Designer Spotlight: Eugenia Couture

Wedding Dress Styles for Every Bride at Tre Bella Bridal in Durham NC

Eugenia Vasiliadis began her career in high-fashion bridal design in her native Greece over 30 years ago and later created her own line here in the US, Eugenia Couture. Her daughter, Barbara Kavchok, joined the business in 2004 and became lead designer in 2012. Today, the women work very closely together, but Barbara has certainly paved a new path for the company. With a classical art background, she has contributed fine-art techniques to the design process, striving to make each gown a masterpiece.

At New York Bridal Fashion Week, Southern Bride & Groom Magazine was delighted to meet this mother-daughter team, who are as down-to-earth as they are talented. As you can see, the gowns by Eugenia Couture and their new label, Joy, are a wide range of styles that can appeal to many different brides.

Eugenia Couture wedding dresses have recently made their way to NC via Tre Bella Bridal, downtown Durham’s bridal salon. Tre Bella is a family business as well, owned and operated by two sisters, Rachael Price and Rebecca Price Simmons. We hope you will fall in love with some of the beautiful gowns from the fall 2016 Eugenia Couture and Joy collections, and head to Tre Bella Bridal to see one of these artistic creations in person.
