Dior's Spring-Summer 2015 Couture Collection was a stunning futuristic take on the Swinging 60's. We loved Raf Simon's use of colour throughout the show, as well as the layers of tulle and intricate beaded embellishments featured on the more formal gowns. We can imagine fashion-forward celebs like Emma Stone and Felicity Jones wearing these avant-garde gowns on future red carpet appearances.
Chanel was another major show on our radar. The floral fantasy-themed show featured a breathtaking set that made a splash on Instagram—the 300 flowers that decorated the runway took over six months to make! While we weren't exactly fans of the styling of the collection, we loved the use of floral embellishments in the show as well as the crop tops shown throughout the collection. Clearly both are trends that are here to stay!
Everything is coming up roses with this rose-inspired, pretty-in-pink photo shoot photographed by Melanie Rebane Photography. Rosanne Farano-Romanino of The Social Rose served as producer/creative director for the shoot in addition to creating the oh-so-pretty flower arrangements. The hand-painted rose motif seen throughout was illustrated by our editor in chief Angela Desveaux. The illustrations were then arranged into a beautiful pattern by WedLuxe Art Director Rebekah Cuff who created the branding package for The Social Rose. (Yes, from time to time the design department here at WedLuxe accepts branding assignments, which we love!) ;)
We adore how Rosanne further expanded on her new brand by creating this ultra-feminine, pink-on-pink palette and glamorous gold details. Girly-girls are sure to be smitten with the style elements, especially the frothy Vera Wang gown and fairytale-like jewellery from the ever-talented jewelry designer Tara Fava. Stationery details were created by So Pretty in Print using elements of the original brand design. The beautiful chair decals were reproduced and provided by Dance Floor Décor.
