Illustrations: The Fairy Circus, Arthur Rackham
I can’t remember a time before fairies. I would play for hours in the meadows and streams of my childhood, making dresses of leaves and petals for the sprites I imagined lived in the woods. One of my favorite childhood books was called The Fairy Circus, written in 1933. It had been my grandmother’s, then my mother’s, and now I am sharing it with my little Lorelei. The gorgeous illustrations of the fairy queen seemed so magical and luminous…just the way I imagine a bride to be on her wedding day.
There is one week left til our bridal runway show in New York and we are unable to keep our excitement inside the design studio anymore! From now til the day of the show, we are sharing a few of Claire’s inspiration and behind the scene photos.
Expect to see enchanting colors on the runway as our Spring 2011 theme is inspired by mystical fairies!
