Monique started her career with Melivier in 1996 as a designer. By 2001, she opened her first store in Beverly Hills and expanded her business to home decors and hand bags six years later. When it comes to design, Monique wants the personality of the individual to shine first. Thus, she is against over-styling.
She got her big break in 2005 after Martha Stewart Weddings featured her bridal gown. She advises soon-to-be-brides to prepare ahead so they will not be time-pressured to select the bridal gown. As reported in Notable Biographies, Lhuiller thinks that the only important opinion is of the bride’s and not of those around her because the various opinions would only confuse the bride
