"Dedicated to all things divine and that inspire us to enjoy a more exquisite life!!"
B Michael

It's nice to be pretty.

Connecticut born and bred designer B Michael created a quintessentially American line for spring and summer of 2015. His frocks, gowns and smattering of menswear evoke a world of garden parties and symphony balls. The designs are simple, elegant and timeless and are destined to grace the wardrobes of elegant men and women for years to come.

B Michael honed his talent while working with top designers Oscar de La Renta and Louis Feraud. Michael is a member of the CFDA. His designs have been worn by celebrities Cicely Tyson, Ashley Bouder, Amy Fine Collins, Tamara Tunie, Beyoncé, Nancy Wilson, Susan Fales-Hill, and Lena Horne.

B Michael will be the honored designer for the Youth America Grand Prix presentation - "The Making of a Costume."
