Albanian-born Katerina Bocci is an award-winning designer who has acquired international acclaim among fashion elite and celebrities, including Aretha Franklin, Fergie and Jordin Sparks.

Bocci came to America in 2001 and quickly became recognized for her one-of-a-kind creations, building a faithful clientele and a prospering business.

Since launching her successful couture eveningwear collection at the 2007 Fashion Week in New York, Katerina Bocci is expanding her profile with the launch of her premiere bridal gown collection. The luxury bridal collection features exquisite fabrics, hand-sewn craftsmanship and innovative, sophisticated designs using 100-percent silk organza and tulle, hand-beaded laces and rosettes, and Swarovski crystal trims and stones in an array of colors.

Individuality is a key ingredient in Katerina Bocci bridal. From bold, avant-garde gowns fit for black-tie affairs to sleek, classic designs ideal for destination or outdoor weddings, Bocci’s collection encompasses each bride’s unique wedding style.

“The first question I ask every bridal client is ‘describe the dress you dreamed of as a little girl,’” says Bocci. “I want to turn fantasy into reality for these women. This is the gown they’ll remember forever.”

Bocci’s gowns are made in the USA and include eco-friendly materials, including 100-percent cotton for comfortable dress liners. Read less

My first time in the studio, I could already see what a genuine person Katerina is. She showed me her 2013 dresses before they were even used for the photo shoot. I was in awe of how beautiful every single dress was made. There is so much hard work & passion that you see in every thing she does. She made me a sketch of my dress after sitting down & actually listening to what I wanted. I would have never imagined a couture designer taking her time to really get to know me & what I truly wanted. My mom was with me at every appointment and she and Katerina got along so well. She worked with my crazy work schedule for every fitting, called me herself every step of the way. Most fittings turned into the best girl talks! I was truly a princess on my wedding day & I can't say enough how blessed I was with having worked with Katerina and her amazing family & team. She even made my mom's dress & it was exquisite. There is not a day that goes by that someone doesn't tell me how beautiful my dress and veil were. For the most amazing experience & making all my dreams come true, I can't thank Katerina enough. She made me feel like her family and not just a sale. I recommend her to every bride, there's nobody else like her!

I don't know where to start with the amazing Bocci's! After going to numerous bridal stores, I finally stepped into the Katerina Bocci Studio. I sat down, spoke with Katerina herself and instantly noticed how well she was listening to me and how important she made me feel. Most so called bridal boutiques, are there to throw anything on you just to make a sale. Katerina knows exactly what suits each bride, and the quality of her dresses are just out of this world. Rich, couture fabrics are used, her lace is exquisite and the beading's are all hand made. Katerina designed my wedding dress along with my sexy bridal party dresses! I still can't believe how perfect my wedding dress was! Everyone was so in love with the entire bridal party look. She even came to my house and got me and my bridesmaids ready. The entire family was there working together and helping that process go perfect.
After my wedding, I sent girls to Katerina Bocci and each one has left feeling so comfortable and happy that they met her! She doesn't push you to buy anything, she listens to you! She is an awesome designer and is very flexible. Most bridal stores close at 5 and that't that! Katerina has stayed open late for me numerous times due to my hectic work schedule. I never once felt like I was imposing! My mother, my bridesmaids and myself absolutely adore the Bocci Family! They make you feel like family. Her beautiful family is there helping her as well, and I can honestly say each one of them were all so kind, fun and helpful. I can say the same about her amazing seamstresses as well! I loved how every appointment consisted of cappuccino, laughter and girl talk. I highly, highly recommend that everyone goes to Katerina Bocci for good quality and a wonderful experience. I can't wait to go back for future events!

Katerina Bocci is one of the most Talented Designer's I have met. She really understands a women's body and how a dress should fit. Her work speaks for itself. Not only is her work amazing but she is also a Beautiful person on the inside as well on the outside. I enjoyed going to the Boutique the whole staff was always so welcoming. This was a very pleasing Boutique to go to. I would recommend every bride to go to Katerina first, once you walk in you will know exactly what I am talking about.

When the bridal salon I bought my dress at closed down, I was sure my experience was going to be a nightmare. Katerina went above and beyond to make sure that not only did I receive the dress I ordered, but that I received the full princess treatment. My mom and I travelled to Michigan to visit her for a fitting, and our experience was more than I could ever dream of. Katerina and her staff were so welcoming, sweet and extremely detailed in their alterations. She made us feel like family, even joining us for dinner at one of her favourite local restaurants. I cannot say enough amazing things about her! She was such a pleasure to work with, and because of her talent and creativity, I was still able to have the dress of my dreams.
Thank you Katerina,
One happy bride :)

Katerina Bocci and her staff will make you feel like you are family. The moment you walk into her studio, you will know exactly what I mean. Katerina custom designed my dream dress. Just by studying my personality and asking a few questions, she was able to make a sketch of a gown that was exactly what I pictured myself wearing on my wedding day. She ensured that I had a positive experience throughout the entire process of creating my wedding gown. Katerina also helped me put together a sketch of what I wanted my bridesmaids to wear and she made it come to life with her talent and the efficiency of her staff. During my visits with Katerina, I had the opportunity to meet quite a few of her employees and I realized, she doesn't just treat her clients well, she treats EVERYONE well. Katerina Bocci is a successful designer because it is her passion, her love, and obsession. I encourage any future bride to work with Katerina Bocci as I promise she will make you the happiest bride ever!

I contacted Katerina Bocci's Design Studio about a week & a half before my wedding date. I had paid a NYC dress designer to make my wedding gown & at that point, I was not confident that I was going to receive a wearable gown. When I told Katerina's staff my problem, they did not hesitate at all & they told me that as soon as I receive the gown from the other designer to call & they would try to help me. When I brought the gown to Katerina 1 week before my wedding date, she first tried to see if it could be fixed but the other designer had made too many major mistakes to do so. Even having just met Katerina herself minutes ago, she was by my side comforting me & doing everything she could to help me. Her & her staff started bringing me out dresses to try on, including gowns from her dress line that she was working on creating for 2013 that had not even been debuted yet! All I kept thinking was this woman is an angel. Finally, we found a dress & Katerina agreed to make the gown in one week. Little did we know, the fabric supplier was closed for 2 days due to a holiday. Therefore, she really made my dress in 3 days! I know that her & her staff had to work around the clock & I am forever grateful. Not only that, Katerina & her staff (which includes her wonderful daughters) came to my house to dress me on my wedding day. My wedding gown was not only beautiful, it was light, comfortable & easy to move in. Katerina Bocci is the real deal & she is extremely talented. Going to Katerina's design studio is an experience that is family oriented, hospitable, fun, and exciting. Katerina's energy and positive attitude is contagious. She makes you feel like you are the only person that matters & every moment, every fitting, is the most special time. Katerina & her staff are very hard working & they put the customer first. Katerina is extremely unique & creative. Any bride that goes elsewhere for their wedding gown/veil/etc., is doing themselves a disservice...trust me.

Absolutely, hands down the only place to go if you want a unique custom gown that you won't see on anyone else! You get personalized service from Katerina with every fitting - you'll never see a random salesperson. Katerina takes care of you from the minute you walk in the door, until you are walking out with your gown. She and her family will make you feel like you've known them forever! She made my daughter's custom wedding gown and the whole process was a wonderful experience..... definitely a memory we'll treasure forever.

I found the wedding dress of my dreams within minutes of stepping foot into the Katerina Bocci studio I scheduled an appointment on one Saturday afternoon and went to see Katerina and her staff which included her lovely daughters, who were helpful throughout the entire process. I tried on the dress and made everyone in the room cry including my sister and best friend. As soon as I looked in the mirror, I knew it was the one. Until this day, months after my wedding, I continue to receive so many compliments about how absolutely stunning my gown was. Katerina Bocci made me feel like a real, present day princess from day one. Her studio was very organized. She and her staff were always so helpful and kind. I had the best experience with her and that is one thing I will never forget. I would look so forward to my appointments. She custom designed my veil also, which is something that comes 2nd to my dress (3rd to the groom lol). The process of getting married is a happy time but it can become stressful. I can honestly say that my dress was the most stress free and joyous moment of my wedding planning. I did not have to do anything but believe in her. As a designer, Katerina listened to me and made sure I was happy. She did not treat me like "just another transaction." She cared about my happiness and it truly showed in so many ways. One thing that my family, friends and I will NEVER forget was how Katerina saved the day on my special day. My bridesmaids walked in on time and dressed with so many dress malfunctions (I will avoid mentioning the name of the boutique who sold and altered the girls' dresses). All 8 dresses were ruined and one was very inappropriately sewed. When we explained what happened to Katerina, she quickly picked up a needle and thread and fixed the dresses within the time I was shooting my bridal photos. The girls and I were so grateful! My girls were all able to dance the night away and enjoy the night with me!

Katerina Bocci made my dream wedding gown come to life. Everything I asked for and imagined she applied into my dress. Team Bocci made me feel special and welcomed from the minute I stepped foot into Katerina Bocci Studio. Bocci is a great listener with an amazing vision. On my final fitting Katerina along with her team were dancing and laughing around me along with my family members, this is how simple and friendly she is with her brides. All in all I had an unforgettable experience with Katerina! I recommend Katerina to every girl that wants a one of a kind dress made ESPECIALLY for her. Thank you Katerina!

I shopped and shopped and looked and looked through bridal magazines and online and couldn't find exactly what I wanted. That's when it occurred to me, I didn't want to wear a gown every other woman was wearing. I asked the fashion editor at a local magazine who could make me a custom dress - without hesitation she said, "Katerina Bocci! She is amazing!" She was right! Katerina very quickly and expertly created a gown I had imagined. I would highly recommend Katerina Bocci to any creative bride-to-be, mother of the bride or bridesmaid!

Katerina made a beautiful custom-designed, custom-fit gown and veil for my wedding. She also designed my bridesmaid, flower girl and Mom's dress for the big day. Everything turned out wonderfully and I felt completely comfortable in Katerina's care. She provides a wonderful customer experience - you won't feel like a customer, but rather, a part of her family!
