Pnina Tornai’s General Style
A Pnina Tornai wedding gown transforms brides into a sophisticated princess with her signature corset design. In order to achieve the perfect look, she draws inspiration from the construction of ancient corsets and adds a modern touch.

With luxe fabrics imported from Europe, Pnina Tornai bridal gowns range from crystal encrusted ball gowns to sultry sheaths that take things to the next level.
Pnina Tornai History
Before becoming a top bridal designer for Kleinfeld and TLC reality TV star, Pnina Tornai was born in Israel. Although she started sketching from a young age, Tornai’s original aspirations were to become an actress and she moved to Paris to enroll in acting school. From there, she met her husband and it was while designing her own gown for their Parisian wedding that Tornai first realized her passion. After giving birth to her son, the new family of three moved back to Israel and Tornai opened her first evening wear boutique. In 1992 Tornai transitioned to bridal gowns and more than a decade later, she brought her gowns to Kleinfeld where they wowed brides. She quickly became a top seller with her own boutique within the covered retailer.
Pnina Tornai draws inspiration from her Moroccan mother and Egyptian father as well as her personal travels. This enthusiasm for life and different cultures is reflected in the elaborate work within each Pnina Tornai gown. Dreams also play a major role in Pnina Tornai’s 2020 collection designs while she strives to help each bride find their inner princess.
Pnina Tornai Collection History
According to Kleinfeld, many credit Tornai as the designer who created “the modern wedding dress.” In an interview with Kleinfeld, Tornai said,“This style of dress came to me in a dream when I first realized that I was meant to design wedding gowns. I vividly saw dresses falling from the sky in my dream, and I saw the beautiful beadwork and the corset bodices and recognized that this was something special that nobody had done before.” Since then, her style has continued to evolve with luxe materials and daring silhouettes that flatter a woman’s body with an exquisite bodice.
Other Pnina Tornai Labels
In addition to her couture bridal gown line, Pnina Tornai now offers options for brides on a budget. Pnina Tornai’s LOVE label is Kleinfeld’s first diffusion collection that offers Pnina Tornai wedding dresses at a lower price point. "After getting so much love from my brides and brides-to-be around the world that wish they could be a Pnina Bride, I've decided to make their dream come true by creating a stunning affordable collection," Tornai said.
Pnina Tornai lovers can also be a Pnina bride from head-to-toe with her lines of shoes, accessories, and fragrances. She also creates equally stunning evening wear for special occasions beyond weddings.
Pnina Tornai Fun Facts
Although brides know her by Pnina, that’s not her real name. Tornai’s birth name is actually Pearl, which is Pnina in hebrew and quickly became her nickname. And before becoming renowned international designer that she is today, Tornai served in Israel's mandatory military service after high school. Fashion also isn’t her only passion: she’s a gourmet cook and loves gardening.
But the most surprising fun fact of all is that Kleinfeld originally rejected her designs, reportedly feeling that her gowns were too sexy.
