OUR PROJECT IS LIVE NOW CLICK HERE TO VIEW
Svetlana Bridal Couture is a new bridal brand and a bridal salon in Larchmont, New York in Westchester county. One of the main designers behind our bridal brand is Svetlana Kharina who has been a successful entrepreneur and a bridal designer in Russia for more than 20 years. For many years Svetlana has been an exhibitor at a Wedding Fashion Moscow Expo. Svetlana’s dresses are famous for her signature corset design which creates a special feminine fit, hugging and flattering any body type.
Svetlana Bridal Couture is an international bridal brand any bride can afford without sacrificing the look of the dress. To offer more choices for our brides we are adding a selection of wedding dresses by emerging Russian and Ukrainian designers.
Svetlana's designs range from dramatic, embellished with swarovski crystals, lace, and feathers to classic traditional styles. Svetlana Kharina prefers exclusive materials for her inspiration and the creation of couture designer gowns. Her clientele’s geography (Russia, Poland, Israel, South Africa, and USA), proves dedication to quality and her company’s success as an international brand.
Our dresses are designed and manufactured under strict supervision of our leading designer in Russia.
Our concept is quite different than what other bridal designers and salons are offering.
As a Brand
- We offer unique corset style wedding gowns and bridal separates like corsets and skirts that give a secure feeling to a bride by hugging beautifully any body type including our curvy brides.
As a Bridal Salon
- We don’t mass produce our gowns because we think every bride deserves a one of a kind wedding dress.
- We add new designs every months to ensure variety for our brides.
- Our couture dresses are reasonably priced in comparison to other bridal designers.
- We do sell our dresses the same day as well, so if your wedding is months or weeks away, we got you covered.
- We don’t charge for alterations. I know it’s hard to believe but when you order your gown with us you don’t have to pay anything extra because we custom measure you to ensure the dress fits your perfectly. And if smth extra needs to be done, we take care of that.
- We do semi-custom dress designs meaning you can interchange fabric, lace, details, and silhouettes to have your dream gown at no special cost for the service itself.
With Svetlana Bridal Couture you will remember how your dress looks like because our lead time for orders is less than 5 months.
As a new bridal salon in New York we have been open for over 1 year now. We were able to introduce our beautiful store for brides in hudson valley, receive positive reviews and responses from our brides, get our foot in the door as a local bridal shop with personality and even won the Knot Best Of Weddings 2016 Award!
However in a highly competitive environment like New York among big bridal brands and retailers, we don’t stand a chance to become widely recognized as a unique bridal brand unless we advertise and communicate our message about our product and services with our brides and potential retailers at a higher level. By participating in local bridal shows we will be able to reach more brides. New York International Bridal Week will open new possibilities to retail across the US and that is a major expense.
Our family have been supporting the launch of the brand and the salon from our personal funds. In order for us to complete this advertising project and get our brand name out at local bridal shows and New York International Bridal Week, we need your help with funding our advertising expenses and reaching our goal of collecting $8,000 at KICKSTARTER.
- Local bridal shows spots ( fee to be a vendors at the event)
- Promo materials (booklets, cards, Ad stands)
- Bridal Market Booth (New York International Bridal Week, The Knot Bridal Market)
- Models, hair stylists, make-up, photographers, printing)

Risks & Challenges
Right now we are preparing a new collection of wedding dresses and bridal gowns to display at New York International Bridal Week in Fall 2016. By not knowing if we will meet our goal of $8,000 we are risking investing money and time in marketing resources and new designs for the show that we might not be able to take part in.
Our biggest challenge is advertising to spread the word about our new bridal brand and ofcourse marketing preperations for local bridal shows and New York International Bridal Week.
