DECADES


For me 20th Century fashion is the chicest and most flattering of all time. These gowns were all inspired by Christian Dior who revolutionized fashion in 1947 with his “New Look”, a 180 turn out of the gray days of fashion following WWII. Once restrictions lifted on fabric post war, Dior had the freedom to introduce the hourglass silhouette, showing off a cinched waist atop skirts flowing in yards of silks and layers of crinoline. Recently this defined waist has made a come back and brides are loving it. . . .

Just gorgeous.... those full skirts are too die for. Nothing beats a wide brimmed hat and some elegant floral details. I love the romance that goes along with this style.
