Fashion Focus- Monte Durham Say Yes To The Dress


Happy Friday and welcome back to Fashion Focus!

Everyone loves Monte Durham of Say Yes To the Dress Atalanta and he is coming to Richmond, Virginia this weekend- Sunday February 26th!

Monte will be attending our Richmond  Greater Virginia Bridal Show at The Meadow Event Park located just off I-95 at the Kings Dominion exit. The show is from 1:00 – 5:00 in the Farm Bureau Expo Center- East Hall.

Monte Durham is the Fashion Director on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta. He’s the impossibly tall, silver-haired Southern gentleman with the sly sense of humor.

Fans of the show know his uniform of slim suits and Hermes belt, but natives of Monte’s adopted city, Washington, D.C., may have seen him in shorts and running shoes on the Mount Vernon trail or walking his Welsh terrier, Nellie Belle.

Guests attending the show on Sunday will get to hear tips from Monte about choosing your perfect wedding dress, right before the fashion show, that will feature designer gowns by some of the top bridal stores in the region including Alfred Angelo, Reflections Bridal and Sixpence RVA. Monte will also do a question and answer segment and brides will have the opportunity to get a photo taken with Monte.

Here we share a preview of just some of the designers you will see on the runway Sunday, see you there!
