Fashion Friday: Claire Pettibone Spring/Summer 2014 Collection Preview

Claire Pettibone's collections are always a beautiful collection of vintage inspired gowns, and her SS 2014 Decoupage collection is no exception.

Decoupage (from the French word for cut) is the old art of assembling and layering paper cutouts for decorating wooden boxes, chests, ceramics, and decorative objects. 

In this collection, the gowns include layer chantilly and guipure, silk and vintage laces, flowers and delicate hand beaded details…combining textures and treatments for an heirloom collection of wedding gowns.
