Founded in 1937 by Manny Bernstein, Paloma Blanca was first known as Blue Bird Dress. With its original location in downtown Toronto, Canada on Spadina Avenue, the company began with a bridal gown and evening wear division.In the late 70s, Harry’s two sons Marty and Shimmy Bernstein began working for the family business. Eager to spread their wings, Marty and Shimmy worked together to increase distribution to hundreds of stores throughout the United States. This cross-border success ignited a new vision – Blue Bird Dress became Paloma Blanca and the company soon started to focus exclusively on the creation of bridal gowns and accessories.
Today the company continues to be family owned and operated and remains 100% Canadian made. Paloma Blanca’s flattering and inspiring designs have garnered a number of prestigious bridal industry awards.
