“My inspiration is the tranquil mystery of Venice. The beautiful harmony of the gentle gothic architecture reflecting on the shimmering waters.” -RIVINI designer Rita Vinieris
Against floor-to-ceiling windows showing New York City’s urbane collage of buildings, RIVINI presented the beautiful Venice-inspired collection at Bridal Fashion Week. The team from Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver experienced the breathtaking show while sitting across from the wedding industry’s top publishers and editors. We were enamored of the entire collection and are thrilled to bring these gorgeous gowns to Colorado brides.

To start the show, two models – one in a feminine jumpsuit and the other in a wispy gown – walked hand-in-hand down the runway, making a statement more focused on beauty than on politics. Read more on The Huffington Post about the headline-making opening looks from Rivini’s runway show.

For weeks and weeks before Bridal Fashion Week each October, we speculate about what boho-vintage wedding gown goddess Claire Pettibone will do at her always-spectacular runway show. The themes of her collections are without exception creative, artistic, and entirely unique. This Bridal Fashion Week, Claire Pettibone wowed the audience, the fashion magazines and blogs yet again, this time with her Still Life collection.
Says Claire of her inspiration for the collection, “In the second half of the 17th century, the art of the floral still life reached the height of fashion. Dramatic arrangements of flora and fauna, insects and fruits, set against dramatic dark backgrounds exude a mysterious romanticism. The brilliance of nature’s beauty is highlighted to dramatic effect, just as the bride becomes the center of our attention. Painterly butterflies and floral details grace delicate silks and laces gilded in gold, glowing as if lit from within. Oh, the unexplainable mystery of love! Be still my heart…still in love…still life.”
Even the description leaves us breathless! Then, imagine the delight we felt at walking in the show setting to see a long, elevated runway covered in silk rose petals arranged in a striking ombre color scheme, ranging from the palest blush to midnight black.
No detail was spared for the setting of the runway show. Goodies for all guests included limited edition iPhone covers and notecards from Claire Pettibone’s new collaboration with stationery brand Wedding Paper Divas. Decorations included opulent bouquets made of paper flowers and tags hanging from silk ribbon from each chair.
With such a beautiful experience before a model even started down the runway, imagine our eager anticipation as the first gown floated down the rose petal path. The gowns were straight out of a dream….
To the applause of an awe-struck audience, Claire Pettibone took a well-deserved bow on the runway after the final walk-through of models. Bravo to Claire’s Still Life collection!
The excitement didn’t stop there! After the show ended, we chatted with Bachelorette Des, who was in the audience with us. Did you know she used to work for a bridal accessories designer in Colorado?!

Visiting the Jenny Packham showroom in New York’s chic Meatpacking District is always a highlight of our time at Bridal Fashion Week. Not only do we love picking out our new gowns to carry at Little White Dress, but the showroom itself is also such a treat to experience.
At the entrance is a wall filled with beautiful pictures of celebrities wearing Jenny Packham gowns, illuminated by a neon pink Jenny Packham sign. We can’t think of a more fun way to enter wedding dress heaven!
Then you see rows and rows of shimmering, stunning Jenny Packham gowns. No matter how many times we see these gowns, it’s difficult to hide our excitement at this sight! It really is the adult version of being a kid in a candy shop!
As with showroom appointments with all our designers, we get to see the gowns on models up close, so we can get a more detailed look at each gown after we’ve seen them at the runway show. We examine the fabrics, the beading, the movement of the gowns, all the while thinking about what we currently have in the shop and what we think our brides would love.
As we narrow down our selection of gowns, we hang them on the same rack and see them together. It’s important to us to have a cohesive collection of gowns from each season, but also a selection that represents a variety of styles from the collection. The selection, in other words, should “tell the story” of the collection.
We are so pleased with our selection of gowns from the 2014 collection! They are going to compliment the collection of Jenny Packham gowns we already have in the shop, and we know that Colorado brides will love that each and every gown is glamorous and of the highest quality, yet completely wearable.
After selecting our gowns, we headed over to the accessories. We are thrilled to announce that Little White Dress Bridal Shop will now carry Jenny Packham accessories! The headpieces and jewelry work perfectly with Jenny Packham gowns AND with many of the other gowns we have at Little White Dress.
Before we (reluctantly!) left the beautiful showroom – we would have happily stayed for the whole afternoon! – we noticed the photo of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, wearing Jenny Packham, announcing Prince George to the world. Jenny Packham is undoubtedly one of the most sought-after fashion designers in the world; it is our pleasure and honor to be a part of her success, and more importantly, to bring her designs to Colorado women!
Experience the Jenny Packham bridal and accessories collections during our Jenny Packham Trunk Show, January 3-5, 2014! Mark your calendar and don’t wait too long to schedule your appointment for this very popular trunk show.
The team from Little White Dress Bridal Shop in Denver had the privilege of attending the runway show for Jenny Packham‘s 2014 bridal collection, as part of New York Bridal Fashion Week. As we’ve come to expect from Jenny Packham’s shows, it was an absolutely breathtaking experience. Taking place in a blank canvas of a studio in New York’s Meatpacking District, Jenny Packham transformed the space into an experience reminiscent of a walk in the moonlight along a beautiful tree-lined boulevard.
Says Ms. Packham, “My 2014 Collection is inspired by the Belle Epoque era of the early 20th Century. A statement of romantically soft, feminine design, the collection encapsulates the spirit of Edwardian style and the Art Nouveau movement which defined it. Intricate, light beading, delicate embellishment and clean, understated silhouettes play homage to an Edwardian inspiration, whilst romantically voluminous ballerina skirts, graceful tulle sleeves and elegantly exposed backs bring to mind a very modern bride.”
We were able to capture the beauty of each gown in the collection during this magical presentation and are pleased to show our brides all the new styles from Jenny Packham.

Just stunning, right? We were awed by every single gown!
After the show ended, we joined our friends and industry peers in the audience for a reception with Jenny Packham to celebrate her 25th anniversary as a designer. We had the special opportunity to talk with Jenny about her new collection. She asked us what we thought of the show and the collection (we replied in unison, “AMAZING!!!”), and told us that she thought the hair and makeup of the models really came together well with the gowns. She said, “I think the Marion dress is going to be BIG! Get ready to have a ton of brides fall in love with that gown!” What an exciting moment for us to talk to THE Jenny Packham!
