Inspiration: Ianassa in Hawaii

By land or by sea, our Ianassa gown is living her best life in this inspiration shoot by Matthew Ree.  Right about now we are feeling extra thankful for these sun-kissed images for keeping our hearts warm as the temps outside drop. Who is up for a weekend in Maui?

Inspiration: Ianassa by Allison Markova

“On a day when the wind is perfect, the sail just needs to open and the world is full of beauty.
Today is such a day.” -Rumi

Allison Markova is the lady behind the lens for this inspiration shoot. Billowing and beautiful, our Ianassa gown floats across the sand, dynamic and radiant. On the beach next to the lapping waves and kissed by the end of day sun is Ianassa's happy place.

Inspiration: Ianassa by Emily Katharine

White washed wonder. The luminous interior of this sophisticated space lets our Ianassa shine. This engagement shoot is one for the ages. All rustic elegance, no fuss. The open space lets our imagination run wild and gives this bride-to-be the freedom to move the way she was meant to in this flowing gown.

Inspiration: Siren's Call with Perry Vaile

The magic and mystery of the sea was the inspiration for the Siren Call Collection. This styled shoot, by Perry Vaile and Ashley Rhodes Event Design, brought it to life exactly as it was meant to be; dramatic, impressive, breathtaking, and sublime.

Inspiration: Coralia and Ianassa at Globe Dye Works by Love Me Do Photography

Coralia and Ianassa are two very different dresses that were both captured expertly in this inspiration shoot from Love Me Do PhotographyIanassa, our iridescent silk chiffon wave gown, and its gorgeous blue-greens billowed beautifully against the exterior, industrial backdrop. And our more structured Coralia was hauntingly framed by the raw and faded interior at Globe Dye Works.
