We’ve created so many invites with the Watercolor and Letterpress combination, but each one takes a life of it own because of the unique nature of the materials.

If I were a gown designer, I would want to be Claire Pettibone.  She speaks a language of art and love all wrapped up in divine fabric and detail that resonates with the whimsical artist in all of us.  Even if you might never wear a Pettibone frock, you can’t help but get pulled in to her magical world. So when we had the chance to vision in paint and pretty for Claire’s runway show last fall you can imagine…just imagine…  We started with a few swatches of fabrics and a muted color palette.  I then developed a floral pattern […]
