We had the good fortune of connecting with Erica Angeline and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Erica, why did you pursue a creative career?
I was born a creative. I can remember as a child entertaining my parents by putting on plays and singing with my dolls. That evolved into making costumes for my mother’s doll collection and emersing myself into beauty, fashion and design as a teen. An artistic career was something I always knew would happen. Once I made fashion my main focus I had more opportunities come my way. Designing clothing allows me to tell the clients visual story, showing their individual personality. Being a creative shapes the way you view the world, your thought process and how you chose to live. I can’t imagine life any other way!

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
At Erica Angeline Bridal, we offer our brides the choice of wearing a beautiful gown from our collections or having your gown custom designed. Our gowns are created in our small factory, paying close attention to detailing with hand embroidery and beading. Each custom gown has it’s own beautiful journey from sketch to the final fitting. I am most proud of our online process that has been in development for the past two years,allowing brides to shop our collection, engage with us remotely and have their custom gown in 3-6 months. We promote body positivity and encourage our brides to shop for their unique bodytype and personality. Because fashion is constantly evolving our creative team embraces new challenges that each client will present to us, it lends to our continual growth as a design firm.  

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In my world art, culture and food coexist, therfore I would plan an itinerary full of history, galleries and foodie spots. Here’s just a few of our perfect pairings: SCAD Museum of Fashion & Film & The Capital Grille (BuckHead) The High Museum of Art & The Flying Biscuit The Trap Music Museum & The Beautiful Restaurant Fernbank Science Center & Slutty Vegan Museum of Design Atlanta & Cafe Intermezzo The King Center & Mary Macs Tea Room

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate this shoutout to Mr. Esteban Guzman of QTailors who mentored and encouraged me to open my first retail store years ago.
