SHEILA FRANK founder Sheila Kauffman was born in the suburbs of Philadelphia and relocated to Central Pennsylvania in her teens. Named after her maiden name, Sheila studied dance for two decades where she fell in love with Costume & Design.
Sheila interned for Charlotte Ronson, NYC and graduated from Moore College of Art & Design, Philadelphia with a BFA in Fashion Design. As an artist, fashion is her medium and Sheila carefully involves herself in every step of the design process from concept to construction. Sheila has designed RTW, swimwear and dancewear but has completely fallen in love with Bridal. Sheila began working in the bridal market by creating custom dresses for her friends which allowed her to build a private clientele.
2016 The SHEILA FRANK showroom opened in Mechanicsburg, PA.
2019 The SHEILA FRANK showroom relocated to Millersburg, PA.
Sheila believes in quality over quantity and is interested in creating a sustainable business. Sheila’s intention is to create social and environmental change. The collections are made to order and not mass produced in order to reduce waste. The collections are available at the showroom, online and trunk shows across the US.

Sheila is amazing to work with!! She made my dream dress a reality and her creativity added elements I would not have thought of on my own. She worked with me when I second guessed my own ideas and gave me options that I would never have thought possible. I now have a dress no one else could ever buy off the rack, it's truly one of a kind and 100% me and that is something I will cherish foreverSent on 04/09/2017

Sheila was fantastic from beginning to end! I was a little nervous having my wedding dress custom made, but Sheila put my mind at ease right away. She listened to my input and recommended some great ideas. She was very easy to work with and I highly recommend her. My wedding dress turned out even more amazing than I imagined.Sent on 01/23/2017
