Welcoming wedding season en pointe: The ballerina and the bride

I've always been captivated by the ballet. Having grown up in Eastern Europe, I found myself drawn to that area’s live-performance art and like most little girls, had particular fascination with ballerinas.

Timeless and elegant, ballerinas have the effortless ability to combine both beauty and strength.

Rooted in that desire to be the prima ballerina and the spirit of the impending wedding season, I wanted to take all of the dynamic stories and emotions conveyed in ballet and merge them with the traditional bridal experience.

Aesthetically, both themes are explicitly feminine, so the idea was to play off that similarity and give the classic bride a more avant-garde infusion.
