What a lucky person am I to have had the pleasure and privilege to see Jenny Packham twice in a 4-week time span? From her New York City Fashion Week début to her 2011 bridal collection, I am a total fan.
This 2011 collection is inspired by the Ballet Russes, a Midsummer Night’s Dream, and 1930’s Paris. It is all about unbridled decadence, sculptured femininity and fluid movement. There are luxurious layers of Cascading tulle, soft and dreamy silhouettes and romantically sexy pleated tulle corsetry.
You may have seen but not known her designs. From ‘Sex and the City’, ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ to ‘James Bonds Casino Royal’ and ‘Die Another Day‘, she designs clothes that make you drool! As if she didn’t have enough to do, she has also created an accessories (bejeweled headdresses, bracelets and earrings) and lingerie line. Both capture Jenny’s glamorous philosophy.
Honestly if Jenny had re-run her ready-to-wear collection from a few weeks ago, I would have been just as happy. Her 2011 Spring RTW collection was breathtaking and could have easily been a bridal collection as well. In my opinion, it was flawless and perfect for a night on the town or your wedding day. I can honestly say that Jenny Packham is my can of Pringles. I don’t want just one.
