Katerina Bocci launched her 2017 luxury bridal gown collection with a runway show at the London Hotel during New York Bridal Fashion Week. This collection is her ninth. The 2017 collection features a range of show-stopping designs suitable for the most formal affairs, not to mention chic, intimate ceremonies. More than half of the collection, which features 15 gowns, is made up of breath-taking ball gowns with beautiful details from top to bottom. Bocci is also an ace at showcasing a woman’s curves. The rest of her collection is made up of feminine silhouettes, Aline and mermaid-style dresses.
“I am thrilled to showcase my most luxurious bridal collection to date,” says Katerina Bocci. “We work with a surprisingly broad range of bridal clientele, but collectively all seem to have one goal in mind – to look and feel absolutely gorgeous,” she explains. “At Katerina Bocci, our goal is to give our brides unforgettable style and a memorable experience.” “My designs have always accentuated the beauty and softness of a woman’s body, so she looks and feels absolutely gorgeous on one of the most important days of her life,” Bocci says.
Born in Albania, and educated in Italy, Katerina Bocci approaches her designs with her intuition, passion and technical expertise. Her hand-sewn craftsmanship, superb fit and innovative, avant-garde designs are as luxurious as they are romantic, appealing to the most discerning brides-to-be. Known for her opulent finishes, impeccable hand beading, Swarovski trim and stone work, Bocci has hand selected the finest fabrics, using silk organza, French laces, and tulle in an array of whites, ivories, creams.
Bocci’s mother, Leze, is the inspiration for this emboldened collection. Paying homage to her home country, among the models in the Oct. 9 show was Miss New York USA 2016, Serena Bucaj, and former Miss Albania Universe contestants, Xhesika Berberi and Adrola Dushi. The haute couture designer personally oversees the production of each and every gown to ensure the utmost quality.
