Celebrating the design + style of luxe weddings across canada, the usa + beyond

White Haute

If I had a pair of ruby slippers I would have transported myself to Paris yesterday where Lagerfeld unveiled his absolutely STUNNING spring collection for Chanel. There are no words to describe how much I adore this collection!  I would bet a large sum of money that the background styling was the brilliance of Zoe Bradley. Between Lagerfeld’s white-out of inspiration, starlets sporting all-white red carpet action lately and Michelle Obama’s billowy WHITE inauguration gown by Jason Wu. . . I’m thinking the range of ‘outside the box’ options for bridal couture in 2009 are nothing short of EPIC! (photos Francois Guillaut, AFP)

Blush-ing Brides

One of my all-time favourite bridal shops located in West Vancouver, BC shared this fun press release with me last week…

"Blush Bridal & Special Occasions, West Vancouver

Well-known as the creator of the modern wedding dress, Amsale does it again as she unveils her new capsule collection: "Amsale Presents the Little White Dress" at New York Bridal Market.

The collection is the first of its kind and is particularly well-suited for a time of functionality in wedding gown design. As always, Amsale remains an advocate for her bride, remarkably in tune to her needs which, this season, are ready-to-wear like frocks appropriate for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, receptions and honeymoons.

Innovative silhouettes combined with Amsale’s mastery of fabrication and attention to detail will once again revolutionize the way the industry thinks about wedding attire.

Watch out, little black dresses…" 

Amsale’s Little White Dress is available exclusively at Blush Bridal & Special Occasions
