Meet the Founder

“When I got married, I ended up designing my own gown because I was frustrated by the lack of options and the less-than-stellar shopping experience that has been the norm in the bridal industry for far too long. Seeing how stagnant it was, I set out to bring some freshness to the bridal business. As a designer, as an innovator, I believe I have a duty and an obligation to use what I know [about the apparel industry] to make this world a better place. Nuorikko began as an outlet for a personal frustration. It was a way for me to design some bridalwear that I’d actually want to wear, but as I’ve crafted the ideas and standards behind the brand, its taken on greater importance in the realm of apparel manufacturing & social responsibility.
I want to empower today’s bridal consumers to be able to create their own look, while maintaining the smallest footprint possible. Nuorikko is doing this by engineering a bridal line of endlessly wearable, premium mix-&-match separates, using unique fabrics and garments designed and manufactured in the U.S. Not only do you get to create your own bridal look, you get to choose your experience, as well, even extending your styling possibilities beyond the wedding day.

All of our pieces are made to order ensuring individuality and truer sizing than any other option available on the market, and delivered in just 8-11 weeks—half the time of our competitors. Nuorikko is evolving the bridal gown and is the first and only brand of it’s kind to use these manufacturing and design techniques. Welcome to the future of bridal.
