Eugenia Couture

It’s time for another Designer Spotlight series, this time with Barbara Kavchock, designer of Eugenia Couture! We have loved having this bridal line in our boutique for the past two years. And our brides a clearly drawn to the style, designs, quality and fit of the Eugenia Couture collections. It’s time for you to know more about the well received bridal gowns, so we asked Barbara a few questions just in time for the Trunk Show..

It is so special to have a mother-daughter duo behind the collection. How do you think this special bond plays into the love given to each collection?
My mother, Eugenia, has groomed me and taught me everything I know about designing and this business . Her influence is apparent in everything we make. Since I’ve taken over, I have infused my own personal aesthetics and preferences along with her wisdom and experience.

How long have you worked in the bridal industry, and how have you seen trends change?
When  I came on board at Eugenia Couture it was 2002. The gowns were all strapless and silk satin and a-line was a very popular silhouette. We were actually doing very well with hand-painted gowns at the time. We also used to do hand painted veils to match.

What do you think is the quintessential Eugenia Couture bride?
She is sophisticated and elegant. Has an acute appreciation of fine fabrics/laces, workmanship and style. She is also proud to support a company that produces in the USA  and designs with a “zero- waste” philosophy. Learn more HERE.

We are so thrilled to have your pieces with us! How would you describe the collection that we will see with this trunk show?
We went a bit sexier this season with soft gowns that have body hugging fits and sheer cut-outs in all the right places. Lots of different laces and nude under layers  Every gown is a bit unique, though, and each has a personality of her own.

What is the single-most important thing you want brides to know about you and your designs?
We want brides to know that we take a lot of pride in what we do. Because we produce here in the States, we are very involved in every dress that is made. We see and inspect them before they are shipped to the salons. Brides can rest assured that their dream dress is in good hands!

Thanks Barbara for taking the time to chat with us! Brides, you can give us a call at 571-449-2580 or visit for your appointment and chance to try on the new collection!

Angel Rivera Couture’s exquisite bridal and evening wear collections offer an elegant flair, fit for any contemporary bride-to-be. Rivera’s intricately detailed gowns are accentuated with the richest silks, delicate lace and intricate beading. Through studying at Parsons and working with brides-to-be at Kleinfelds, Angel acquired a keen eye for fit and proportion. His line exudes sophistication by creating dramatic sweeping silhouettes while flattering the female figure. Angel Rivera’s opulent designs perfectly combine fashion forward notions with traditional timeless beauty.

If that’s not enough, we touched base with Angel at New York Bridal Fashion Week and got the scoop directly from the creative mind behind the Angel Rivera Couture collection:

1.) What are you bringing to bridal that you feel hasn’t been seen before?
The Angel Rivera collection brings to bridal the essence of sophistication and glamour in dramatic silhouettes, fine silks and spectacular beading. I bring designs for the bride who want to command the spotlight.

2.) Are their certain fabrics and design elements that you prefer when creating a dress?
I enjoy working with silk organza’s and silk satins and when I find that perfect fabric I love to see what they can do in the draping process as well as how lace and beading can complement the fabric!
3.) How do you think you have evolved since the start of your first collection?
THE ANGEL RIVERA LINE CONTINUES TO EVOLVE IN SOPHISTICATED WAYS. Our beaded, embroi­de­red details, voluminous ball gown skirts, flattering silhouettes and lace wedding gowns live up to every women’s wedding dreams.

4.) We are so excited about your trunk show with us! What can we expect with your latest collection?
This season you will see lots of elegant and flowing fabrics with dramatic details such as silver embroidery, crystals, some draping and beautiful laces never used before…. and let me just add one more thing you will see some amazing back details!
5.) How did you get into fashion, and more specifically, why did you choose bridal?
As a child, I had an innate desire to create beautiful things. I was obsessed with fashion, and when I was old enough, I began to dress and accessorize my sisters for all kinds of occasions. But it was bridal that really caught my attention. My mother would take us to the flower park in Ohio and I would see all of the brides taking photos in their gowns on their wedding day.  They were so happy and always looked amazing.   I think a wedding dress is the most important garment a woman will ever wear, and one that she will always remember and treasure and this is why I do bridal.

Soliloquy Engagement Story – Ashley

Written by , Posted in General, Real Soliloquy Couples

Our brides have such interesting beginnings, and we thought it would be fun to start sharing how their love first began. First up is Soliloquy Bride Ashley who gets married in May 2015, and here is her story!

How They Met:
“I was living in Hawaii when Steven came to visit on vacation from Virginia in August of 2012. He was visiting his friend, who was a mutual friend of ours. We met the first night he arrived, and spent the rest of the week hiking, playing games on the beach and watching football. At the end of his vacation, we decided to keep in touch and planned to meet when I came home for Christmas. Two weeks later, my marketing firm disbanded and decided to move back to the East Coast, conveniently near Steven :)  And the rest is history!”


The Engagement Story:
“Steven proposed on June 14th, 2014 at National Harbor. We went there to celebrate my birthday, so we went out for a wonderful dinner and stayed at Gaylord National. When we got back to the room after dinner he told me to close my eyes. When I opened them I saw champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. I said thank you, but I’m really tired and want to go to bed. He told me to close my eyes again, and the next thing I knew he was down on one knee asking me to marry him! After I said yes, we drank the champagne and enjoyed all of the chocolate covered strawberries while he told me the story of going to ask my parents for their permission to marry me :)  I was very surprised. He bought the ring in March, so I knew it was coming, but for some reason I didn’t expect it at all that weekend. It was simply perfect!”
