A runway gradated in red, pink and fuchsia rose pedals greeted the Fashionistas attending the Claire Pettibone 2014 Bridal Collection. From the second half of the 17th Century comes her inspiration: ‘Floral Still Life’. We see it as romantic, modern Victorian.
From the start, the first gown Raven in black and gray tulle, embroidered with pink and red roses raised over silver sequins and pearl silk which extended to a long train was a bold and breathtaking entrée for the remainder of the collection. A long shear train over a silk satin underskirt in the long sleeve Adeline design flowed across the rose pedal runway.
Claire is bringing a lovely flowing train back into bridal with delicate, yet bold, lace accents. The three-tiered Poppy dress, using lace as a division of layers, was a modern twist with a nod to the series Pride and Prejudice. Amber is pure elegance and sophistication with its 24 karat gold embroidery with a pale pink and spun silver embroidery. Unique plunging illusion backs and necklines encompass much of the collection; with underskirts among shear overlay silk organza lace appliqué detailed overskirts influencing many of the trains to the delight of the appreciative audience.
