Bridal Couture

Here are some inspirational couture bridal gowns from Claire Pettibone. Claire is a Los Angeles designer who creates beautiful romantic dresses, such as the ones below;




Chantilly Wedding Gown

After graduating from Otis Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles with a degree in fashion design, she and her husband Guy Toley set out to bring Claire's ethereal vision to the world of fashion. The company began with a luxurious collection of fine lingerie featuring delicate laces and the special details that have become Pettibone's signature.

And my personal favourite, the Cloisonne! I could just imagine walking the stage at the Folies Bergere, or singing a duet with Tallulah at Fat Sam's, (I'm a huge fan of dancing girls and Bugsy Malone).

"A wedding gown has to be the most beautiful dress in a woman's life, make her look and feel amazing, and capture her essence," says Pettibone. Her gowns have a vintage quality whilst still maintaining a degree of intricate contemporary design.
