Fleur Lumineuse

Dear Diary,

Happy 2018! The planning of the new year is off to a great start. Unlike traditional designers, who design seasonal collections, I design each garment specifically for the individual client. However, this year I wanted to convey a strong message and a clear point of view. I have always been inspired by florals, they are Mother Nature's gift to the earth.

Many flowers bloom for only a few weeks and they tend to be short lived. At their peak, flowers are delicate, colorful, and frequently sweet-scented. From these qualities emerge the symbolic meanings of flowers and, in some cultures, floral goddesses.

Flowers represent life and death- a seed is planted and as her roots grow her stem stretches up, pushing through the earth, stretching her petals to reach the sun. After she has spent her time in the sun, her petals dry and return to the earth so that she can repeat the bloom cycle again in the spring.

With these ideas in mind I move forward in 2018 with excitement to bring you some inspiring and refreshing ideas for the new wedding season. Expect to see shots of color and floral printed wedding dresses coming out of this little atelier, the inspiration boards below are a peek of what's to come.
