"I am inspired by the timeless elegance of romance, for what is more romantic than the joining of two hearts?"
Designer and Merchandiser Martin Thornburg started his career as a custom bridal designer and consultant. His execution of exquisite custom bridal wear was the focus of his energy and the start of a dream come true. Creating that “Perfect Dress” was a special gift. Focusing on what makes each woman feel beautiful and not look like everyone else, it is highly important to Martin to capture the personality of each bride in his designs. Custom bridal on a one-on-one basis was only a stepping-stone to a bigger endeavor. His career has blossomed into the design and merchandising of the David Tutera for Mon Cheri bridal collection.
Martin’s expertise also includes many interviews for leading national publications such as Brides as well as being quoted in various trade magazines like Vows and Women’s Wear Daily. He was also featured in an Internet “chat room” for brides to seek his advice. The David Tutera for Mon Cheri collection is as diversified and unique as the brides themselves. Martin truly believes that a great dress is all about shape, fit and construction. The icing on the cake is the detail and fabrics he is so passionate about!
