Dimitra Mandalas
CEO Owner

Welcome! I am Dimitra of Dimitra Designs. My whole life has been preparation to my destiny which is the Dimitra Designs brand. I started out small- working from home with one of kind custom designs until I had enough clientele to open a store. I have been in business for over 30 years and I believe part of that reason is because I take my time when selecting someone to represent my brand. Many of my loyal customers have worked with me from selecting their pageant dresses to their wedding gowns, and everything in between! Their daughters became pageant girls who grew up to brides, who now have daughters beginning their journey in the pageant/prom world. Creating that family atmosphere is important me. Meet my staff who will assist me in welcoming you as your become a part of our Legacy.
