First off I want to thank all my 2014 brides near and far--some traveling long distances to work with me. Thank you too for your personal visions of how you pictured yourselves wearing my designs.
My 2014 collections were about lots of lace and tulle, full skirts and incorporating the Boho style into my brand. You can't get any more dramatic than adding sweep trains to most of the gowns--that of which I did--but rest assured, you can always order your fave sans the train if you don't want one. I pray this year for the time and patience to get better at social media so I can bring you some stunning look books--you know, those gemmie digital mags that have pages with swiping sound effects? I also want to take this time to thank all the very talented photographers and other wedding profs who made these images you see here a reality. I have to say, 2014 was a fabulous year for shooting editorials. Though our themes and titles weren't as storytelling as years past (City Chic, Wildflowers, Classic to Cutting Edge) the photography and locales were definitely beyond inspiring and just plain swoon over it gorgeous!Above and Below: The Angelique Dress is light, airy and romantic, a swirl of white tulle and Chantilly laces. The skirt is asymmetrically tiered in a border of lace falling into a sweep train in the back. Lined in silk Habotai.
Above and Below: The Isobella Dress sports a square neckline and has entredeux laces over Chantilly lace on the front bodice. Full tulle skirt has a sweep train.Below: The Shayla Dress--Inspiration for this dress came from envisioning a delicate lace on a V-Neckline opening up a beautiful decolletage. Also running around in my head was a whisper of lace underneath a semi-full skirt of tulle fanning out in a generous train. Created in Chantilly lace and blush tulle, the Shayla Dress was designed for the bride zeroing in on a hopelessly romantic look sans all the volume and petticoats.
Above and Below: The Lila Dress--This dress flaunts the beauty of an asymmetrical neckline in white shirred tulle over a Chantilly lace bodice with full gathered skirt in tulle. Dappled in floral cutouts of lace, a continuous border falls into a train. The underskirts are made of silk Shantung and habotai. Covered shantung buttons line all the way down the back of the bodice and handmade silk roses decorate the shoulder.
Above: The Alexandra Dress has an asymmetrical neckline and is a soft confection of embossed chiffon lined in silk crepe. The side waist and back shoulder have delicate drapes of flowing silk gauze (lighter than chiffon) anchored with a cluster of hand-rolled florals.
Above: The Charlotte Dress---This was created out of a lace I found that I really fell head over heels in love with. The hand on it is so light. It has a fitted Chantilly lace bodice with V-neckline atop a full skirt with lace border at the hemline. Custom covered buttons line the back. Again, this lace has an absolutely gorgeous texture, ecru in shade, it has a sheen making it the perfect candidate for evening and Fall/Winter weddings. This dress can be ordered with or without a sweep train.
