A pink hued dress and inspiration board

As we all know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Alisa Benay is doing something a bit different to raise money. She is a dress designer and she designed a special soft pink hued dress for the occasion. Alisa Benay Bridal Couture will donate $1,000 from the sale of each of this year’s limited edition gown, Mirabelle, towards breast cancer research and awareness. Her goal is to raise 100 thousand dollars for breast cancer research by selling 100 dresses. There is beautiful lace on the bottom of the dress that was designed especially for the dress, so it cannot be reproduced or found in other styles on the market.

Isn’t it gorgeous?!! I was so inspired, that I decided to create an inspiration board based on the pink dress. Love this shade of pink…

In addition to the keepsake of their dress, brides who purchase Mirabelle will also be entered into a drawing to win a stunning painting of the gown by artist Stephanie London. One bride will be chosen to win this beautiful piece of art, which will keep the special significance of her dress alive for years to come. More info here.
