Claire Pettibone Fall 2015: Gothic Angels

Claire Pettibone’s bridal collection for fall 2015 was inspired by magnificent European gothic cathedrals and the designer described her bride with the following words…

The iconic angel comes to life, not on the feathered wings of an imagined future, but here and now, as a powerful and beautiful woman welcoming us to Heaven on Earth.

- Claire Pettibone

Influenced by intricate facade decorations and the colourful windows of Notre Dame in Paris and Westminster Abbey in London, the range features ornate floral laces, delicate embroidery and subtle layering.

For brides who want to have a pop of colour on their wedding dress, Claire Pettibone used light blue satin muted with white lace overlays and one of the gowns from the collection even has embroidered details in different shades from blue and purple to soft grey. Her signature vintage laces were enhanced with boho elements like flared sleeves and layered cascading skirts, but also some trendy details such as plunging V necks, bare backs and scalloped edge cap sleeves.


The dresses were elegantly accessorised with gorgeous open-toe shoes and braided hair tied at the back perfectly complemented them. The styling was enhanced with a fabulous make-up that included bold red lips, defined brows and lots of blush.
