Creating the most memorable
Who is Oleg Cassini?
O U R S T O R Y
Established in 2017, Oleg Cassini Australia has cemented itself in the fashion industry as a lead producer of gorgeously affordable bridal, bridesmaids and evening wear.
The aim was to give Australian brides access to the most gorgeous, timeless, traditional yet modern dresses. Whilst the original Oleg Cassini bridal gown no doubt embodies the man himself, under Creative Director Viola Chan the brand has evolved to reflect the style of the modern bride with each dress encouraging her personal style to shine through. Viola’s eye for detail and stunning silhouettes has helped countless brides find their way down the aisle in a comfortable bridal gown combining modern glamour with traditional shapes to reflect a one of a kind bridal elegance.
Oleg Cassini Australian managing director and mother of three, Mandy Daddia, is well established in the bridal sphere, with over a decade of experience in helping brides find their dream dress. Naturally, Mandy’s background makes her an expert in everything bridal and she knows that no two brides are the same. It was only when shopping for her own wedding dress that Mandy noticed something lacking for brides to be, thus finding a formidable gap in the market. The average Australian woman doesn’t want nor feel the need to spend tens of thousands of dollars on her bridal gown - yet she still wants something that she will feel beautiful in and remember forever. Cue: Mandy’s fourth child: Oleg Cassini Australia was born.
Since its beginnings in Sydney in 2017, Oleg Cassini Australia has opened a brand new showroom in Melbourne as well as focusing on our online clientele, making affordable bridal wear and accessories available to all.
The OC team is passionate about providing the most beautiful wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, formal wear, accessories and more using the most luxurious silks, custom-designed laces and sparkling hand-beaded embellishments.
The team behind Oleg Cassini is proud to be in the bridal business and certainly takes matching a bride with their dream dress to heart. Oleg Cassini Australia has been featured in popular bridal publications such as Hello May, Polkadot Bride, Modern Weddings, On Trend Bridal, Same Same Weddings, In Style Magazine, Pop Sugar and more.
