It is the perfect timing to give you all a Designer Spotlight in lieu of everything going on in the world. Let’s take the time to step aside and take a look at a beautiful designer, who focus’s on the non-traditional, modern bride and hear about an interview that we had the privilege of doing. Not only that, but we were able to capture a gorgeous Daci gown, the Leah Silk Chiffon, along with a gorgeous model, coincidentally named Leah as well. Instantly, we were in love with the free flowing, not so traditional dress that we needed to learn more about the designer herself.
Before we get into our interview, check out some of the photos from our styled shoot:

Now, time for the interview!
How long have you been a Designer:
I have been doing this for 23 years!
How did you name your company? What does Daci represent?
My name is Daci. I was born and raised in Romania – Transylvania. Daciana is my full name; everyone calls me Daci.
Can you describe to us your absolute favorite gown (something different than the one we used) and a send a picture of it?
Every new dress becomes my new favorite 😂 I put all my heart in each of them.
Who is your ideal bride, meaning who do you design for?
I design for the non-traditional, modern bride. I love detail, texture, color, flow and movement. You won’t see 2 dresses alike. I work with each bride individually and love to spark their creativity and give them all options possible to create their one of a kind dream dress. The brides that come see me find value in high quality laces and silks.
What is the price range for your gowns?
Bridal line starts at $2,900. Custom dresses start at $3,500. This year I introduced a new collection where the top is not sewn to the skirt. At the fitting the brides have the opportunity to try on different tops and bottoms, to help them visualize their dream dress better. Then the final dress is one piece.
Where are you based out of?
We are located in Boise, Idaho but half of the brides come from out of state. Some come to Boise for the fitting, otherwise we do FaceTime appointments and “in home” fittings where I ship the requested favorite dress.
What is to come next for Daci Gowns?
Late spring 2020 I will be introducing a new bridal line, add on pieces to existing wedding dress. I’m super excited to launch this collection. I often have brides that already bought their dress and they want some “finishing touches” or a second look. The line will consist of silk chiffon overdresses, skirts, off the shoulder sleeves, capes. The pieces will be detailed, natural plant based dyed, neutral embellished to blend perfectly with any dress. I will have one of a kind pieces ready to buy, and a small line of each of the pieces listed above.
