BOHEMIAN ROMANTICISM WITH SILK FLOWERS

We are all in love with Lawrence Alma-Tadema’s beloved Romanticism painting Spring, which has been on display at the Getty Los Angeles for as long as I can remember. Growing up I had a print of this dreamy painting in my bedroom so there is no wonder it has been influential in my history of design.

Although my design focus has been on festive metal crowns, my love for the whimsical soft silk flower is always celebrated. This season there are strings of gentle lily-of-the-valley dangle hair pins or long strings of silk blossoms that can be wrapped to form a flower crown. You will also see soft tulle bridal veils that are enhanced with free-falls of handmade silk blossoms all hand stitched in place through the veils.

The beauty of these soft pieces is that they go with any dress design. From a simple silk sheath to an ornate full skirt; the silk flower will always remain an essential bridal accessory.
