Brooklyn native Keasha Rigsby is bringing a high-end bridal to downtown Detroit.
WDIV's Lauren Podell Rigsby reports that Rigsby, a television personality and bridal consultant best known as the star of the hit television series "Say Yes To The Dress," has opened a bridal botique, "Beaufitul Bridal" at the renovated John N. Bagley House, a mansion at 2921 E. Jefferson.
The shop had a media event on Sunday and is taking appointments. The grand opening is set for Thursday, Feb. 4.
After spending eight years at Kleinfeld’s, Rigsby has branched out on her own and is bringing her passion for fashion from New York to Detroit.
“Look around here, this city is explosive and I have to let everyone know about it, Detroit reached out to me,” Rigsby told WDIV.
“Look at this place. Could I have gotten a place like this in New York city? No way,” Rigsby told the station.
On her website, she writes:
I feel so blessed to be able to continue to follow my passion and open this new bridal boutique in Detroit with my business partner Vallery Hyduk. This boutique is a very special place. It is grand and romantic and filled with love and purpose. The stars have truly aligned to make this endeavor a reality.
In my ten years at Kleinfeld and my years on television (Say Yes To The Dress on TLC and Keasha's Perfect Dress on TVOne, Slice Network & Hulu Plus) I have become humbled, knowing that my successes come from my brides trusting in me and letting me connect with them. I am grateful for these personal connections and I love it when my brides keep in touch with me leading up to their weddings and after. It gives me great joy to respond personally to all my Facebook messages on Keasha's Perfect Dress Facebook and Keasha Rigsby Facebook, so I invite you to say hello.
