The Bridesmaids Wore: Kristel Yulo Know about having Kristel Yulo design your bridesmaids' dresses.

HOW OFTEN DOES A CLIENT HAVE TO VISIT YOU FOR FITTINGS?
It all rests on the design–if it is something that is easily fitted, it takes about one fitting after the standard muslin fitting. But if I do a lot of draping and work with embellishment, it takes two to three fittings.

ON AVERAGE, HOW LONG DOES AN ENTIRE BRIDAL ENTOURAGE COLLECTION TAKE TO MAKE?
Around three to six months.

DO YOU ALSO HAVE TO DISCUSS DESIGN STRATEGIES WITH THE BRIDE'S WEDDING GOWN DESIGNER?
Since this day is usually all about the bride, it would be ideal for me to at least see a sketch of the bridal gown to ensure that the entourage pieces won't overpower it. The entourage ensembles need to be softly combined with the whole theme and look that the bride wants for her dream day.

WHAT ARE THE PRICE POINTS OF A BRIDAL ENTOURAGE COLLECTION BY KRISTEL YULO (INCLUDING THE ENSEMBLES FOR THE GROOMSMEN)?
I'm very flexible when it comes to price. I can work within a fair budget and make exceptions but I can also work with very expensive fabric that will surely make the entourage collection stand out.

OUT OF ALL THE WEDDINGS YOU'VE DESIGNED FOR, ARE THERE ANY PARTICULAR ONES THAT YOU LOVE OR ARE DEARLY MEMORABLE?
Most of my weddings that I design for are all pretty memorable, but if there is one wedding that I felt was more special than the others was the one of Chris Yam-Daez. First off, Chris gave me complete and total carte blanche. It also helped that her girlfriends were so much fun to fit. They came and enjoyed the art that goes into it. That's what it's all about, really, the camaraderie shared between both sides and all their loved ones.

ANY POINTERS PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAVING YOU AS THEIR BRIDAL ENTOURAGE DESIGNER?
I am very thorough, and I try my hardest to see and understand what the client wants. I then give certain suggestions that amplify their idea into production. It's important to make sure that the bride is well-involved in the process to make her day even more distinctive and memorable.
