Decoupage (from the French word for cut) is the old art of assembling and layering paper cutouts for decorating wooden boxes, chest, ceramic and decorative objects. The Claire Pettibone “Decoupage” Spring 2014 wedding dresses collection features layering chantilly and guipure, silk and vintage laces, flowers and delicate hand beaded details. We love the stunning layered lace details!

Claire Pettibone presented today a whimsical and poetic collection clearly inspired by nature’s magic. We are major fans of all the laces and color embroidery. The moss velvet dress was a show stopper.

Some people like frothy Chantilly, others their lace with some texture. Here are 7 dresses with re-embroidered or corded lace that caught our eye this April.
We like guipure lace because it’s a little wild and unruly.
Alencon lace is very sophisticated and adds body to this column dress.
This dress looks very retro and fun.
Monique Lhuillier = Perfection (sigh!)
Off the shoulder, nude lining and tulle pleats for a very romantic dress.
Sooo sophisticated and elegant. We love the tiny bow and belt.
Mermaids are still a hot trend, lace makes it even more exciting.

Colorful flowers, inspired by pink roses from the china of Claire Pettibone’s grandmother, were the signature of Claire’s new wedding dress collection. She even incorporated the gold of her grandmother’s china into some of the dresses. The partially lace and sheer sleeves make us swoon with delight. Plunging v-necks are one of the hottest trends we noticed during New York’s Bridal Week. Claire Pettibone is a true artist whose canvas, luckily for you, are brides.
