Musings: Post Trunk Show

May 28th, 2009 – 4 Comments

Just back from a great Trunk Show in NY at Kleinfeld. It’s always so much fun visiting the staff there who feel like family, and having the chance to meet such beautiful brides-to-be. Our Bridal Director Moreen, made her first visit with me, and we both were excited to see so many brides, each with their own look and style…they’re an inspiration!

Our “Silvia” bride looked like she just stepped out of the 1920’s (but in a modern way) with her pretty bob hair, and porcelain skin…we are doing a custom cage veil for her with the Baby’s Breath edging…perfect!

Another beauty selected “Forget-me-not” and when she walked out in this gown, wow! She looked great in some other dresses, but this really was unforgettable! Couldn’t be a more perfect choice for her island wedding.

Our “Lalique” bride initially came in for “Princess”, but made the switch, because for her, Lalique was more womanly and showed off her hourglass figure. We chose the Vintage Vine veil in ivory for the finishing touch.

The stunning “Chantilly” gown was amazing on a tall, beautiful girl who came in with her mom. The sheer back and intricate beading won them both over, and adding the Vintage Vine veil completes the look.

Kristene” was the choice for another beauty, and we decided the Vintage Vine in the waterfall style was perfect here too…this veil seems to go with every gown in the collection!

A sweet girl from LA (but now living in NY) chose the “Cloisonné” gown with the train. This is one of my favorites, and I am so happy for her and her adorable fiancée! Don’t worry, we didn’t let him see her in the dress, but he waited patiently in the lobby while she made her choice…I’m sure he will be thrilled!

A lovely young artist chose “Larissa”, and she said it is the gown she has been dreaming of…how great is that?!

Petite girls should always look for a gown that compliments their frame…what a shame when I see them being swallowed up in a ball gown! A little wood nymph (petite, dark curls, adorable!) chose “Kaelyn”…what a perfect choice, a gown as delicate as she is.

And a pale strawberry blonde chose “Lucia” with the Baby’s Breath veil. Fair skinned girls have to be careful to choose the right shade of dress to give them a pretty glow. The subtle sparkle and hints of pale gold and silver are gorgeous with her coloring.

These are just a few of the wonderful women I met, and I thank them for wearing my collection with such style and beauty. Now it’s on to my West coast girls next weekend at our Flagship Salon June 5 & 6…can’t wait to see you there!

    Hi Claire,
    I was just wondering what the dress is called on the first hanger in your picture of the sample sale…I’ve been looking for it for ages since I saw it on a video on theknot. Do you not make it anymore?
    I love your dresses very much, I cant wait to try some on in London soon!

      Hi Katharine,
      That gown is called Lucien…it is discontinued, but I did just ship one for a bride in the UK! I think we just have the one sample left, but I am sure if you visit one of our stockists in the UK you’ll find something equally lovely. Congratulations, and all the best!
