IT IS WITH GREAT EXCITEMENT THAT ONE DAY AND SPHERE COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF
THEIR VERY FIRST COLLABORATIVE COLLECTION.
The THE ONE DAY X SPHERE COLLECTION beautifully showcases how designers and stylists can collaborate to create something with raw authenticity that otherwise would not have existed. Driven by custom insights from both One Day and Sphere that brides were seeking more elevated, cutting edge, and detailed options, Kyha and Sarah felt that together it was the perfect opportunity to create. Both Kyha and Sarah have described the collection as the perfect marriage of the unexpected and the timeless, fusing of cutting edge and etherealise. Brides can expect combinations of cursory and draping,lace and boning, beading and structure, flowing fabric and intricate detailing.
We are excited to have the privilege of Kyha and Sarah share their interview about the collection and what went into the designs, how they formed a relationship and how they have both come to where they are today. Both these woman are incredible inspirations and we adore how passionate they are and their love for what they do. Its an honour to share this intimate, elegant, aimless and ethereal 6 piece collection.

How does it feel now looking back at where you both started and where your brands are now, and how they have evolved and grown and been welcomed by the every so powerful and wonderful woman of the world… it’s pretty incredible the journey you have had?
For myself, I am so grateful and proud of how much Sphere has evolved and grown in such a short time. When we first opened, it was on a much smaller scale and we were testing the waters of weather brides would love our style and method. I really feel who we are right now is exactly our Sphere aesthetic. I am so proud to work with the line up of designers we carry and our brides are a true reflection of our style. I’m constantly working on how we can build and keep evolving with our Sphere Bride in mind. Going on this journey with Kyha and One day Bridal is such a massive accomplishment for me personally and I am so grateful for the opportunity. As well as being able to offer our Brides something pretty unique and special.
- I think its so important to reflect on the beginning and why this incredible journey started. For me, it was my own experience in bridal that led me into the industry. I have learnt a lot along the way, and business can challenge you in so many ways. It can be frustrating, rewarding, heartbreaking and exhilarating all in the one hour on any given day. I love being able to work with other creatives like Sarah, how to keep evolving personally and professionally. Staying original and authentic is really important to me, and through out this journey I believe as a company we have always stayed true to this and have been able to share many magical moments with so many wonderful clients.
When and how did the idea of the collection come about ? KYHA
At One Day we work really hard at having really strong relationships with our stockists and love hearing feedback. Sarah reached out sometime ago and mentioned that she really felt she had a modern bride that was after an elevated product. With our last One Day Bridal collection having launched in 2018, we knew brides were anticipating and eagerly waiting for a new range to choose from, so we (sarah & kyha) thought it was the perfect opportunity to combine our creative minds. Sarah’s expert insight into brides wants and needs garnered from styling countless brides each year and my knowledge of fashion and design together produced something we think is truly unexpected and exciting for brides.
What makes you most excited about launching this new collection? KYHA
I am always looking to create something that has never been done before and was excited about collaborating with Sarah on something unexpected. I love Sarah’s keen eye for bridal styling and fresh ideas for the future of bridal. We know brides will love this collection for its intricate details and modern design elements.
How long have you known Kyha for and what do you think initially drew you two together - SARAH
Kyha has always been a great support and mentor for me, so to work with her in this way was an extremely humbling and exciting experience. Whilst Kyha and I draw from different inspiration we found we had a common aesthetic that complimented each other and we knew would translate into a beautiful collection of gowns.
From a designer perspective, where did you draw your inspiration from for this collection - KYHA
This collection was definitely a process of collaborating on feedback from our brides collectively, drawing on each other for inspiration and personal design aesthetics and working with new fabrics and shapes.
From a Boutique perspective, what made you think brides would absolutely love this collection - SARAH
I am so excited to launch this because I can feel that there is a bride eager for something truly unique that they haven't seen before, but that they know will stand the test of time.
And what drew you to each lace, beaded fabric or textured fabric? KYHA
- We are constantly looking for fabrics and textures that are unique. Both Sarah and I identified from the beginning that there is a bride that loves lace but her style is more modern. I am really proud of us for pushing ourselves to explore a more traditional bridal element but express it in a way more authentic to our style.
If you got married tomorrow, what dress from the collection would you wear - KYHA
I would have two, definitely the Portia for the aisle and the Elton for later in the night! The light bounces so beautifully off the sparkles on Elton.
If you got married tomorrow, what dress from the collection would you wear - SARAH
Hera - it's basically a recreation of my own wedding gown, I love an off the shoulder and sleeve combination.

What is the best piece of style advice you could give a bride when planning their wedding - KYHA
Choose a gown that reflects your personality and feels truly you.
What is the best piece of self- care advice you could give a bride when planning their wedding - SARAH
Don't stress over the small things and focus on what really matters to you and your fiance . At the end of the day you won't remember all of the little things you once stressed over, you will just remember that it is one of the most amazing days of your life.
