A Brief History of Watters

Before Vatana Watters was an easily recognized name in the bridal industry, she was exploring her passion for design by creating one-off wedding dresses for herself and friends and family that didn't feel cookie-cutter. Almost 40 years later, Watters is at the helm of not only a creative team of designers, pattern makers, and seamstresses, but also four different labels.

In 2017, Vatana Watters' daughter, Sydney Watters Dunbar, joined as Style Director after graduating from college. Growing up with the company, Sydney has an innate sense of the brand. Sydney has also spent time in almost every department to better understand the overall business and see how each team contributes to the company.
