Events: Salon Spotlight • Primrose & Finch

June 11th, 2013 – Comment

After many, many requests from brides-to-be, we are so thrilled to be represented in New Zealand! Primrose and Finch, our lovely stockist, is hosting a Claire Pettibone Trunk Show this month, and the dresses are very excited to be making their way to this part of the world! In addition to the samples that are carried in the salon, we will be sending many of our most requested gowns for brides to see.

All of our dresses are made to order with exclusive couture fabrics, so keep in mind it takes about 3 to 6 months for your very own CP gown to be hand made in our Los Angeles atelier. During a Trunk Show, you will have a chance to see the entire collection up close and personal, have measurements taken by an expert fitter, and place an order with a complimentary customization.

Be sure to call for an appointment, as I hear slots are already quite booked up! The shop looks absolutely charming, and I can’t wait to feature future NZ brides here on the blog! Have a wonderful time girls, and enjoy the collection!

Events: Claire Pettibone Flagship Trunk Show

FIVE TIPS FROM DESIGNER CLAIRE PETTIBONE

  1. Take it easy…approach dress shopping with a sense of fun and adventure. If you walk into your appointment feeling stressed, it can take the joy out of what should be a highlight of the pre-wedding planning. You WILL find the gown…you found the groom, that’s the hard part!
  2. Stay true, and go with what you love. Choose details that resonate with you, and it won’t really matter what’s “in”. Trends come and go, but if you truly love your dress, or a particular style or theme, then you will always look back on the day and your photos with that same joy.
  3. Backstory…it’s hard to take our eyes off a beautiful bride, and your guests will be watching you from ceremony to dancing. The dress should look beautiful from every angle, and I love a sensuous back detail.
  4. Incorporate some homemade touches, whether you do them yourself, or enlist the help of crafty or talented family and guests. Things made with love add another dimension that you will miss if the wedding is over-produced.
  5. The one thing that absolutely EVERY bride needs is a one-of-a-kind groom who is madly in love with her.

Can’t wait to see you at the Flagship!

xoxo, Claire

Events: Claire Pettibone mentorship at Otis Part I

May 1st, 2013 – Comment

I took on an exciting project this season (and a walk down memory lane), mentoring the incredibly talented students at my alma mater, Otis College of Art and Design. Here’s Part One for a peek into the design process, from design direction, sketches, muslin fittings, all leading up to the juried show voted on by the leaders in the fashion world. I’m so proud to report that all of my students made the cut for their work to appear in the gala scholarship benefit and fashion show to be held this weekend at the Beverly Hilton. I’ll be attending, and will report back with final show photos and my winner for the Golden Thimble award…tough choice, the students all did a fabulous job!
