Founded in 1937 by Manny Bernstein, Paloma Blanca was first known as Blue Bird Dress. With its original location in downtown Toronto, Canada on the popular Spadina Avenue, the company began with a bridal gown and evening wear division. Manny’s brother Harry Bernstein also worked for the company and eventually took over the business from his brother. Continuing in the family tradition of offering unique bridal and evening wear designs and high quality manufacturing, Harry helped to maintain Blue Bird Dress as a leading design house in Toronto, making a name for itself across Canada.
In the late 70s, Harry’s two sons Marty and Shimmy Bernstein began working for the family business. Working within every area of the company, from shipping and marketing to sales and design, Harry’s sons envisioned expanding the 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. With a renowned reputation for designing and producing high quality wedding gowns with impeccable attention to detail, styling, fit and best-in-class service to brides and retailers, Paloma Blanca has generated worldwide acclaim and respect within the bridal industry.
The Paloma Blanca headquarters are located in Toronto, Canada and house both the creative design and the dressmaking process, including cutting, hand beading, assembly, finishing, quality control and distribution.
Based on unique and innovative designs, an uncompromising commitment to quality and professionalism, a standard of service that is second-to-none and through the development of trusted relationships, Paloma Blanca has earned a loyal worldwide client base. Paloma Blanca bridal gowns can be found in the best bridal shops in over 200 major cities around the globe.

Her incredible power was the gift of light; all that she gazed upon glittered becoming luminous and radiant. She imbued gold and silver with their shine. She gave diamonds their fire and rubies and emeralds their sparkle. Theia is fabricated with the finest Eurpoean brocades, silks and prints, emellished with couture beading and embrodieries.

The story of Ursula, a young Swiss woman's tireless efforts to grow a multi-million dollar company from forty-eight cents. It was by creating hats, particularly for Henri Bendel and Saks Fifth Avenue that Ursula parlayed her profits into fashionable creations that caught the eye of Manhattan buyers. In 1965, romance entered Ursula's life and swept her from New York's garment center to Upstate New York, where in Schenectady, her first dress making venture was thus born with 15-20 employees. In 1967 URSULA OF SWITZERLAND was founded, and later incorporated in 1969. Simultaneously, URSULA OF SWITZERLAND, INC., RETAIL SHOPS kept Ursula's ear close to her customers - with four locations in Albany, Schenectady, Troy, and Saratoga; however, in years to come, Ursula's burgeoning wholesale business eventually eliminated the need for retail positioning. in 1972, URSULA OF SWITZERLAND, INC., moved to a historic site, a former 19th century ribbon factory nestled on the banks of the Hudson / Mohawk Rivers, in Waterford. Here, concentration on design and production saw a surge in revenues. In 1988, the combined efforts of the URSULA OF SWITZERLAND, INC.'S SHOWROOM on Broadway, eleven Road Representatives nationally situated in major Apparel Marts and an unparalleled Customer Service Department in Waterford, won URSULA OF SWITZERLAND, INC., the DEBI AWARD for Distinguished Excellence in the Bridal Industry - national recognition - specifically for Special Occasions. This accolade would be repeated in future years. Since 1994, Ursula's focus on Mother-of-the-Bride, for the petite, missy and plus sized woman, has found her a winning niche in over 5000 Better Bridal Stores.
