“The design process is not only creative, but exciting. I’m always challenging myself to become one with my clients. I want to design gowns that I would absolutely love to wear.”

  • Katie, designer of Kara Oceane 


Katie’s design inspiration comes from the years of customers, clients, family, and friends that she has had the privilege of working with. Every bridal journey is unique, but one thing remains the same, every bride wants to feel their most beautiful on their wedding day. 


Katie loves to envision a Kara Oceane bride as a hard working, passionate, free-spirited city girl who dreams of a modern and romantic wedding.  


With all of that in mind, Katie spends much of her free time emerging herself in her sketches, designing gowns that will undoubtedly flatter all body types. Katie wants every bride to be “wow’d” the moment they put on a Kara Oceane gown.
