Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
The show opened with jagged edged florals in silk chiffon cascading down and pooling on the floor.
Lavish scalloped beading with an exotic flare, topped of a fluid column gown with drop pearls and smokey crystals. Drawing this beaded pattern would make the hours slip by easily. I know our couples would adore the intricacy here that effortlessly communicates a detailed grace. Imagining this look into stationery is a natural next step, perhaps I shall peruse that thought further?
Intricate laces graced the gowns and headpieces alike creating a bold statement with soft pattern.
The show stopper for us was this ball gown with a bursting rose, whose torn petals fell from soft blush to white. I’m fairly sure I will never forget the moment this creation hit the runway. As an artist I can appreciate every mindful moment of hand sculpted textile and spiritedly swept silk gazar and tulle. The designers’ passion is evident in each petal; it’s expert angle and hue that ultimately transcends fashion, into the realm of fine art.
This dress was my muse as I took pen to paper.
The show wrapped and we were all greeted with this iconic sunset over the water. We lingered a moment; me to digest all the details and record in sketch, Jess to run through shots she has just captured. We lingered in the moments. We lingered in the sweet details of Marchesa.
