Musings: Still Life Preview

November 20th, 2013 – Comment

The finale of the Still Life Collection at the New York International Bridal Week on October 12, 2013

I am so excited to share my Still Life Collection. It all started with a Dutch masterpiece “Still Life of Flowers on a Marble Table,” by Rachel Ruysch, 1716. In the second half of the 17th century, the art of the floral still-life reached the height of fashion. Dramatic arrangements of flora and fauna, insects and fruits, set against dramatic dark backgrounds exude a mysterious romanticism.

Graceful details adorn delicate silks and laces gilded in gold, glowing as if lit from within. The rich floral embroideries give the effect of a painting come to life, while a few artful butterflies flutter in. The brilliance of nature’s beauty is highlighted to dramatic effect, just as the bride becomes the center of our attention.

A note to our Flagship visitors:

I make every attempt to be here personally for events at The Castle, and so look forward to meeting our lovely brides during Trunk Shows, but my 6 year old daughter is performing in her first Nutcracker this same weekend, and I just can’t miss it! The artist Rachel Ruysch, who’s painting inspired this collection had 10(!) children and a very successful career throughout her lifetime (b.1664 d.1750). Obviously, I am following in a long line of women attempting to balance the joys of career and motherhood, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you for understanding and I can’t wait to see our first Still Life weddings in the new year!
