Jamaican-based White Lotus Bridal Boutique & Design House is a four year-old company started by Kamala McWhinney. The company initially specialized in handmade hair accessories inclusive of cocktail hats and fascinators. In November 2012, the offerings were expanded to include sale and rental of bridal gowns including gowns from top international designers including Vera Wang, Alfred Angelo, Allure and Mori Lee among others. With this addition, White Lotus Bridal Boutique and Design House has the distinction of being the only Bridal boutique offering customized handmade bridal accessories (veils, garters, fascinators etc.) and non-bridal pieces including cocktail hats and flower crowns. White Lotus Bridal Boutique and design house operates two full-fledged bridal boutiques, one located at Eden Gardens, Kingston and the other in the thriving metropolis of Fairview, Montego Bay.
