Rising Fashion Star Opens in Smiths’ Court Soho

Rising star fashion designer Katya Shehurina has opened a new flagship boutique at 7 Smiths’ Court off Brewer Street in the heart of Soho.

The KATYA KATYA SHEHURINA brand specialises in exclusively feminine, vintage inspired, demi-couture bridal and occasion wear.

A graduate from ESMOD fashion design school in France, Katya gained a wealth of experience from her work for well-known French designers Nicolas Fafiotte and David Purves.

Since creating her own brand in 2007, her collections have gained significant recognition in the UK and across Europe as well as in Russia, the USA and the Middle East.

Often inspired by the 1920s, the KATYA KATYA SHEHURINA brand primarily focuses on bridal and evening wear. Her collections can be characterised as “exclusively feminine and uniquely designed with most garments being hand made. Her creations can be distinctively recognised by several key attributes, such as having a special vintage and delicate feel, but at the same time remaining highly versatile and practical. A Woman by Katya is charming, mysterious and graceful, but also vulnerable and sensitive. She attracts by her overwhelming power, freedom and unpredictable being.”

Katya’s VIP clients have included Jessie J who wore one of her stunning gowns on X-Factor, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, Westlife Kian Egan’s wife Jodi Albert, actresses Lara Pulver, Anna Maxwell Martin, Zoe Tapper, Mischa Barton and Chloë Grace Moretz to name but a few.

Smiths’ Court is a character retail courtyard offering 8 boutique shop units. Situated off Brewer Street, Smiths Court aims to become the retail destination for discerning shoppers in Soho W1. Shops are centred around an elegant York stone paved courtyard. Traditional shop fronts have been installed and painted in a heritage palette to attract independent and artisan retailers.

The courtyard was formerly the St.James’s Workhouses an establishment for the old, infirm poor, who were put to work on flax, wool and hemp, silk weaving and the making of quilted petticoats.

These units are only available to selected tenants with a focus on ladies fashion.
