Provo Fashion Week!

The event we were all waiting for...

Provo Fashion Week!

PFW was October 10th and 11th. Everything at the event turned out beautifully! So many amazing designers, makeup artists, hairstylists, models, and guests. There were so many looks I loved from so many designers, so when I have a little more time, I'll post some of my favorites.

In the meantime, here are the gowns from my line!

First up, Lindsay in a flowy green chiffon dress with a draped "cold shoulder" sleeve.

Next up, my beautiful sister Elise's very own wedding gown! A sleek, modest, silk 4-ply gown with godets through the skirt, beaded belt, and draped beading across the V back.

This dress, worn by Lindsay and Kaiti, was a favorite at PFW...a gorgeous and simple rust chiffon gown with a ridiculously beaded caplet to go with it. 

This little gold dress had a minor malfunction after the first show, but we were able to get a shot of it.

This flowy wedding dress has the most gorgeous lace on the bodice that pictures just don't do justice.  It's still a stunner! Kristen looked so amazingly elegant...

This little fringe number, modeled by Brittany, was so fun! The lace was from my grandmother's collection - it was originally white, but I dyed it a pretty rust color. I was also lucky enough to find this 30 inch great is that?

This next wedding dress, modeled by Stevie, was so soft and slinky. The front was simple and elegant. The back of the dress though, is where the real magic happened!

This little green "petal dress", as I call it, is the one that I most want to wear. I would go everywhere in it! Brittany looks better in it than I would though, so we'll let her do the modeling. The bodice is actually an upholstery fabric, and the skirt is hand cut silk 4-ply that I dyed to various shades of green to give this ombre effect.

Last but not least is Alexis in this soft lace and English net wedding dress with a sheer lace back and split flutter sleeve. It was finished off with pearl buttons down the back.

Isn't this photo absolutely fabulous! Thank you Endless Photography!

A big thank you to all of the people who supported and helped my with Provo Fashion Week 
this time around!

Like I said, stay tuned for some of my favorite looks from the other amazing designers!

Provo Fashion Week - Fall 2014 Sneak Peek!

This Fall's Provo Fashion Week starts a week from today! Get your tickets!

I recently did a photo shoot with a few of the gowns from my line with Braadyn Ashley Photography and I couldn't be more excited about it. The results are absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks to my amazing models, Brittany and Alexis for being not only babes, but troopers. I was freezing my booty off and I was in a sweater; but they just kept telling me, "It's really not that cold," (it was that cold).

Also, a big thank you to my sister Cherisa, who did the makeup for these lovely girls. Florals courtesy of Miriam at Foxglove Flower and Gifts.

More to come! But, if you want to see them sooner, come to Provo Fashion Week - my line will be in every show.

Elise's Gown

My amazingly gorgeous sister got married over the summer and I couldn't have been more excited for her! I was also thrilled that she trusted me with the most important dress of her life.

She chose a gorgeous silk 4-ply from Tissu Fabrics in Salt Lake City for her gown. I was completely in love with this fabric!

The dress we sketched out was super simple and elegant and perfect on her tall, modelesque figure.

Love my beautiful little sister...they are a great couple and their wedding was a gorgeous day!
