At GWS, we are head over heels with pretty things, and the 2014 bridal accessory collection from Erica Elizabeth Designs is just about as stunning as it gets! Every piece has such an ethereal, romantic feel and is designed using the finest of materials, ensuring your beautifully crafted adornment will remain a keepsake for many years to come.
The 2014 collection was superbly captured by the lovely Caroline Tran and features incredible gowns by Claire Pettibone. Everything is so,so pretty, it was nearly impossible to narrow down our favorites, but here they are…
More about the collection from Erica: Memories of generations past form the running thread that weaves through the fabric of our lives, stitching a rich tapestry of love, marriage and family. In my family, my dear father’s passing was followed by the birth of my niece’s first child. This precious cycle, a journey of loss and renewal, led me to reflect on the many brides who have worn my designs, wondering where in life their journeys now find them.
Marriage is a new beginning, a ‘Before’ and ‘After’ milestone on life’s journey. Today’s bride embraces the treasures of generations past while building new memories as her marriage begins. This journey of love, marriage and family inspired my 2014 Collection.
Drawing from the past, I was pulled toward the youthful crown and tiara fashions, worn for centuries as a sign of nobility and aristocratic grace. These special designs, marked by exquisite fabrics and unique textures, are crafted with my signature care to make each piece a lasting treasure.
My designs continue to marry the past and present, inspired by beauty and crafted with exceptional materials, enduring heirlooms to build a lifetime of memories.
As always, I remain inspired by the singular joy of your special celebration.
Thank you so much, Erica, for sharing your new collection and you can see the full collection on her site.
