It all started 26 years ago with a few dresses handmade for friends and family. Turns out, there was a niche for well designed special occasions dresses, and it caught on in a big way. By the late ’80s Watters was a treasured name in the bridal wear industry.
Always looking forward, the company continues to evolve and currently offers designer bridal gowns, affordable bridal gowns, and dresses for bridesmaids, mother of the wedding, junior bridesmaids, and flower girls under the brand names of Watters, Wtoo, Encore, C20, Seahorse. Last year the Encore collection was launched – stylish dresses designed to go from cocktail parties to rehearsal dinners to post-wedding events.
And beginning in 2013, Watters announced Watters wedding veils and Watters bridal accessories. Watters Veils by Toni Federici and Watters Accessories by Thomas Knoell collections are exciting new additions to the Watters and Wtoo lines and will help brides to exquisitely finish their look.
Vatana Watters continues to be at the heart of the company and is passionately involved in setting the design tone. Her inspirations emanate from her heritage, experience on both coasts and the desire to reflect the spirit of the times. Vatana recognizes that design is where it starts, but not where it ends. And that’s why Watters continues to be appreciated for being a cut above for quality and responsiveness.
