One of my favorite designers, Mignonne Handmade, just released her Summer/Fall 2012 collection and it was beautifully captured by another favorite duo of mine – the Sloan Photographers! I absolutely love when two of my faves collaborate. :) The new collection is highly influenced by Jennifer’s (the designer behind Mignonne Handmade) obsession with Downton Abbey + her love for Art Nouveau/Edwardian era aesthetics – but most importantly….it was influenced by a photo of her Grandmother at her first communion.
From Jennifer “Created from the highest quality silks, laces, and tulle each piece glows with handcrafted uniqueness. We also employed some new techniques with metals and have incorporated brass pieces all of which are artfully designed and hand soldered together in our studio. Nature prevails in these designs with art nouveau influenced, highly stylized floral motifs and soft fluid forms.”
What a stunning collection, right??!
