About Elaya Vaughn by Kate Pankoke

Elaya Vaughn is a designer driven luxury bridal and accessories line led by Project Runway All Star and award winning designer Kate Pankoke. Since opening our doors in 2010, we have gained international prestige, earning praise for our quality materials & construction, luxurious embellishments, and unmatched fit. We cater to brides around the world who want a couture experience without having to pay couture prices. All of the gowns are made-to-order and manufactured in the United States.

In addition to our highly praised collections, Elaya Vaughn gowns are frequently featured at red carpet event & galas (including the Oscar’s red carpet), charity functions, and acclaimed media publications.

Kate describes her design aesthetic as artful femininity and believes that all women are Princesses at heart. A wedding gown is unlike any other purchase a woman will make, and she is determined to make a bride’s gown just as unforgettable as the wedding itself. Her gowns have been described as:

  • - “off-the-charts phenomenal” – Style Me Pretty
  • - “timeless and classic” – Eric Daman in COSMOPOLITAN
  • - “simple yet still completely feminine and never boring” – theknot
  • - “a signature point of view with a fundamental understanding of tailoring, structure, and essential femininity” – The Glass Magazine

    One of a kind dress from a one of a kind designer

    Kate does an amazing job of reviewing pictures of dresses with clients and pulling out the details from each image that the bride enjoys. She truly listens to the client. From the most knowledgeable bride to the bride unlearned in the language of bridal design, Kate takes the time to explain all the details down to the smallest feature. Her sketches bring to life exactly what the client has envisioned and dreamed. If you are looking for a one of a kind dress from an absolutely incredible, talented and kind designer, Kate is who you should choose.

    If you want the wedding dress of a lifetime, one that the minute you put on will make you look and feel like a queen, purchase an Elaya Vaughn dress. I state this without exaggeration. Kate's gowns are not only exquisite but high fashion, made by hand out of sumptuous fabrics.
