After a stint as a contestant on “Project Runway,” designer Heidi Elnora (B.F.A., fashion, 2002) is back on the small screen — this time on her own show.

On “Bride by Design,” which airs on TLC on Friday, July 25, the Birmingham, Alabama-based designer and her custom-order wedding dresses share the stage with Southern brides who want a hand in creating their gowns.

Elnora designs the customized gowns as well as her eponymous line of bridal wear, and her dresses are sold in 24 boutiques around the world including select Nordstrom stores.
