Grace Rojek Lorraine Stewart
Unbox the Dress was founded by mother-daughter team Lorraine Stewart and Grace Rojek! The two came up with the business concept after discovering several special, boxed family wedding gowns at Grace's grandmother's house. The two started to brainstorm all the special designs they could make using the beautiful fabric and lace from the gowns. Since the business began in 2017, the company has served over 1K families from coast to coast - and now operates from a 5K sq. ft. studio space in Winston Salem, NC. Grace and Lorraine love working together and helping so many fabulous women reimagine their wedding gown!
