Feast your eyes on the uniquely beautiful Claire Pettibone Cherry Blossom 2010 bridal gown collection. Above: Cherry Blossom – silver and gold gossamer embroidered sheath with scattered crystals.; below: Orange Blossom – cap sleeve dress with silver flowers embroidered on tulle .
What I love about Claire Pettibone’s collection is that there’s always an element of cool edginess. A little bit vintage, a little bit modern, most definitely interesting. Like this creation called Geisha – soft ecru and pale pink cherry blossoms with kimono sleeves of cotton and velvet embroidered scroll motif.
This is a beautiful dress with a bright pop of hong bao red and pink on the otherwise understated dress with Mandarin collar and keyhole back. The tassle hanging below the flower is an ornamentation is a norigae, a decorative pendant used on the Korean wedding hanbok.
The beautifully ornate Madame Butterfly dress featuring an elaborately embroidered tulle of gold appliqués.
This gown is called Petals in the Wind - snow white sakura blossoms intertwined with silver metallic branches and iridescent sequins with a full skirt of tulle and silk taffeta. This dress looks like one of the dresses that would look so better in real life.
Akoya - draped pendant embroidery with tulle overskirt, guipure lace neckline, and flutter lace sleeves.
Jasmine - Flower embroidered tulle in an empire silhouette with crystal and lace overlay, and shrug tulle sleeves.
Strapless cotton empire gown with silk ribbon chrysanthemums on tulle. More loveliness at the website.
