A runway radiated 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,’ which we see it as romantic, modern Victorian. From the start of the first runway model, the first gown featured 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. It was a bold and breathtaking entrée for the remainder of the collection.
Claire is bringing a lovely flowing train back into bridal with delicate, yet bold, lace accents. Featured on the runway was a long shear train over a silk satin underskirt in the long sleeve Adeline design that flowed across the rose pedal runway. Her featured 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 can only be described as having pure elegance and sophistication with its 24 karat gold embroidery with a pale pink and spun silver embroidery. Unique plunging illusion backs and necklines encompassed much of the collection. Detailed overskirts influenced many of the trains to the delight of the audience with underskirts among shear overlay silk organza lace appliqué.
