Since 2001, VWIDON by Carla & Kenneth has been dressing more than a hundred stylish, sophisticated brides each year in Chicago. The unique, one of the kind designs come from the designers’ passion to create their own signature line through the season collections, and the unmatchable craftsmanship comes from the studio’s 20 years of working with each individual bride-to-be. VWIDON is one of the very few bridal boutiques where you can select a one of a kind designer gown, and receive made-to-measure couture fitting service at a single location. (Price range: $2,500~$7,500)


VWIDON Atelier Chicago, nestled in art and design district of Chicago, has been known for its elegant bridal collection and exceptional service for the fashion-forward brides. The atelier showcases a full range of VWIDON bridal collections including its Signature collection and Carla & Kenneth collection.

Designers, Carla and Kenneth met each other in their senior years at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After graduating from the school, they launched a partnership named VWIDON which was followed by their first bridal collection in 2001. From 2006 Carla and Kenneth started showing their collections to the bridal buyers in NY Bridal Fashion Week, and currently VWIDON wedding gowns are available in the major cities as New York, San Francisco and London. In 2010, Carla and Kenneth were named as the winner of Fashion Next held by Chicago History Museum, and the design has been exhibited with the works of legendary designers such as Jeanne Lanvin, Hubert de Givenchy and Christian Dior at the museum’s special exhibition, ‘I do! Chicago Ties the Knot.’ Currently the dress is in the museum’s permanent collection. The designers present their 15~20 pieces collection two times a year, and new styles are available for Chicago brides prior to NY Bridal Fashion Week.
