These gorgeous images by Sophie Kaye are from Claire Pettibone’s market presentation last month in NYC and the gowns are to die for! Not to mention, the florals, hair and makeup and everything else 😉 The setting… The Townhouse which is a James Renwick designed masterpiece that was built in 1854. Situated in the St. Mark’s Historic District, the original detailed mantelpieces, stairwell and moldings remain intact, and provides a perfect setting for Claire’s Timeless Bride.
Claire Pettibone has found a kindred spirit in Elizabeth Gopal of East Made Co. She did an amazing job bringing the elements of inspiration together. From the cake displays of Trouvaille Bakery pulling in elements from her Ophelia gown to create a stunning visual center piece, to the lush floral design and her unparalleled flat-lays, her creativity and dedication to bringing all the details together was simply sublime. The team of Faye + Renee really deserve a big shout-out for the incredible work they did through the night transforming the stately townhouse into a fragrant, vibrant wonderland. It was so beautiful, it literally brought tears to her eyes. And we couldn’t agree more… we might have had a few tears in our eyes too 😉

“This season, I thought about what makes a gown timeless. I’ve always loved costume history, and the Victorian Era is a favorite, but my goal is to design dresses not as a costume, but rather a mix of history and the modern, so that when a bride looks back on her photos and her gown, you can’t pinpoint exactly when it was from”, says Claire. “To me, things that are truly beautiful, stand the test of time, so of course that is my goal when creating a wedding dress!”
