As you know we are working on a new wedding collection for 2013. Here are a few snaps from the toile shoot we did last week. You can expect a return to our hand finished aesthetic; folding and pleating 3D shapes. These photographs are of the dresses in their mock-up stage in the studio but we wanted to share them on the blog to get you excited about what is to come for 2013!

 

The KD Wedding head piece.

Studio Loves

 

Everyone has loved the headpiece we used on the editorial shoot, I made it using faux flowers believe it or not! Most customer queries thought the piece was made using real flowers. It is simply pinned into the hair using hair grips and a little back combing. I think these look stunning on both the bride and the bridesmaid – the bridesmsaids could have different colours and slightly smaller flowers, all headpieces are made bespoke and to order.
