With the help of her family, Vatana founded the Watters brand in 1988 and has since grown the company into a bridal industry mainstay that includes four distinct labels: Watters, Wtoo, Willowby and By Watters, in addition to designing bridesmaids dresses and accessories. Today, Watters bridal gowns are worn by women all across the world, from high-profile celebrities and everyday brides on their biggest day.
