Chantal Romano Bridal was established by Chantal Romano in 1994. She was joined by her daughter Oshrat in 2004. Their unique designs are known for their daring, sexy styles, aiming not only to complement the figure of each bride, but also to match her personality. Chantal’s salon makes use of exquisite fabrics, carefully chosen so that each dress they create tells a unique story.

RACHEL LEONARD : Describe the focus of your collection.
OSHRAT ROMANO: The idea behind the “Be You” collection was the desire to fulfill the dream of every bride we have ever met — to be a princess for a day. We have chosen princesses and women superhero characters throughout history and imagined that they came to us to design their wedding dresses, based on their stories and their personalities. Using an assortment of fabrics to emphasize different characteristics in each heroine, we created a collection that truly reflects the inner princess in every bride.
RL: What is the inspiration for the upcoming season?
OR: Our inspiration is women empowerment. We strongly believe that a wedding dress should not only complement the bride’s figure, but it also should her personality and her inner beauty. The idea behind the name “Be You” for our collection represent our desire to make each bride feel that her wedding dress truly represents her.
RL: What does it mean to you to show in New York?
OR: We are very excited to be presenting at NYC Bridal Week! We are looking forward to meeting American brides and aspire to take part in the happiest day of their lives. After being chosen to be part of the Bergdorf Goodman bridal department, NYC Bridal Week is another great step for us, and we are thrilled to take part in it.
