The designer behind the Wtoo Watters brand, Vatana Watters, was born in Thailand and moved to the U.S at age 7. She was schooled and inspired by living in New York and Los Angles. In 1985, Vatana graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. A year later, she moved to Dallas to pursue her own custom bridesmaids business with her sister. Neiman Marcus became the first national retailer to carry Watters designs. By the late '80s Watters was a household word in the bridal industry.
The Wtoo line was later introduced in 1999 to offer more contemporary, yet affordable designs. After 20 years, Vatana Watters continues to be at the heart of the company and is passionately involved in setting the design tone. The Watters collection designs are inspired by runway trends from New York, Paris, London and Milan and attentive to changing bridal trends and style influences. They continue to evolve in sophisticated ways. They are known for beading, embroidered corsets, voluminous ball gowns, flattering silhouettes and lace wedding gowns.
