Mother of the Bride & Groom dresses has me engaged in a new exciting creative way. My new learned technique is filtering into current pieces be it for social occasions or lifestyle events. Maybe these are one in the same? When Barbara’s (a long time client), Son decided to get married the first thing Barbara did was call me for her ensemble.She understands by aesthetic and appreciates the work behind it. Barbara didn’t want a fancy dress she wanted to have an artisan piece that she could wear with a simple basic Eileen Fisher dress. Of course it would fit into her closet nicely for other reasons.
” Now, moms are encouraged to wear a look that makes them feel fashionable and confident (with the bride’s approval of course)” a quote from The Knot by by Sarah Hanlon.
I know Barbara well, she’s been a follower for years. She loves blue. Pulling out all stops with a special textile (pleather and tulle) with blue as the accent color. Working around that theme I put together different shades of blue in different textiles, all 100% silk. With my current knowlege of the Art of Japense Draping I began the process which can be appropriate for Mother of the Groom or Mother of the Bride as well as for a speaking engagement, or any event that you may be participating in in the near future.
