From Tara Fay

I wanted to elevate an effortless French style, while incorporating a nod to my Irish roots. Our model is wearing a sparkly studded crop top of tulle and organza ruffles from Rime-Arodaky Paris representing a sexy, don’t give a damn, but meets romantic look. The 35-carat necklace of vintage 1950’s diamonds, paired with contemporary diamond floral earrings echo these statements in her accessories.

 

For the tablescape, aged wooden farm tables bring character with natural greenery of ferns and succulents. The French style is brought to life with elements mixing earthy and rich dark tones. Layers of dotted and petal-like patterns at the place settings modernize the rustic setting, creating an highly elegant affair.

 

The Irish have a saying, “Blue and green should never be seen, except on an Irish Colleen.” However, I feel sometimes rules are meant to be broken. So even though traditionally certain colors are not supposed to go together, unless we experiment with design everything will always stay the same. In our shoot, we casually elevate luxe details like custom calligraphy and layered plate pairings with simple household items to salute French style, while twisting Irish tradition.
