In order to appeal to her entire customer base, Romona Keveza designs two collections each season for the bridal market: Legends, which celebrates classic style, and Collections, which is more fashion-forward.

For her Legends line, Keveza sought to celebrate the timeless style of Grace Kelly with a 14-piece lineup of ethereal white gowns. The opening silk organza ballgown floated into the intimate showroom presentation like a cloud, and was the most quintessential iteration of Kelly’s iconic wedding gown. Also prominent were ballgown silhouettes with delicate lace and beaded embroidery details, making it clear that this was a line serious about craftsmanship and class. Keveza also offered turtleneck and off-shoulder lace overblouses that transformed classic styles into something even more elegant. Those made the case for wearing the same dress for both the ceremony and reception, with only a quick change in between to get a different look.

In a 180-degree shift, Collections was all about the modernist bride. That meant color, architectural designs and drama — especially in the opening look, which had a silk net chapel-length cape, and the closing gown that can only be described as a fantasy Cinderella moment. A blush and lavender fluted gown made of metallic silk-embroidered lace was a standout that fused traditional and modern design. The shorter length architectural gowns were simple and clean, but didn’t measure up to the rest of the collection.

But that couldn’t take away from the essence of Romona Keveza bridal and the beautifully crafted timeless styles, exquisite fabrics and master craftsmanship.
