Katya Katya Shehurina
KATYA KATYA SHEHURINA is a London based designer label that offers a unique selection of feminine bridal and womenswear pieces from Katya Shehurina. Originally from Latvia, Katya graduated from the prestigious ESMOD fashion design school studying the craft of couture.
Following a period with renowned French designers Nicolas Fafiotte and David Purves, Katya decided to launch her own business in 2007, focusing on her unique design style which reflects modern vintage inspired aesthetic, impeccable craftsmanship and a lightweight ethereal finish.
Since then, her distinctive style has gained international recognition. As Katya’s first flagship boutique opened in London in 2011, the brand has continuously attracted the attention of UK press as well as international buyers.
Blending modern vintage-inspired styles with opulent lace and silk materials, Katya’s vision is to create beautifully crafted made-to-order garments that combine versatility, comfort and timeless elegance.
Although an affinity for vintage styles and exclusively feminine cuts resonates throughout her work, Katya finds great inspiration in the diversity of the contemporary world ensuring a wholly enduring aesthetic. The gentle use of colour, couture details, French lace, Italian silk and hand-embellished accessories create a look of exquisitely bold and chic refinement. She is often influenced by women’s role in shaping society and so the Woman by Katya is charming, mysterious and graceful, but also vulnerable and sensitive. She attracts by her overwhelming power, freedom and unpredictable being.
Katya has been able to time and again bring a fresh creative approach to her bridal collections. Which stand apart from the norm & the predictably overdone styles of the past. Aimed at the bride wanting to distinguish herself with elegance & allure, where comfort gives her the freedom to let her personality really shine through on her wedding day.
The brand new and highly anticipated Morning Mist Collection remains heavily grounded in an earthy, wild, botanical world of romance. Feminine beauty radiates throughout the delicate lace, tulle & silk, accentuating the silhouette and waistline to no end. Layered lace embroidery adds fine delicate details to the overall look accompanied by soft scalloped trims & trains.
Katya’s signature alternating off white & pastel slips have incorporated deeper tones, giving a unique one of a kind contrast to the lace. Often alternated from day to night the where the same idea is replicated, wearing off-white for the ceremony and grey blue or blush for the reception. Offering each and every bride the chance to create a gown which relates to them and their vision.
Almost every gown in the Morning Mist collection is accompanied by a beautiful sash belt made of a natural material which is hand sewn and embellished with Swarovski crystals to add a tasteful amount of sparkle & elegance completing the final look.
Each belt can now be personalised with the bride and grooms initials delicately hand sewn into the ribbon to incorporate that something blue and create a forever keepsake of the memorable day. Special hand selected gowns to have sweetheart sayings directly across the front of the sash to help the bride really make an entrance, such as ‘truly, madly, deeply & ‘I love you’ among others memorable quotes.
Katya’s fashion forward approach to bridal allows brides to be slightly unconventional without losing the meaning behind what a wedding dress symbolises. To quote our brand:
People don’t have to like you,
But you don’t have to care.”
The collections are available in many of the world’s finest bridal and designer boutiques as well as online. In addition to the made-to-order vintage inspired bridal collections, KATYA KATYA SHEHURINA offers a bespoke service for discerning clients who wish to commission a truly one-of-a-kind vintage inspired wedding dress.
