Why did you decide to specialize yourself in the dress design?
Arti Gogna (AG): When I first started to design, the demand for dresses was much more higher. Girls had really difficult time searching for the good dress that would be appropriate for them and that would define perfectly their curves. Dresses for special events where unfortunately the hardest to find, so I decided to offer more possibilities to women by designing uncommon dresses that would fit their needs.
BHLB : How can you define your brand?
AG: It’s about being a confident woman. By wearing my designs women are sexy, but they look smart too! My brand is the passion women have by living their life and enjoy it.

BHLB : Are you planning to export your dresses aboard?
AG: Yes, I am working with a team in Toronto on this project.
BHLB : What made you decide entering the design world?
AG: I always have been passionate about fashion. When I was a little girl I used to sew my Barbie’s outfit… I guess it has always been in my heart!
BHLB : Did you enjoy presenting your new collection at the Auberge Saint-Antoine during the Thé à la Mode?
AG: Yes, I really had a great experience! I enjoyed working with Olivier and Lara from BHLB, they were extremely professional and accommodating.
