One summer, Rebecca Schoneveld lost her job, her house caught on fire, and she found out she was pregnant with her son. She knew it was time to get back to basics and do what brought her joy: designing clothes. Within 12 hours of listing her bespoke wedding dresses on Etsy, she had her first sale. Rebecca now has a global business with a stunning retail boutique in Brooklyn, where she sells her timeless, fully customizable bridal gowns.
