About Marina Konnikova
Le Caprice represents the vision and commitment of Marina Konnikova. Within this airy bridal atelier in Silicon Valley, you will immediately understand that her number one priority is to create your perfect dress for your perfect day. A seamstress at an early age, Marina grew up in Russia surrounded by fabrics, dress patterns, and sewing machines. Her grandmother, a talented dressmaker, introduced her to the world of of fashion design. In her early twenties, Marina began designing custom special occasion dresses for herself and the young women who admired her talent and vision. Marina considers this early exposure to dressmaking as the basis for her education in fashion design.
After relocating to the Bay Area, in 1998 Marina was introduced to the bridal industry working at Bay Area Bridal, a leading bridal boutique at that time. Marina challenged traditional sewing techniques and explored alternative methods of dressmaking to the benefit of her valued clients. After several years as the head seamstress for Bay Area Bridal, in 2009 Marina established Le Caprice. It has been built on Marina’s more than 30 years of experience, dedication, and a natural talent for transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Marina and her team of designers can alter any wedding dress, bridesmaid dress or social occasion dress to the exacting standards required by the world’s high-end designers. Marina is one of very few people that designers such as St. Pucchi, Caroline Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, Lazaro, Vera Wang and others refer to for after sale alterations. This is your assurance of quality workmanship. There is simply no other place in Northern California more qualified to create the fit and the look you want.
