When I was a little girl I dreamed of the day when I would be getting married. At the time, I fantasized about a white satin dress, string of pearls, ruffles, roses and a tiara. Not anymore! While princess dresses dazzle on some women, they’re far from the only option. There’s the dresses with the sleek silhouettes, the edgy runway-inspired numbers or gowns with ethereal fabrics, like chiffon, that flow as freely as a stream.
Whatever dress I choose, I'll no doubt knock’em dead! So why not commission a keepsake of the most beautiful dress you'll ever wear. Few of us are lucky enough to have Giorgio Armani personally design our wedding gown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a keepsake sketch like the one he gave Katie Holmes (below).
I’ve received several emails inquiring about the fashion sketches in my header.
I’m so proud to spotlight one my very best friends on Toast and Table’s today. Brooke Hagel, a graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, is one of the most talented fashion illustrators around!
