Fashion Inspiration: Claire Pettibone

The final designer I’m looking at this week is Claire Pettibone, a US based designer whose dresses I’m glad to say are available in the UK. Her elegant collection really stood out for me for the beautiful use of fabrics particularly the antique laces in delicate shades of ivory and champagne and the splashes of reds in fabric flowers and obi inspired waists. She also had the most amazing backs too, I quite easily could have shown six of her dresses when I looked at the beautiful backs trend.

The collection was called Cherry Blossom and you can see the influence of the East in the detailing of the dresses. I think I’ve found a new favourite designer, definitely one I’ll be keeping an eye on from now on.
