Hayden Olivia Bridal Boutique

Hayden Olivia Bridal BoutiqueWHO Owner Heather Batt named the boutique after her daughter, Hayden Olivia. "I wanted to open a boutique that offered modern gowns for the modern bride," says Heather, a self-taught seamstress with a love for silks, satins, and lace.

VIBE Because you step off the elevator directly into the uptown boutique, you'll feel like you're walking into the designer's personal atelier in Manhattan. Crystal chandeliers highlight two walls flanked with gowns by designers including Anna Maier, Carolina Herrera, Alvina Valenta, and Reverie by Melissa Sweet. You'll also see veils and hair accessories from couture milliner Leah C., shoes from Filippa Scott, and jewelry and accessories from Turq Bridal and Erin Cole.
