Fighting Eel has launched its first bridal collection offering a collection of simple, chic and romantic dresses and gowns for brides and bridesmaids.

“We had many brides and bridesmaids coming in for dresses,” says Rona Bennett, who designs Fighting Eel along with Lan Chung. “Lan and I both used Fighting Eel designs for our bridesmaids. I think it is great because it captures a casual elegance. It’s perfect for beach weddings and you really can wear the dresses again.”

According to Bennett, they picked the most popular styles, ones that are easier to wear and modified them for wedding. Sizes run from x-small to large. Also, the dresses are custom-made so bridesmaids can find a style that best fits their body type and have them made in the same color.

“The great part is, they’re able to wear the dresses after the ceremony,” adds Chung. “Usually the bridesmaids have to spend a lot of money on a dress they can never wear again, so they’re so happy when they find out these are dresses they can wear again and again.”

Bennett and Chung created Fighting Eel in 2003 and it quickly became one of the fastest-growing young fashion companies from the 50th state. Their designs have been featured in many national publications including The New York Times, Elle and Life & Style, and have been seen on countless Hollywood celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Hayden Panettiere, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

The bridal collection is only available at the Fighting Eel headquarters in Chinatown (47 N. Hotel St.). For more information, visit or call 524-1472.
