Wedding Cake And Champagne Flutes On Tab

Patrice Johnson is the owner/designer of Patrice J. Bridal. Patrice has over 15 years sewing experience creating classic and timeless dresses for weddings, special occasions and prom for women of all sizes and curves. Her frustration when shopping for dresses in retail stores is what led her to start sewing. She found the same frustrations were present using commercial sewing patterns which led her to pattern making, drafting and draping. Fit is key! No matter the size or curves of a woman, looking great on their special day is imperative.  


In 2020 Patrice J. Bridal Salon opened, expanding the custom formal wear brand to include the Patrice J. Bridal Studio Collection. Patrice J. Bridal was the first black owned bridal retailer in St. Louis, Missouri.

 A natives of New Orleans Patrice and her husband Ian relocated to Saint Louis after Hurricane Katrina and quickly established roots. They have 2 children, Ian Jr. (8) and Eli (4). Patrice is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.
