Last week, New Jersey Bride editor Molly Tully and I found ourselves sitting right up front at the magical Claire Pettibone runway show during New York Bridal Week. The runway was covered with romantic pink rose petals and the stage was set with gorgeous goddess-themed artwork. There was an air of expectation, greetings among wedding industry glitterati (including Randy Fenoli) and hundreds of cameras awaiting the appearance of the first model.
The show was, in a word, ethereal. And here are my top 8 picks for the best Claire Pettibone wedding gown details:
- Long, illusion netting sleeves with delicate lace detailing, especially at the neck and at the wrists.
3. Open back with a criss-cross of artistic lace straps, with a single, short dangling length of the same lace. (What a look when you’re walking down the aisle!) The back details coordinate with the romantic lace pattern throughout the dress.
