Marchesa Bridal Spring 2017.

Friday, April 15th 2016

Kicking off Spring 2017 Bridal Week this year... we entered the dreamy sunlit studios backstage at Marchesa, A collection we're always dying to see revealed, and a fascinating glimpse into the world of this renowned fashion house.  Every detail executed to perfection, threads stiched, gowns steamed, hair braided, lips stained... seeing the creative vision of designers Georgina and Keren brought to life is a pretty magical experience.

This year, it was Marchesa's more decadently beaded gowns balanced with seductively sheer, ethereal fabrics that we fell in love with...a slightly more daring and regal take on their signature whisical, romantic style, and one we couldn't get enough of.  See our full collection review, dress highlights and detailed pictures from the Spring 2017 presentation in The Style Guide.

Friday, January 15th 2016

Mood: Toasting the arrival of Friday with a feminine take on a favourite classic this gently blushing incarnation infuses tangy citrus with delicate hints of whisky and the summer staple of ripe blackberries. Sip from Wedgwood cut crystal at sundown, as the sky blushes to the same shade.

Cocktail: Blushing Whisky Sour
