Shaline is an award winning Couture Designer and a graduate of L'Académie des Couturiers Canadiens in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. After her graduation and internships in some of the leading clothing, fabric, and Bridal shops in Canada, Shaline began accepting commissions for custom designed wedding gowns and opened her own boutique.
Since 1990 Shaline has been designing and sewing wedding gowns and delighting brides with her exquisite work and attention to detail. Starting out in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Shaline brings her years of expertise to East Montpelier, Vermont, USA.
In June of 2007, surrounded by the fanfare of the culmination of Montpelier, Vermont's second annual Fashion Week celebration, Shaline opened her bridal boutique at 32 State Street. In December of 2008, Shaline did it again! She transformed 27 State Street, another, much larger space into what some called a "fairy tale boutique". Shaline has once again performed her magic in July 2010 and has combined The Boutique & Sewing Studio in one location in East Montpelier!
"So much of my work involves sewing that it made more sense to combine the two aspects of the business and still be in a convenient location for everyone." Shaline's love and skill at sewing has brought many clients to her shops where she has been selling, custom sewing, altering and cleaning wedding gowns for over 29 years.
