We don’t know about you girls, but weddings and bridal dresses make our knees go weak. Indeed, it is true that we get butterflies in our stomachs seeing a gorgeous, ethereal gown and we instantly start dreaming of Prince Charming and the big day. And the new Claire Pettibone bridal collection is a great source of inspiration. “When I design a collection I strive to make a woman feel as special as the delicate creation she is wearing, take her to a enchanted time and place where women are princesses and magnificent goddesses. In today’s modern world we need to pause and indulge in beauty,” the designer says.
Just have a nosey at the latest Claire Pettibone 2012 ad campaign photographed by Elizabeth Messina who manages to beautifully capture the essence of the line. “It is one thing to capture actual emotional moments (as she does so brilliantly for the lucky couples who book her for their weddings) but what makes Elizabeth so remarkable is that she is able to ‘create’ moments on a set that convey a real mood and feeling. Part of it is her technical skill, part is her warm energy that brings out the best in her subjects, and the third part is pure magic… that thing that others try to imitate but it just comes out flat,” Pettibone explained. “She so perfectly captures the genuine beauty that I also strive to share with the world, and every time I send her pieces to photograph, I can’t wait to see the dreamy images that come back! As she once said, ‘my camera wants to date your lingerie!’ well, my gowns want to MARRY Elizabeth!”
Claire Pettibone brings once again some oh-so-chic and romantic beauties and dreamy silhouettes using magical details and refined fabrics, perfect for that unique moment in every woman’s life. “It has always been my desire to create exquisite feminine clothing using the finest fabrics and precious details; to combine a vintage feeling with modern style,” the designer confesses.
