This year we had the pleasure of attending several shows during Bridal Market. One of our favorite’s was the Claire Pettibone, “Spirit of the Night” 2011 runway show. Inspired by her 3 old daughter, the designer chose fairies as the theme of the show. The scene was magical, with a picturesque backdrop of a forest scene, little “fairies” with luminescent wings, serving signature cocktails, and a plethora of sparkly and timeless gowns in shades of ivory, shimmery silver, and pink. Oh, and how could we forget…on each chair was a swag bag filled with goodies, including luxury lingerie from Claire Pettibone’s Butterfly line, and eco friendly smashbox lipgloss! Gotta love it.
“I can’t remember a time before fairies. I would play for hours in the meadows and streams of my childhood, making dresses of leaves and petals for the spirits I imagined lived in the woods. One of my favorite childhood books was called The Fairy Circus, written in 1933. It had been my grandmother’s, then my mother’s, and now I am sharing it with my little Lorelei. The gorgeous illustrations of the fairy queen seemed so magical and luminous…just the way I imagine a bride to be on her wedding day.” –Claire Pettibone
