Blu’s origin story began at Radford University where Brittany Boston and Brianna Sheil met in a Fashion Design and Merchandising Program. We both loved fashion, fabrics and design and instantly connected and vowed to one day own a shop where we could give others the opportunity to find their dream dresses. That dream materialized in 2014 when we launched Something Old Something New Bridal in Manassas, Va., which provided custom and heirloom wedding gowns and helped brides find the perfect affordable, sustainable option.
In 2022, Brittany and Brianna decided to part ways in the happiest of circumstances because Brianna decided to focus on her family and be at home more (we are still the best of friends!). Brittany chose to give the business a refresher and Blu was born - a custom design studio for all, focused on sustainable fabrics and community inspiration. Brittany's passion of bringing life and creativity back to drab or lackluster designs, giving everybody the opportunity to create something they can cherish sustainably and affordably.
