Our Story

The style destination for every woman, and every occasion.

Wear life beautifully.

Adrianna Papell, founded in NYC in 1980, began as a vision to help all women feel their most beautiful—creating soft silk dresses and blouses in artful prints. The company fast evolved from featuring daytime and occasion dresses to elegant evening and cocktail wear. As demand continued for refined fashion that celebrates life’s most meaningful experiences, Adrianna Papell responded, becoming a style destination for every woman and every occasion.

Several years ago, we connected via social media with a bridal party who had requested two Adrianna Papell dresses to wear at a wedding. The brand was not focused on the bridal business, but our customer had spoken, and the request soon evolved into the design and creation of an extensive collection of wedding gowns, bridal party dresses and accessories. The results? Thousands upon thousands of joyful weddings. Since that first request, we also created our exclusive Platinum collection, made specifically for each individual bride.

We take great pride in providing an exquisite sense of style, a dream fit, and thoughtful, meticulous craftsmanship. Our collections are imbued with an elegance and strength that empowers and inspires women of all ages, sizes, figures and backgrounds. Each piece we make is designed with purpose and perspective, creativity and dedication. We celebrate life’s most important moments by celebrating the women who experience them, and we strive to wear life beautifully each day—with joy, optimism, warmth, and true style.

Today, the Adrianna Papell brand, now in its 40th year, is distributed to all leading retailers in the United States; it has expanded its business across 27 countries, establishing a formidable global presence and is fast increasing its brand recognition.
