Deborah Drattell is a New York City-based belt designer whose creative inspiration came to her while preparing for her daughter’s wedding. With a lack of formal and bridal accessories on the market, Drattell, who is also an American opera composer, decided to make her own. Today, her creations are handcrafted in New York by fine materials like lambskin, suede, and calf hair. The slimming belts are enhanced with crystals, feathers, and intricate designs worthy of a wedding. Simpler styles can be worn day to night, any time.
