Jenny Lee has been a must-see show at Bridal Week since its debut in 2003. One look at the impeccable fit and attention to detail, and you can see why. We caught up with Lee while she was in town to show her Fall 2015 collection.

theFashionSpot: What’s your inspiration this season?

Jenny Lee: This specific collection was inspired by my love for corsets. I’ve taken vintage inspiration and fused it with modern twists to create beautiful gowns that emphasize a woman’s natural hourglass shape.

tFS: Do your East Coast brides dress differently than your West Coast brides?

JL: Generally, most West Coast brides go for the trendy, figure-revealing dresses. The slinky sheath look is really in right now. East Coast brides are very fashionable and go for the more formal look.

tFS: What bridal trend are you over?

JL: I’m not a fan of A-line or giant ball gowns that are designed to not flatter the bride’s body. I think in designing any wedding dress, the most important thing to consider is if it will make the body look its absolute best.

tFS: Your dog’s name is Beyoncé. Explain!

JL: My shih tzu has a lot of volume in her booty. When she gets really excited for a treat, she bounds up and down, making her booty shake. We started calling her Beyoncé after that.
