Carla Zampatti Spring/Summer 2011

I am swooning over the Carla Zampatti Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
The amazing thing about Carla's collection is that whether your a bride, a bridesmaid or a guest there is a gorgeous gown to be found.

Soft layers of two-toned chiffon equals a versatile and stylish gown for the guest or bridesmaid.

This one-shouldered, draped gown has me dreaming of a decadent forties style wedding.

The quintessential bridesmaids frock.
Feminine, chic and the colour is supurb!

The perfect reception gown. Besides, who says you can't wear red?

Oh, how I wish the tradition of a going away dress was still in vogue. I would wear this glamorous outfit, complete with the red lip.
Who's with me to bring it back?

Beautiful Bridesmaid Dresses

Styling a wedding is all about ensuring that all the different aspects; the fashion, the venue, the flowers and the photography complement each other when they eventually come together on the day.
This is a beautiful example of when it all just works!

Gorgeous fresh floral dresses come into their own in the garden setting and are perfectly offset by bouquets in complementary colours.
The relaxed, pretty hairstyles and natural make-up of the maids also helps to create the look.

Embroidered stationery

Anna Bond, designer and illustrator of Rifle Paper Co. used embroidery thread and sewed it directly into paper to create the design and then added hand painted lettering before scanning the art for printing.

The result is a beautiful homage to her clients love of homemade.
