The Alfred Angelo Collection

Jason Gillen

Describe the Alfred Angelo bride?
“The Alfred Angelo bride is classic, romantic and has a love for tradition.”

Most inspirational celebrity wedding?
“The royal wedding of Grace Kelly to Prince Rainier of Monaco. She chose to put love first and leave behind all she knew. I admire her tenacity, style and bravery.”

What are the main factors a bride should consider when shopping for bridesmaid dresses?
“Silhouette, Fabrication and Color. Bridesmaid gowns come in all shapes and sizes, fabrics and colors. The bride should look for a fabric, silhouette and neckline that flatters all of her friends while still achieving the "look" she wants for her wedding.”

From hand sketching all gown concepts to selecting the right textiles and embellishments, Jason closely watches all elements of the Alfred Angelo Bridal Collection, which pairs well with a classical bride looking for the quintessential wedding gown in a style that is romantic, traditional and beautiful. Jason holds degrees from both New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology in Fashion Design: Eveningwear and Bridal as well as a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Fashion Design and Construction at Oneonta State University.  From the very start of his career, Jason has focused his design skills exclusively on the bridal industry having also worked as Creative Director maintaining several bridal, bridesmaid and special occasion collections with twice-yearly release dates.
