>> WEDDING DRESS MONDAY << KRIKOR JABOTIAN’S AU GRÉ D’UNE BRISE COLLECTION

Today’s Wedding Dress Monday is a showcase of a wonderful collection by Lebanon designer Krikor Jabotian.  The “Au Gré d’une Brise” collection is a tribute to The Wind. The dresses come in gorgeous shades of creams, whites, pinks and golds, and have a real sense of movement to them.  I love the contrast of how glamorous and sumptuous they look against the harshness of the raw frayed edges of the material.  Simply stunning!

A little bit about the designer….

“Krikor Jabotian studied fashion design at the french fashion institution ESMOD in Beirut.

In June 2007, at the age of 21, he graduated and made part of Elie Saab’s creative department team where he worked for seven months.

On August 1st 2009, Krikor decides it’s time for him to spread his wings and go solo. He opens his first workshop, in Abdul Wahab Al Inglizi street in Beirut, which also serves him today as showroom for his loyal costumers.”

Hope you enjoy the collection as much as I did, check out Krikor’s full collection by clicking the link above!

Happy Monday xo

>> ENGAGEMENT SESSION << MIKEY & HANNAH’S QUIRKY NAUTICAL SHOOT!

I have a gorgeous Engagement Session to share with you ladies today! I’m a bit of a fan of red heart balloons and the lighting in these pics is stunning!  I won’t babble on to much as Leslie (one half of Duex Boheme) will explain the inspiration behind the shoot in her own words…..

“Me and my partner Ryan are photographers in South Texas- our company is called “Deux Boheme” and our motto is: “we are creator’s, we are dreamer’s, we are artists”
We are very passionate about our art, and always strive to create imagery that is reminiscent of a dreamlike world- part nostalgia, part illustrative, and always quirky with a bit of humor…

The couple we are submitting is Mikey and Hannah…
Mikey has an awesome sense of humor, and is super enthusiastic about his love for comic books -and his love for Hannah of course.
Hannah is classically beautiful and quirky cute at the same time- Modern Audrey Hepburn meets a oh so casually cool Bridget Bardot…

When we first met Mikey & Hannah, we started chatting about Hannah’s love for vintage cameras and photography- in particular the work of Richard Avedon,
Mikey’s love of comic books , and that during their first few dates they went antiquing…from there the conversation naturally evolved into their styled engagement session, and what we were going to plan for it…
Hannah’s words were, “I don’t know what we’re going to do, but I know what I’m going to wear” she went on to describe her striped blue and white skirt, her bright red cardigan, Mikey’s blue plaid shirt, and navy cardi….
Once I heard this, and Knowing that the theme of the wedding would be nautical it seemed obvious- off to the docks!
…but, being who we are- we had to style it and storyline it: first, for a bit of whimsy: Red balloons….red heart balloons to be exact (since it was valentine’s day)
Second nostalgia: vintage suitcases, and vintage cameras- the cameras were both props and used to capture a few shots in film…
and lastly- we took them to have fun, play dress up, and reminisce about their early days of dating at our favorite local antique store- Renaissance Antiques.
Both shoots took place on valentine’s day- and what better way to spend the day of love then laughing with new friends, and witnessing a beautiful quirky kind of love.”

>> WEDDING DRESS MONDAY << UGO ZAIDI 2011 BRIDAL COLLECTION

LOVE these dresses by designer Ugo Zaidi!  They look like something you’d see in Vogue and I was shocked at the price tag, they cost between 600 and 1800 euros.  I don’t believe it I hear ya say, but is true…honest.  Seriously stylish and reasonably priced too, now that’s not something you hear often!  You couldn’t help but feel like a super model in one of these floaty numbers.  Check out the designers site, they’re stocked in 18 stores over the UK too so not a designer just for the Londoners. Result 🙂 xo
