Claire Pettibone’s design style embodies a certain vintage romance with hints of a bohemian spirit that the world of Pinterest has fallen in love with. Claire launched her brand in 1994 with her husband, Guy Toley. The designer originally began her brand as a luxurious lingerie line. In 2005 she took the light laces and romantic inspiration of her lingerie into the world of couture bridal and created a shift in the wedding style.
If you have been inspired by this winter wedding season and are now planning one of your own, Claire Pettibone might just be the perfect designer for you. Snow dusted on winter’s branches, and a glint of icy shimmer make such magical inspiration for a winter wedding. In keeping with the festive feeling of the season, this is the perfect time for a little sparkle. Think about delicate crystal beading, tiny sequins, or seed pearls offer a subtle nod to the season.
Winter weddings are the perfect opportunity to incorporate silver or gold as an accent. Weather the glimmering metallics are incorporated in your gown or in your décor we think it’s the perfect opportunity to add some extra glitz and glam. Claire’s designs also include sleeves, which are not only practical but also a gorgeous trend for 2017. Claire has also kept true to our 2017 style predictions by incorporating plunging bare backs, illusion embroidery and impeccable detailing on each gown.
