In the run up to our Claire Pettibone Designer Weekend we're giving you a tantalising peek into the gorgeous Claire Pettibone Collection with the spotlight on a different dress every day....

For our final Claire Pettibone showcase gown we just had to show you this simply sensational dress called Flora from a previous collection called "Spirit of the Night".

The Spirit of the Night collection was launched by Claire Pettibone in 2011.  The inspiration for this collection was taken from the magical dream world of fairies...

Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the disheveled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame. ~William Butler Yeats, "The Land of Heart's Desire," 1894

Claire Pettibone describes this collection herself in such an emotive and poignant way that really takes you on a journey where you can clearly picture the Flora dress being worn in a magical world...

"It was a joy to revisit the effervescent creatures that inspired this season’s collection. Luminescent wings, drops of dew on a rose, the colorful glow of the sun dissolving into the moon. Glittering sequins, beads, pearls and crystals dazzle and sparkle. An ethereal wedding gown in moon-lit gold and spun silver, shimmers between reality and another world. Night settles in the forest, the moon rises, and the fairies come out to dance and play..."  Claire Pettibone

The beauty and enchantment on Flora is all in the detail of the gown.  Gold flowers and vines are scattered over tulle and trail throughout the gown.  Just look at the delicate use of colour with gold and misty blue detailing...

For us, the Flora dress epitomises the beauty and creativity of the Claire Pettibone collections.  The gowns have now arrived in our boutique, so we leave you now so we can honour this creativity in a way in which it deserves... with a beautiful window display...maybe with the Flora gown... :-)

So, contact us to book your appointment and become enchanted by the Claire Pettibone collection...

We look forward to helping you become a Claire Pettibone bride!
