ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Steven Birnbaum is a native New Yorker who has worked as a professional designer since 1978. After earning his degree in theatre design and dance at State University of New York - New Paltz, Steven began his career as a costume designer. Steven received acclaim for his many talents and design vision, on award winning Broadway and off Broadway productions.
Steven's next venture was Evening Wear. His gowns were sold to a group of specialty stores across the country. Eventually, he brought his unique focus to custom Bridal Wear, with his custom bridal design studio "Working Weddings", where Steven focused on the needs of New York's professional women. In the early 1990s, Steven left behind the retail world to start "Steven Studios", which allowed him to work concurrently in fashion, theatre and dance.
He collaborated with designers Isaac Mizrahi and Fernando Sanchez, as well as dance icons Twyla Tharp, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Mark Morris. Steven's extensive and well-rounded background were the perfect match for joining forces with Robert Bullock for his next collaboration.
In 1993, Steven and Robert formed "Birnbaum and Bullock", a partnership known for exquisitely produced gowns with uncompromising attention to detail. In 2009, Steven launched "The Steven Birnbaum Collection", a chic and modern collection with a whimsical take on the "All American Girl". 2015 brought the breathtakingly beautiful "Steven Birnbaum Bespoke". The Bespoke collection is Steven's custom-made collection. It is hand-crafted in his New York Atelier, allowing Steven the opportunity to work with brides individually. The Bespoke bride benefits from Steven Birnbaum's talents and guidance every step of the way, a truly memorable experience.
