Los Angeles based designer Claire Pettibone is a master at creating truly feminine and romantic gowns. Specialising in gowns with lace and beading details, she makes truly unique pieces that often have a vintage quality yet modern references. Pettibone states that "A wedding gown has to be the most beautiful dress in a woman's life, make her look and feel amazing, and capture her essence. When I create a dress, it's all about the fabric and the woman, and how these elements are combined to enhance each other". Working exclusively with couture European embroideries and laces she confesses that “so many brides want an intimate and individual feeling for their wedding, and the dress really sets the tone". Pettibone has created gowns for ceremonies in castles, forests, beaches and gardens in addition to the traditional church and hotel ballroom. Not only does she create amazing gowns but she also has a simply exquisite lingerie collection made from the finest laces and silks that would be the perfect addition to a wedding day outfit.
