One of our favourite international designers is Krikor Jabotian, a Beirut-based designer who previously worked under Elie Saab before launching his own label. While you might not be familiar with his name, you've likely seen his truly stunning F/W2015 collection, which is on almost every girl's Pinterest inspiration board. While Jabotian clearly inherited Saab's love of pastel shades and intricate embroidery, his line is far more sculptural, featuring clean lines, shapely skirts and oversized bows. With the release of his most recent "The Last Spring" collection this week, the designer has built on his label's past success with yet another drop-dead gorgeous, ultra-Pinnable collection.
This two-day wedding featured in our Winter/Spring 2015 issue (Vancouver + Western Canada edition) beautifully marries Indian traditions and contemporary design. Pam and Tony had a traditional Indian wedding that was followed by a Western celebration the very next day.
We think you'll be in awe of the all-white, fairytale-like setting event designer Evan Orion of FLOWERZ created for the couple's reception at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia. Christie Lang of DreamGroup Productions provided full-service planning for the occasion, and Leanne Pedersen Photographers captured all of the details.

Blue and white chinoiserie porcelain pairs beautifully with hot pink blooms in this styled shoot photographed by Artiese Studios. Lala & Co. styled the feature and created the lush floral displays that were inspired by the arrival of spring. We adore the table design — so much so that we've already "pinned" it to Pinterest! We’d love to hear what details from the shoot inspire you, let us know in the comments.
