I quietly observe trends, but when it comes to bridal fashion or event design, I do not believe that trends should ultimately drive the market
The fairytale element is so very important, but there can be a careful line to walk between couture and practicality.
This year, I was so very honored to have been invited by Solutions Bridal and The Ritz Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes to design their annual Bridal Fashion Show (#SBFashionShow. You’ll want to look that hashtag up on your social channels! *wink) for the third year in a row.
This year, we showcased the designs of Erin Cole who embodies the spirit of the modern woman/bride today. The dazzling show was hosted on the new DaVinci Lawn at The Ritz Carlton, and the evening was picture perfect!

The collection celebrates the inner fire of a woman and her desire to be naturally glamorous and sensuous. A woman who is complex and has many layers and textures of her personality and individual style. The Erin Cole Collection was created through a composition of sheer, layered, natural fabrics, soft hues, whimsical lace, and intricate embroidery.
Designing and executing beautiful productions like this most certainly takes a village, so please allow me to introduce to you MY VILLAGE!
