The Gilded Age: Bridal's Newest Couture Collection by Claire Pettibone

Claire Pettibone’s newest couture collection is a dream of extravagance ripped right from an historic era, The Gilded Age. She drew her inspiration from the classic Gibson Girl and the booming culture of New York from 1870 to 1900. It was a time when “opulence ruled the day,” as Claire states, at glamorous parties with society’s finest.

The collection embodies the designer's artistic vision of vintage style and luxurious detailing, with an enchanted spirit. Divine romance becomes effortless as each gown’s decadent elements feature the finest metallic embroidery, delicate beading, pearls, and precious silks. Lovely hues of rose gold, aquamarine, and shimmering textiles offer fine alternatives to the traditional bright whites and ivory.

Pettibone’s aesthetic is always feminine and decidedly romantic. This collection will undoubtedly take your breath away, welcome to The Gilded Age.
