Andrea Pitter is a force and inspiration in an industry that often lacks inclusivity and representation for independent black design entrepreneurs.

She is a proud fashion design graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, and for the past 10 years has been on a mission to help transform engaged women into breathtaking brides with her stunning collections of bridal ensembles. Known for pairing signature classic silhouettes and modern details, her team has served thousands of brides and bridal parties since opening the New York City flagship of her label, Pantora Bridal. As she expands her brand to include additional brick-and-mortar stores and a ready-to-wear collection, her commitment to representing the unrepresented in mainstream bridal is taking center stage, with notable mentions from publications including Vogue Paris, Brides, Munaluchi, and Essence and a recent feature on the cover of The Knot
