For years, Supreme Novelty Fabrics has been a haven for brides looking for the perfect fabric to make their custom dresses. We have catered to so many brides, that we have a room solely dedicated to laces and silks. One of SNF’s most familiar faces is one of Chicago’s best custom bridal designers – Kpoene Kofi-Nicklin of Mignonette Bridal.
Kpoene started Mignonette in 2002 as a Sportswear label. While planning her own wedding in 2009, she became increasingly frustrated with finding that perfect dress. It was during that time that she learned about other brides with similar frustrations, thus inspiring her to pursue custom bridal design. Since transplanting from San Francisco to Chicago, she and her brides have become frequent customers at Supreme Novelty Fabrics. We could not be more happy, not only to have her business, but also to have such a warm and friendly person around all the time!
