I was privileged to photograph designer Joy Teiken’s Spring 2012 collection during a salon-style show at the Grand Café last week. The show featured 26 looks, including bridal gowns and evening wear, inspired by “the caged bird.” Joy chronicled the bird’s journey from caged to flying with details such as crisscrossed fabric and hand-made feathers. Making use of cream, black, chocolate brown and red hues, the Joynoëlle collection felt romantic, sophisticated and adventurous.
Nothing was overlooked – from the intimate venue, fabulous food and wine, vintage decor, stunning models, gorgeous flowers and glowing ice lanterns – at this inspiring and breath-taking fashion event. Even the crowd was beautiful!
If you are planning a wedding or special celebration, look up any of the vendors who helped create this magical evening.
