For several months we’ve been planning a feminine meets masculine inspired photoshoot after seeing the most recent looks at NYFW. I absolutely love this look and have been dying to do something inspired by Alexander McQueen’s after seeing the Savage Beauty exhibit at the MET in 2011. I fell in love with his expert tailoring and fall / winter collection of 1998-99 for Givenchy! Our feminine meets masculine look can be easily achieved in styling your wedding or next event; think about clean, tailored lines mixed with textures that are remarkably feminine. For a dress– a structured bodice with a romantic tulle skirt; cleanly designed tables using interesting textures like leather, mixed with ruffled flowers like peonies, garden roses and ranunculus; notably masculine drinks like scotches and whiskey served in feminine shaped glassware. To me, determining the balance between masculine and feminine is a fun and exciting challenge. I can’t wait to show you what we have in store for the newest issue of WellWed Magazine, on newsstands soon!
