Dressmaker Monique Sandoval: Made in Arizona

Monique Sandoval is the dressmaker behind Cleo + Clementine, and she’s been creating dreamy wedding dresses in Phoenix for more than a decade.

You might recognize the name from her old storefront, which she used to run in Phoenix’s Melrose district. Today, she’s working out of a new showroom in downtown Phoenix at The Pemberton, a collective of local, small businesses.

It’s a kind of rebirth after a pandemic year in which weddings slowed down, and Sandoval found herself making a lot out of a little. 

The Show went to visit her new space recently and saw some of her newest collection. She spoke with Sandoval about her work and the pandemic's impact.
