GATSBY'S BRIDE

Feathers, pearls and lace mixed up with silk and tulle make for some stunning LOOKS  Meet Gatsby's Bride, a collection of gowns and veils reminiscent of pre-1920s and a bit beyond.  Because I often wonder what Daisy would have worn had she become Gatsby's Bride (and not Buchanan's), here it is-- the bride who would have married shortly following The Great War--a bygone era when the rich lived in castles, bogeyed to early jazz and wore a lot of lace and silk.  I poured on the lace here bordering  veils, cascading ruffles, sleeves and trains to convey romance and femininity while using softer liquid fabrics that hug and cling to the body.   These images I shot  at a nearby castle while photographer, Samantha Smith was shooting the other model You can see the editorial here).   Bravo to everyone who participated in this wonderful salute to an era of jazz, feathers, fans, veils worn low on the forehead, and lots of scrumptious lace .   .  .
