Detroit-born Kevan Hall’s fashion creativity emerged early.  By the age of seven, he knew he wanted to be a fashion designer.  Years later, while studying in California, he made a vision-enhancing trip to Europe where his lifelong love of luxury and haute couture was sparked. With his own Signature collection, his philosophy of fashion has remained true to those early days.  “I enjoy the process of design from concept to execution,” he states.  “But the most gratifying part is seeing a design come to life on a beautiful woman.”  Rejecting trends and fads in favor of a lasting signature look, Hall’s hallmark of glamour with a modern sensibility is a priceless gift to the welcoming world.

Cameron Blake

Cameron Blake by Mon Cheri is a classic, refined collection of mother of the bride dress sets, special occasion gowns and ladies dress suits that lends itself to the notion that maturity should not compromise one’s panache. Flattering, graceful silhouettes are created through the use of illusion necklines and sleeves, thick shoulder straps and softly shaped skirts. And, similar to the Montage collection, most Cameron Blake styles include matching jackets or shawls. Distinguished elegance sets Cameron Blake apart from other mother of the bride dress collections. Cameron Blake by Mon Cheri is designed for women of a mature age who still demand style and grace in their wardrobes. Designer, Ivonne Dome believes that a special occasion calls for a special dress, regardless of age.



The House of John Paul Ataker is rooted in more than three decades of fashion, and two decades of creating some of the most decadent textiles in the world. Founded as a custom tailor shop in Istanbul, in 1977, the Ataker legacy is based on luxury craftsmanship, sumptuous fabrications and couture influence. In 2012, The House of Ataker launched its first collection of the most glamorous, and show stopping evening & ready to wear under the now epiphanous label. Ataker’s timeless forwardness & attention to detail has rooted the label as a go to for all things impeccable.


Montage designer Ivonne Dome explains, “I work hard to create social occasion pieces that evoke the positive, daring feelings that everyday casual wear often stifles. There’s something about wearing a gorgeous social occasion gown or suit that allows a woman to live out her most glamorous fantasies. Everyone deserves to feel special.”

Marisa Baratelli’s namesake and creative director for fifteen years, Marisa Baratelli-Young joined the company after inheriting her mother’s passion for Thai culture and designing with Thai silk. From a young age, through university in Asia, and continuing today, Marisa found a connection between the vibrant colors and magical properties of hand woven Thai silk. In her early 20s, she moved to Bangkok to develop a deeper understanding of the craft as well as to act as a liaison with the business in America.

Marisa’s love for Thai culture steadily evolved. She immersed herself into the world of energy arts and history. Coupled with the inspiration she receives from creating colorful special occasion and resort wear collections, Marisa developed her own practice of yoga, qigong and meditation, YOQI ™, and became an expert on Thai Spirit Houses, collaborating with artists and lecturing at museums across Asia.
