Karin Rom Bridal collection 2021

Good morning lovelies! Today we’re looking at a breathtaking bridal collection by Amsterdam-based designer Karin Rom. The Florentine collection taps into our need for escapism during the pandemic. While the Netherlands was in lockdown, Karin Rom was inspired by fairy stories of princesses locked away in castles; tales of hidden gardens and grand ballrooms and romantic dreams from days gone by. “It’s funny how so many of our ideas about romance were shaped by times when ‘social distancing’ between a woman and her suitor was the only option until marriage. Social distancing used to be romantic!” she laughs.

Pioneering bridal designer Karin Rom is taking the bridal fashion world by storm. The Florentine collection’s fashion-forward bridal gowns reimagine timeless feminine silhouettes, with an added contemporary view on fit, comfort and quality. These sophisticated bridal dresses offer a true elite couture experience for brides with an international outlook and love for fashion.

Kya wedding dress by Karin Rom

KYA is the pinnacle of laid-back glamour, a perfect match for the bride who appreciates a timeless treasure.

You’ll often find her at the dinner table, with her heels kicked off on the chair beside her. Her eyes glow with intrigue as she listens to stories told only once most of the guests have gone.

KYA was co-created with our followers on social media, who helped choose the shape, the cut and the fabrics. This collaborative creation features a deep V cut on the front and back, with a form-flattering fit. Crafted with double layers of tulle and lace, the skirt has a middle slit and gentle train. 3D lace flowers are adorned throughout.
