About Designer Renee Strauss
Renee grew up watching her family as they catered parties and weddings in Chicago, Illinois. Renee’s love for weddings took root at an early age and she later studied fashion trends, eventually blending her love of the two into an upscale, Beverly Hills salon that caters to the rich and famous all around the world. She caught Hollywood’s eye and has never looked back.
Teaming Up with Katz
This couture designer and salon owner teamed up with jeweler Martin Katz to create a diamond studded dress worth about $12 million. The dress is considered the most expensive on record to date. The dress features about 150 carats worth of diamonds. The dress was originally presented at the Luxury Brands Lifestyle Bridal show in February of 2006.
Beverly Hills Salon
In addition to creating amazing dresses fit for royalty, Strauss also sells high-end dresses in her salon. Some of the designer dresses you can expect to see in her salon include:
• Ysa Makino
• St. Pucchi
• Ines Di Santo
Working with stylist and designer Renee Strauss is about more than just the $12 million dollar dress she designed, but a personal experience that will help you find the perfect dress that enhances all your best features and makes you feel like a princess on your wedding day. The salon offers a personal stylist to work with you. The stylist will pull various designer dresses, but most can be customized to suit your needs.
If you plan to visit Renee’s salon, it is best to book an appointment or attend one of her trunk shows, which are offered several times a year. For a special order dress, whether it’s worth millions or priced a bit more modestly in the thousands, allow the designer six to nine months to customize the dress. If you love the idea of diamonds in a dress, but want to keep the price point a bit lower, ask Renee about her dresses with simulated jewels, which come in at about $10,000.
What’s next for Renee Strauss? Perhaps she’ll design another diamond studded dream of a dress or maybe she’ll opt for something a bit more understated. No matter the direction she chooses, a Renee Strauss creation or even just a dress from her salon, is sure to be the height of fashion and elegance.
