This is it, the moment that months of preparation and anticipation have led up to. On March 21st, 2016, Emily Kotarski Bridal Studio opened its doors at 236-D King Street for the first time with a grand opening celebration during Charleston Fashion Week.



Emily Kotarski, the namesake designer, specializes in semi-custom designs. Have you ever found a dress with the most perfect silhouette, but with a few details that you were uncertain about? Or maybe the lace is incredible, but there is a style that better suits you? At Emily Kotarski Bridal Studio, brides collaborate with the designer throughout the process; they create the dress they’ve been envisioning. Brides choose from numerous silhouettes, necklines, bodices, fabrics, and embellishments to develop a gown that will make them feel their best on that special day.

At the mid-morning opening, brides, their family members, and industry professionals excitedly browsed Emily Kotarski’s custom bridal collection while enjoying chilled mimosas and the electric atmosphere. As people looked around and enjoyed themselves, Emily Kotarski was there to answer any questions about the untraditional design process and to celebrate the brides-to-be!

Emily welcomes brides to bring family members or friends to share in this special process. Upon the conclusion of the opening event, Emily Kotarski Bridal Studio is now open for appointments!
