IMGP9088 IMGP9096Gloria Rudd and her business have become staples within the community. Many know her as the go-to gal for all dance, rodeo queen, sports and other apparel and she’s made herself known for her talent, keen eye and ability to get her creations just right.

Rudd started Stylish Designs 22 years ago as a mother looking to find, and create, just the right dance costume for her then three-year-old daughter. Her work started to gain attention among her friends, as well as a local dance studio and its instructors. She was soon asked to help make costumes for the dancers. Stylish Designs was born.

She didn’t attend the finest design schools and she wasn’t mentored by famous designers, she said. Instead she took an adult education class on sewing and from there learned how to make her own patterns and put together costumes for competitors.

“I’m self-taught,” Rudd said. “It has been a lot of trial and error. I think I’ve finally got it down to a pretty good science. I love the creativity part of it.” She loves textures, sequins and tulle, anything fun, girly and sparkly.

Her studio in Tremonton runs with the help of four employees, as well as many seamstresses who work from home. Inside the shop are 22 years’ worth of collected fabric. Along with a few ready-to-purchase costumes, each one of a kind.
