Sometimes, in the depths of winter, we all need a little spring. And we could not think of anything more appropriate to bring you out of the winter doldrums than this incredible display of Claire Pettibone‘s “Timeless” collection.
On show at New York Bridal Market, the designer dreamt of a floral vision, that complemented the intricate floral detail, and layered detail of her latest debut. Named “Timeless Bride” the collection is all about a bride who does not attune to trends or modern elements, instead seeking to find a gown that speaks to her own personality, just as she is at this very moment. And this collection? It’s just as Claire is, romantic, colourful and detail drive, and for a designer who surrounds herself, and weaves feminine detail into every one of her gowns, the setting encapsulated it all.
In timeless New York, Claire invited East Made Co to style her vision, Faye + Renee Event Design creating stunning floral details that spoke of a spring wonderland, the textures and pastel hues layered, the blossoms filling every space and spilling over in plentiful abundance, enveloping the models as they walked amongst it all.
Photographer Sophie Kaye working to capture the fragrant, flower-filled wonderland, that spoke more of a spring garden than a New York apartment. With beautiful French renaissance inspired cakes and desserts by Trouvaille Bakery which invited guests to take a slice and enjoy the magic. There were dreamy silk ribbons from EmmaLinh, decadent jewels from Victor Barboné Jewelry, beautiful fine art inspired paper programs from T P D Design House finished with exquisite calligraphy by Shotgunning for Love.
There are few designers that evoke such a play on the senses like Claire Pettibone, and few designers who play with feminine florals, pastel hues and intricate quite like she. But this collection and the resulting showing bring to life a vision that is unparalleled and the most beautiful remedy for the inevitable grey. It brings to life the very best of all that is to come.
Claire Pettibone gowns are available via her flagship LA salon, worldwide retailers and are stocked in Australia at Designer Bridal House.
