Dung Watanabe always wanted to open her own business. Her family is in the restaurant industry, and she thought she might follow in the same vein. It wasn’t until after her own wedding, when she was helping a friend find her dream dress, that the idea of owning her own bridal shop was “unveiled”.
While hunting for the perfect location, Watanabe came across the empty space on 33rd Ave. W, (next to Mondellos):
“When I saw the space, I fell in love with it. The whole community is wonderful. Everything just fell into place” she says.
The shop is beautiful. Carrying both bridal and bridesmaids gowns, as well as accessories, Watanabee says she keeps the bride in mind in every choice she makes. She wants the bride to have the “whole experience”.
“Unveiled” is by appointment only, in order for Dung to give each bride a truly special experience. Although if you happen to be walking by and she isn’t with a client, you are welcome to stop in. “This way it is very intmate. One bride at a time- she gets the whole store to herself,” she says.
Prices range from $1,000-4,000 per gown. “Unveiled” carries Winnie Couture, Kitty Chen, Saison Blanche Couture and Liz Fields gowns.
