About Abby Janiszewski

Abby Janiszewski is an entrepreneur who has been involved in the fashion world, specifically bridal, for over a decade. After graduating high school, Abby pursued her dream career in the fashion industry by attending Mount Mary University in Milwaukee and obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design and Business. She has worked at several local Milwaukee bridal shops as a bridal stylist, seamstress, buyer, and manager and in addition, completed a design internship in New York City working closely with a top selling bridal designer.

Abby continued to pursue her dream of creating her own design label and bridal shop after moving back to Milwaukee. She began designing a collection of wedding dresses under the Abby Lynn Bridal label as well as working one on one with local brides to create custom gowns. She opened her first bridal shop, Strike Bridal Bar, in 2019 that focused on alternative, unique, and modern styles for brides-to-be. Then in 2023 opened a sister store, Rare Bridal Bar, the first and only exclusively plus size bridal shop in Wisconsin.  Abby’s focus in her designs and both stores is inclusivity, body positivity, as well as supporting each bride individually. Abby continues to work closely with brides as well as her own team to ensure that brides have the best wedding dress buying experience.
