About this Project

SECRET KINGDOM is a very special project for very special kids. We combine fashion, photography, and fairy tales to create an unforgettable experience for children fighting disease. We give the gift of a day of dress up and the memories that come with it. The Secret Kingdom provides photo sessions with truly marvelous dresses by couture fashion designer Evgenia Luzhina and captured by professional photographers. Each ROYAL princess or prince then becomes a hero in a custom-written fairy tale delivered in a hardcover book, the lasting keepsake of the moment. There is a ROYAL in every KID.
