about the designer
Sheila designed her first dress in the 4th grade during a "Life Skills" class and has been in love with the craft ever since. Her career began in college while studying at the Kent State University; there her passion flourished and skills perfected. Her work has graced the runways of New York and Los Angeles as she continued to design under other brands.
One spring her dear friend was having a difficult time finding the perfect gown for her wedding day. After a long search Sheila knew she had to help. She turned to her tried and true designer skills and created a gown fitting for her friend; hence the birth of Delana Formals.
