I'm not one of your 'Trash the Dress' fans at all. Especially those sessions so popular a few seasons back where paint was literally thrown all over and what was once a dress comes out looking like a really bad Jackson Pollock. This trash session at the Hawaii State Fair has to be the exception of all exceptions though. No spray paint or standing waist deep in the ocean for these two. In fact, Chandra and Danny are bringing trash to a whole new level. They chose this multi-color carnival background to celebrate their love all so wonderfully captured and recorded by Honolulu photographer, Rachel Robertson. The result is an album of whimsical and fun loving memories that will last this couple a lifetime. Plus, I'm loving this session because Chandra's lovely dress and floating-through-the-air veil still seem intact. I'm curious though, do any of you out there have an idea along these lines for a trash session? Or maybe we should rename it like a few couples out there have started doing --Could we rethink these into the Morning After Session? Just a thought . . . .
I initially created this space for my clients. Eventually brides looking for that touch of wow found their way here. Draping and playing with fabric started some twenty years back when I did a three-year stint as a bridal fabrics buyer. After that I opened Bridal Alternatives, a custom design studio and ever since have had the opportunity of working with brides who want that extraordinary one-of-a-kind dress. I'm in love with fashion history and re-invention of the past.
Other connections to fashion? I’ve been a columnist for San Francisco Art and Fashion News and have a weekly fashion buzz on One Wed Blog. I founded The Design Project of San Francisco, a networking organization of fashion professionals collaborating their skills and talents on projects. I’m currently working on a book called—you guessed it—'Bride Chic', all about that white gown and very special designer/client relationship. I live with my husband Edgar and Chihuahua Piccalina in Marin County California.
