Find It In Fondren

Samantha Woo has designed wedding dresses since she was a little girl. “My mother sewed all her life,” says Woo. “The scraps of fabric that fell on the floor while she was working became my playground.” Woo grew up in Vietnam and moved to America when she was about 13 years old. While in college, she was on track to become a lawyer, but visiting her mother in Vietnam reignited her passion for design. Woo studied fashion design at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco and earned a Master of Fine Arts from Mississippi College. She opened Bridal House by Woo in 2015 to feature her custom line of wedding dresses.
