2015: The Alchemist collection

November 3rd, 2014
If you’ve been following us over on instagram or facebook, then you’ve been catching all the sneak peeks of our 2015 runway show, held October 13th at the beautiful 404 NYC space!
With origins in ancient Egyptian culture, our journey takes us from the mysticism of the sacred scarab to the magic and wonder of the study of alchemy.   Through gold detailing, geode inspired embellishment, and relaxed but powerful silhouettes the 2015 Carol Hannah collection celebrates feminine strength and mystery.

The teams at Nicole Sievers Makeup Artistry and Styles on B hair transformed our models into powerful Egyptian queens.  We’ll be bringing you their perspective on how to translate these editorial runway looks into wedding day magic in the coming weeks!

The team over at Karma Flowers perfectly captured our vision with the decor, incorporating mercury glass, mixed metallics, and a beautiful collection of geodes.

Inspiration Shoot: Downton + Brett Heidebrecht Photography

September 8th, 2014

What is it about a beach wedding that is so appealing?  Well, if this inspiration shoot from Brett Heidebrecht Photography is any indication, it might have something to do with the drop dead gorgeous lighting, saturated hues, and the casual elegance portrayed here.   Styled around mingling watercolors with the natural beauty of the California coast, we love how the Downton gown seamlessly blends the two concepts in a way that leaves us yearning for the salty kisses of the seaside breeze.
