‘Morning Mist’ – The Enchanting New Bridal Collection from Katya Katya Shehurina
If you are one of Chic Vintage Brides regular visitors, then you will no doubt be familiar with the beautiful bridal gowns by Katya Katya Shehurina. Since discovering them in 2015 I have made no secret of my adoration of the exquisite designs that this unique bridal label produces – I quite simply love how they seamlessly blend the classic with the contemporary. For me their dresses epitomise the modern vintage aesthetic, and their collections are never anything short of divine; so I couldn’t be any more excited to be unveiling their 2017 offering ‘Morning Mist’.….
Having learnt her craft from renowned French designers, Katya the founder and designer at Katya Katya Shehurina, has time and again brought us bridal collections that are uniquely stylish and exclusively feminine, with more than a hint of boho charm and vintage elegance – you can see past collections here and here on Chic Vintage Brides. Her designs are aimed at the bride wanting to distinguish herself with elegance and allure, without sacrificing the comfort that gives her the freedom to let her personality really shine on her wedding day.
“My unique design style reflects a modern vintage aesthetic, impeccable craftsmanship and a lightweight, ethereal finish,” explains Katya. “In our collections, we use vintage styles mixed with a modern silhouette and we believe that your dress should reflect your personality perfectly and changes of colours and designs are things that we love to do. Our brides are strong individuals who take pride in the fact that they feel comfortable within themselves and are wearing a piece that mirrors this.”
Influenced by the romance of periods past, particularly those in which there were major changes in both fashion and women’s positions in society, it is easy to see in the ‘Morning Mist’ a nod to those eras, and their relevancy for today’s modern bride…..
With each collection this innovative designer surpasses the last and ‘Morning Mist’ is no different. Continuing to evoke romance with beautiful French & Italian laces that stay true to the brands aesthetics, whilst simultaneously introducing new and modern contemporary laces as well as intricate embroidery and personalised signature belts. And their unique, siganture slips, glimpsed underneath their gowns, have deepened in tone to mocha, blue and pink, accentuating the delicate lace and details like never before!
“The Morning Mist Collection remains heavily grounded in an earthy, wild, botanical world of romance where the night ends and the day breaks. Between these two radiant worlds the mist starts to lift as light starts to cut through the trees……”
Katya Katya Shehurina wedding dresses are often instantly recognisable by those signature slips I mentioned earlier. Their subtle sweeps of colour are simply heavenly, and just the sort of detail that any bride looking to add a little more personality to their look will adore!
“Our slips aren’t attached to the dress so a lot of our brides purchase two and say have a white slip for that traditional church wedding and then change into a nude or blue slip in the evening. We can make a slip in any colour so if you have a colour scheme in mind, we can work to find a fabric close to that and we also offer a dying service where bridal dresses have been dyed blue or have had a dip-dye.”
As well as the charming designs in the ‘Morning Mist’ collection, Katya and the team at her beautiful new flagship boutique in London also offer an incredibly affordable bespoke service where prices start from £2000. For any brides dreaming of a completely personal design and a wonderfully unique experience this really is something to consider. Personally I love with the thought of not only having a gown designed just for me, but also the prospect of being witness to (and involved in) the entire design experience where after your initial consultation, Katya creates several sketches for you before work on your chosen design starts, and at the end of this exciting journey you’re guaranteed a one-of-kind gown! If not for your wedding, when else in your life might you ever get the opportunity to do something so special?
Every bit as lovely as ‘Flowers of the Valley‘ don’t you think? I love the hint of color those beautiful slips give, and even better they’re so easy to swap – so why not choose a white one for the ceremony and a color for your reception?
The Morning Mist collection will be available from this month and can be tried on at Katya’s flagship boutique in London or in stockists around the world.
