This Gorgeous Dress

My Wedding Gown

I have to write a post on my gown. I'm so proud of it! A wedding gift from my beautiful mother, It's now being taken care of by my Mother-in-Law. Safely tucked away in her attic in the wonderful dryness and cold of Sweden. Best way to preserve a beautiful priceless heirloom for the future generation!

A Nina Ricci by Swede Designer Lars Nilsson. It has made me a very happy bride ! Here is a write up on his inspirations for his work:

From Lars Nilsson, a deep blue sea
By Suzy Menkes International Herald Tribune

The freshness of a Nordic ocean sea blew through the Nina Ricci collection, as the designer Lars Nilsson looked to his Swedish roots. The lingerie effects which had been part of Ricci's soft prettiness were banished in favor of stiffer cotton fabrics. Blue and white ticking stripes or decorative lines of stitching added to the fresh feel.

"A summer morning," said Nilsson backstage, referring to childhood inspirations and his native country's rain-washed blue sky color or biscuit beige the shade of a bleached wood. All that mingled with 15 years experience of Paris couture, which brought the subtle cut of a jacket and skirt that stood slightly away from the body and beautifully controlled volumes. A white broderie anglaise dress overlaying wine red chiffon combined seashore and salon.
