Canadian-born bridal designer Romona Keveza creates gowns inspired by some of the most celebrated stars of the 20th century – and their unforgettable weddings. Keveza’s dresses, known for their clean, simple, almost architecturally precise lines, have been lauded as modern, yet timeless.

The Romona Keveza collection burst into the spotlight five years ago when the designer was asked to contribute gowns to be photographed for Legendary Brides (HarperCollins, 2000) authored by etiquette expert Letitia Baldridge, who served as Jacqueline Kennedy’s White House social secretary. In her sensationally illustrated book, Baldridge chronicled the weddings of famous brides of the last century.

“Romona creates her elegant bridal collections taking inspiration from the past and incorporating exquisite designs for today’s fashionable bride,” praises Monica Hickey, who has presided over some of the most prestigious bridal salons and boutiques in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Spain, Japan and the U.K.

Keveza’s inspiration stems largely from her fascination with the fashion tastes of some of the world’s most memorable brides, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Princess Grace of Monaco, Princess Diana of Wales, Princesses Caroline and Stephanie of Monaco and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

“I look to these incredible women of style noting that the designs they wore are as striking today as they were on their wedding day,” she says.

Her current bridal collection is inspired by the glamour of classic Hollywood and those extraordinary goddesses of the silver screen: Marlene Dietrich, Lauren Bacall, Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn. The allure of luxury fabrics is combined with stunning artistry of design.

Based in New York, Keveza continues to expand her vision with the Legends Collection, an array of moderately priced bridal separates that can be coordinated in a variety of ways by each bride to create a unique look – and legend.
