Working with smaller designers means that collections tend to be created annually, rather than seasonally, so the selection at Glitter & Grit doesn't rotate often. To bring you more variety, trunk shows are regularly scheduled, providing an opportunity to view additional collections from current and up-and-coming designers during your appointment.

August 25 - SEPT 2


LEIN was launched with the desire to emulate what is great about the tradition of weddings and to shed what has become a passionless process for many women while searching for their wedding dress.

As part of the new direction bridal and womenswear is taking, LEIN hopes to breathe life back into the experience by making it as personal and customizable as possible; offering to design a look that fits perfectly, makes each woman feel comfortable in her own skin and is reflective of her personal style. Something that will become an extension of her wardrobe rather than a dress with a shelf-life of one day.
