SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Azazie, the leading direct-to-consumer bridal and special occasion dress brand, announced today its exclusive collaboration with top-selling celebrity couture bridal designer, Pnina Tornai. This debut collection is Tornai’s first-ever bridesmaid collection and Azazie’s first time collaborating with a celebrity designer, with dresses retailing from $159- $249.
Pnina Tornai designed a collection offering a wide range of textures and fabrics that convey the essence and spirit of her couture brand, including Pnina Signature Lace, Spotlight Sequin, Sleek Satin, Fluid Chiffon, and Luxurious Mikado. Dresses will be available in a variety of colors including black, dark navy, burgundy, pearl pink, dusty blue, and a new “Pnina Nude” color exclusive to this collection. The collection includes form fitting gowns, sleek jumpsuits, and sexy short dresses with intricate details – styles that your bridesmaids will want to wear again.

“My calling is to inspire and empower women. It was important to me to extend that to the special women in my brides’ lives and to have the opportunity to dress and connect with so many more wonderful women,” says Pnina Tornai. “My brides are my greatest inspiration and designing bridesmaid dresses is another way for me to support them as well, by creating the perfect bridesmaid dresses to frame my bridal gowns. I have always advised my brides regarding their bridesmaid attire, but I wanted to bring something to the market that I felt was missing.”
Tornai knew that Azazie, as the leading online retailer in the bridal industry with extensive bridesmaid expertise, would be the perfect partner to embrace her vision and couture sensibility. “Azazie is an established, innovative and trusted brand in bridesmaid dresses, and I immediately connected with the Azazie team from a creative and marketing point of view,” says Tornai. “We both cater to a demographic of young women who are savvy shoppers, and we want to disrupt the bridesmaid industry and give them something fresh, bold and exciting.”
“Pnina Tornai is the Fairy Godmother of Brides – not only is she the leading couture bridal designer but she is a celebrator of women in all their forms. This being Azazie’s first celebrity designer collaboration, we were very particular in who we wanted to partner with,” says Ranu Coleman, Chief Marketing Officer of Azazie. “We knew right away that we shared the same vision as Pnina and we were the right partner to turn Pnina’s vision for her first-ever bridesmaid collection into reality.
