Boston’s Fairmont Copley Plaza set the tone for timeless elegance and opulence in a recent wedding event held in the historic landmark. In return I chose to indulge with my timeless two-toned ruch/striped silk dress- one of my own creations from my first collection of cocktail gowns exhibited in a Fashion TV sponsored event held on February 2009. The simple silhouette was created by combining silk in two different tones and forms, ruching high neckline, low back line, and a striped fitted pencil skirt-like bottom. The creation exhibited timeless elegance and form, even when worn 4 years later! I accessorized with a strappy striped black & white shoe to play off the stripes on the dress and paired them with my trademark ivory sphere-shaped clutch from Reiss. To finish off the look i decided to do an “up-do” inspired by the hairstyles of the women of Downton Abbey, with the help of a you-tube tutorial.
The Bride was dressed in a contemporary couture gown, blush in color, and structured to perfection by non other than the designer himself, Rafael Cennamo. The styling of the brides outfit with the lace stockings was immaculate. They added an element of surprise and gave wedding attire a new outlook!
