North, South, East and West…wanderlust has taken hold, and whether we travel from place to place on holiday, as life demands, or in the virtual world, the idea of exploring will always hold a certain romance. We meld and blend our cultures and traditions to create something new and profoundly beautiful, based on love and a sense of adventure. Fabrics are layered, and combined in unexpected ways for a truly unique gown for the bride.
The Claire Pettibone collection embodies the designer’s vision of vintage romance with an enchanted bohemian spirit. Since launching the company with her husband, Guy Toley, in 1994, the self-described true romantic has brought her feminine sensibility to fashion. After a successful decade creating luxurious lingerie, Pettibone introduced couture bridal gowns in 2005 and so began a real shift in wedding style. The garden, vineyard, rustic and vintage inspired weddings that have become so ubiquitous, showcase many of the designer’s creations. Claire’s gentle use of color, couture details, European laces and graceful embroideries flutter and flow to make a woman look and feel like a goddess.
