Katya’s story began where many friendships start, at school. Two kindred spirits, Katya and Marina who became the best of friends. As the years went on and life took them in different directions, their friendship never faded. Built on love, loyalty and happy memories shared, their passion was to create something truly beautiful which reflected them as individuals.
Together they founded KATYA KATYA specialising in divinely modern feminine made to order French & Italian laced gowns. Only using the finest materials Katya’s gowns ooze romance, versatility and comfort, with interchangeable elements to suit every woman.

KATYA KATYA is a London based designer label that offers a unique selection of feminine bridal and womenswear pieces from Katya Shehurina. Originally from Latvia, Katya graduated from the prestigious ESMOD fashion design school studying the craft of couture. Following a period with renowned French designers Nicolas Fafiotte and David Purves, Katya decided to launch her own business in 2007, focusing on her unique design style which reflects modern vintage inspired aesthetic, impeccable craftsmanship and a lightweight ethereal finish.
Since then, her distinctive style has gained international recognition. As Katya’s first flagship boutique opened in London in 2011, the brand has continuously attracted the attention of UK press as well as international buyers.
Blending modern vintage inspired styles with opulent lace and silk materials, Katya’s vision is to create beautifully crafted made-to-order garments that combine versatility, comfort and timeless elegance. Although an affinity for vintage styles and exclusively feminine cuts resonates throughout her work, Katya finds great inspiration in the diversity of the contemporary world ensuring a wholly enduring aesthetic. The gentle use of colour, couture details, French lace, Italian silk and hand-embellished accessories create a look of exquisitely bold and chic refinement. She is often influenced by women’s role in shaping society and so the Woman by Katya is charming, mysterious and graceful, but also vulnerable and sensitive. She attracts by her overwhelming power, freedom and unpredictable being.
The collections are available in many of the world’s finest bridal and designer boutiques as well as online. In addition to the made-to-order vintage inspired bridal collections, KATYA KATYA offers a bespoke service for discerning clients who wish to commission a truly one-of-a-kind vintage inspired wedding dress.
Marina is co-founder of Katya Katya and has helped grow the brand globally to where it is today. Having met Katya at school in Latvia, where their friendship blossomed it was clear that the duo were to become the best of friends and business partners later on.
Marina’s passion for her job encompasses all areas of the business from brand strategy management to wholesale client relations, as well as the running of the flagship store in the heart of London.
