WONÁ Concept, a Ukrainian brand specializing in bridal and eveningwear, celebrated the grand opening of its latest shoppable showroom in Los Angeles with a lavish cocktail party in Beverly Hills on September 1st.
The founders, Ilona and Artur Shramko, played gracious hosts during the opening event. They welcomed various notable guests, including model and upcoming bride Olivia Culpo, who graced the occasion in a chic black mini dress from the Evening collection. Other attendees included bridal experts Hope LaVine, Courtney Lynn, and Sydney Westra, as well as influential figures in the fashion world such as Debby Salazar, Kayla Caputo, and Jeanna Kotenko. Journalists Corinne Pierre-Louis and Ariana Quihuiz from Brides magazine were also in attendance.
Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity to admire the latest Atelier collection from the brand as models showcased the stunning designs. Attendees indulged in sipping natural wine, sampling delectable wedding cakes, and enjoying the captivating soundtrack provided by model Paulina Shafir.
WONÁ Concept’s Los Angeles outpost, situated at 8600 Wilshire Boulevard, boasts an elegant design crafted by architect Mariana Shylych. The showroom exudes a minimalist, Scandinavian aesthetic, deliberately designed to ensure the dresses are the focal point. One of the standout features is a striking piece of art by Ukrainian artist Yana Litus, adorning one of the walls. It depicts a bride’s silhouette, intricately adorned with lace and beads embedded into the plasterwork.
The showroom’s operating hours are from Tuesday to Sunday, welcoming visitors from 10:30 AM to 6 PM. The dedicated staff is available to arrange personal appointments with stylists and provide customization services to cater to individual preferences.
