PERTH BRIDAL DESIGNER COUTURE BRIDAL GOWN WEDDING DRESS AUSTRALIA
"I believe every bride is entitled to look and feel her most beautiful on her wedding day without blowing the budget!" Kalvin Chow - Director & CEO of CIZZY Bridal Australia + founder of Zavana Bridal

"My journey in the wedding industry began over a decade ago when my father created CIZZY Bridal. I followed in his footsteps and took over as director and CEO of the business. I purchased a bridal boutique where brides came to purchase their custom CIZZY gowns. As a boutique owner I quickly identified a gap in the market for luxury wedding gowns at an affordable price. Not all brides have a massive budget but all brides want to look and feel their most beautiful on their wedding day.

With the realisation that I could make a difference in the industry I sold the bridal boutique to focus my attention on bridal fashion design. I launched Zavana Bridal in 2015 from my desire to make luxury wedding gowns available to all women.

I believe every bride is entitled to look and feel her most beautiful on her wedding day without blowing the budget! I am very excited to announce that we will launch Zavana Couture in 2019 - our premium label using exquisite laces from Europe." Kalvin tells.

➳ What can ZAVANA BRIDAL offer a Bride to-be for their Wedding day? Zavana brides feel confident and glamorous on their wedding day. All eyes are on her as she walks down the aisle in her Zavana gown.

➳ Did you always know that you wanted to design Bridal couture? Not at all. Before I took over my fathers bridal business I was working in finance. Being a part of such a feel good industry where you actually make a positive impact on someone’s life is much more rewarding than selling credit cards.

➳ What keeps you inspired along the way? Launching a now globally recognised bridal label that many brides across the world choose to wear on their most special day is what keeps me moving forward and inspires me to work harder.When I receive comments & photos from a Brides wedding in her Zavana gown I feel so privileged to be a part of her special day in some way. Working in the bridal fashion industry is not just about fashion it is about creating memories & realising dreams.

➳ Do you have any stories that you would like to share from your experiences? Just several years ago I was working from the back of a garage with myself and just one colleague. We have since expanded into a young vibrant team of 15 and Zavana Bridal is now an internationally recognised bridal label. Everyday I look forward to working with a young team of talented & motivated individuals to make a brides dream gown a reality. I’m very proud to say that we have our own production facility where the talented team hand make and hand bead all our brides wedding gowns.

➳ What advice would you offer to a Bride that is just starting out on their search for the perfect Wedding dress? There is a beautiful quote by Michael Faudet.

“Nobody knows your heart better than you. Trust your instincts. Never let anyone cast a shadow over your sunshine” When you find the dress you will know. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to be you!

➳ What is the best part about what you do: My job has challenged me in many ways & has helped me grow as a person. I used to have a lot of anxiety around travelling but with my job requiring me to exhibit the new collections at trade shows around the world, I was forced to travel and get out of my comfort zone. Now I love travelling and exploring new countries that I would never have even thought to visit!
