Our first destination was inspired by the romantic island of Capri where we brought in soft colors and dreamy fabrics.
As friend of The White Dress and event co-creator, Candice Coppola of Jubilee Events, is far more eloquent than I, I will allow her to describe the inspiration that she has created in her own words~
"What do you think of when you think of the great north east? Shades of white and blue, a breezy and cool shoreline, nautical details (stripes/seersucker, shipping knots, sail cloth), Adirondack chairs, clams, oysters and lobster, changing of the seasons, matching pearl necklaces and earrings, Federal Style architecture, the epic blue blazer… Martha’s Vineyard, Kennebunkport, Watch Hill, The Cape and of course nearly every town on the Connecticut shoreline. One thing I love about New England (aside from all those things) is that it can inspire so many different styles— and we intend to use none of the above.
Our muse is found in one of my favorite fashion brands and icons: kate spade. To me, kate is infinitely preppy, feminine, classic and, to put it simply, perfect. What could be more New England than that? With her lady-like silhouettes, high heels, bright lipstick and baubles, kate spade embodies everything about my favorite New England fashion icon, Jackie Kennedy— who was the epitome of the classic look with a modern twist."
"We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for this look. If you are a New England lovin’ kate spade gal like me, be inspired by bright colors, simple patterns, chunky jewels, color blocking, a bit of sparkle and tailored fabrics. Their brand is so consistent in everything they put together, from the classic and sleek shapes of their staple hand bags to the cheeky little message waiting for you in your new box of perfume. kate spade is about being pretty and fun!"
