Business Profile: Modehaus Bridal Atelier

Chelsea Lovett says hers is a classic story. After not being able to find the wedding gown she envisioned, she made her own. A few years later, Modehaus was born. Chelsea creates custom designs for her brides, tailoring every aspect of the bride’s wishes for style and shape into a paper representation and then, fine fabrics. When Chelsea decided to expand her business by adding non-custom gowns, she turned to City of Minneapolis B-TAP service provider, the University of St. Thomas Small Business Development Center (SBDC), for guidance. Together, they refined her business plan and she secured a loan which helped to purchase needed equipment and supplies for expansion. Now, Modehaus carries collections of gowns which are available to bridal shops internationally. Chelsea continues to call on SBDC when questions arise and says their support, along with her family and friends, has been invaluable. If you’d like to check out Modehaus Bridal, they are hosting a grand opening in their new, larger space in the Northrup King Building (1500 Jackson St, #225), 5:00 – 10:00 p.m., Thurs, Dec 7, 2017.
