{Giveaway} Swarovski crystal and silk ribbon belt from Bridal and Menswear Designer, Olia Zavozina! | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

Well gals, I have something FABULOUS for you this week as a giveaway!! Up for grabs is a stunning and versatile accessory from Olia Zavozina! Olia Zavozina is a Russian bridal and menswear fashion designer based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Her flagship boutique is in the heart of Music City near Music Row. She is featured in bridal boutiques nationwide and is gaining an international presence. Olia’s Royal Elegance collection uses only 100 percent natural fibers and luxurious fabrics. Creating a custom gown is a unique and unforgettable experience for your big day. All of Olia’s dresses are made to order, allowing the bride to choose her favorite neckline, train length, color and fabric, making it truly a one-of-a-kind gown.

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Olia and her team through various industry events and networks here in Nashville, and this business has major heart and passion. Her work is pure couture quality, but you can still get a completely custom gown with luxurious fabrics for much less than some of the larger design houses out there. Her custom gown design starts at $1,500– and considering the types of fabrics and the amazing attention to detail that Olia puts into these pieces, this really is an amazing value. Olia’s work is TRULY stunning — I’ve been wowed by her designs and the incredible craftsmanship put into every gown. Just check out these designs below, featuring the fabulous prize that one lucky reader will win this week!

More from Olia herself: “Planning my wedding was a disaster, starting with the dress.  Like most of you, my wedding came at a very busy time of my life, I was finishing up my masters while working part-time. With limited time, I wasn’t able to design my own gown and I didn’t enjoy my bridal gown shopping experience.  The boutiques were limited in the options they offered… everything looked the same and it was hard to have a clear mind.  Being a fabric guru, I required a silk gown.  Being in school, I required it to fall in my budget!  My requirements were not being met.  I decided at this time for me to take my frustration from the experience  and my knowledge of business and start my own bridal line!

One of my first decisions about my bridal line was to be able to offer many fabric options to brides.  Every woman deserves to have the gown of their dreams and be able to afford it.  Whether you are conscious of it or not, there are fabrics you prefer over others. Obviously there are looks you prefer over others as well and some of those looks can only be properly achieved through using the right fabric. So with the right fabrics, the right look and you feeling comfortable, the gown of your dreams will be the one you don’t ever want to take off!

After deciding to keep my focus on a large selection of fabrics and budget friendly prices, I needed to focus on designs.  So I started offering custom bridal gowns.  It really moves me to tears every time I’m sitting with a bride who has had a particular dress in mind and I am able to sketch out a design and bring it to life for her within her budget. The bridal requests and custom designs are the foundation of the Royal Elegance Collection.  Whether being inspired by a bride or designed specifically for one there is a bit of each of my brides in every dress! “

The prize:

One of Olia Zavozina’s Diamond Queen Belts

The Diamond Queen Belt is made from Swarovski crystals with a luscious and interchangeable silk duchess ribbon sash. It is retailed at $475. This versatile piece can be worn as a belt, head piece or necklace.

Talk about gorgeous! This piece could be an heirloom to pass down to generations. If you have a very simple gown, imagine the way this gorgeous belt could totally transform your wedding day look! It’s just stunning!
