Claire la Faye is one of my favorite bridal designers because she creates gowns that are unique, beautiful, romantic and simply lovely. Her work screams glam without all the drama and glitz, which is hard to come by. I have never worn one of her dresses but I can imagine you feel like a queen floating on clouds. Maybe one day I will have the honor but until then, I am in awe.
Graduating from Parsons School of Design in NYC, Claire’s career evolved from a line of reconsructed tee’s and soon enough, success was knocking at her door. Because her bridal line is so skillfully made and uniquely created, you wouldn’t think she entered the wedding curcuit just two years ago. But thanks to her, non traditional brides everywhere can wear her whimsical pieces and not only feel on the top of the world but prove like heavan is a place on earth.
Today Claire lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Here are some of my favorite gowns that are simply irresistable.
There are so many places to look for a wedding dress and thousands of designers out there who are talented. Its just a matter of doing your research and finding that one special dress you love. One of my favorite designers is UK mastermind, Jenny Packham. I love her gowns because they have a vintage flair and impeccable detail. If you don’t know by now, I feel it all comes down to the details. If you agree, than Packham’s designs will blow your mind.
Here are my faves from her collections. Hope they inspire all you brides out there. Maybe one day I will get to try one one. In my dreams!
