The self-described true romantic brings her artistic sensibility to all she creates. Known for her vintage inspired style and luxurious detailing, Claire has set the trends in the bridal world with the clothing she designs, and the artistic imagery she envisions. Throughout the evolution of the collection which began with luxurious lingerie and evolved into innovative gowns for both weddings and red carpet, to fine jewelry, accessories, and invitations, the designer has maintained her signature style. Since founding her company with husband Guy Toley over 20 years ago, Claire has art directed numerous photo shoots, runway presentations, and her work is regularly featured in print, television and blogs such as Brides, Martha Stewart, The Knot, Style me Pretty, People Magazine and Good Morning America. The company and Flagship Salon are housed in The Castle, a historic Los Angeles landmark built in 1928. Claire calls Los Angeles home with her husband Guy, and their daughter Lorelei.
