So you say you haven't heard of Idan Cohen? Well you will soon!

We are excited to bring you a peek into a truly enchanting debut bridal collection. For his first collection, Israeli designer Idan Cohen masterfully blended the design elements he's known for in his haute couture collections into beautiful bridal gowns for the non-traditional bride-to-be, resulting in fresh, feminine and quite unique options for her special day.

Designer Idan Cohen was born into a family of fashion. As a child in his home country of Israel, he wandered the factory of the family’s denim brand and dreamt of an international fashion house under his own name. After becoming the family company’s creative director, he realized his passion was in bridal gowns and eveningwear. After graduation from prestigious fashion school Marangoni, Idan came back to Israel in 2011 and opened his own studio, which rapidly become a success. The studio has now moved to a 4000 square ft. store in the fashionable neighborhood of Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv.

Idan Cohen has made a name for himself with his unique designs featuring intricate embellishments, overtly feminine silhouettes and unexpected details. Celebrities and television personalities have taken note, having worn Idan Cohen designs for special events, high profile weddings and red carpet appearances.

All of Idan Cohen’s designs are meticulously hand sewn at the brand’s workshop and in renowned factories throughout the world. Idan Cohen fulfills the dreams of his clients while catering to all their design needs and desires.
