Hunting & Gathering: Local fashion designer

  • Best of WNC Hall Of Fame!

    The gorgeous bridal gowns Priddy designs for her Ship to Shore label are both ethereal and traditional incorporating historical elements (such as a scrap of lace from grandmother’s dress) into their romantic and flattering shapes. And if a gal is so lucky as to have a party dress made by the charming designer she’s sure to mention it’s a Brooke Priddy. Xpress readers vote her into virtual icon status this year. Priddy’s talent extends to luscious fabric art installations; her works have graced galleries from The Artery to the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art. — R.S.
