The talented Carrie Roseman did a boudior shoot in our store yesterday featuring the amazing lingerie of our very own Josie Jolon of Beneath the gown.
Following are the words from Carrie’s blog post launching a few of her images~ Beneath the gown is…..
handmade couture and fine European Lingerie…
a sexiness that tingles you head to toe…
a sexy surprise for someone…
or just for you to slink your way through your day…
custom-fitted…attention to detail and texture and fit…
the best lingerie from the most heart-felt designer, fabricator, and creative spirit that I’ve met so far…
Beneath the Gown is Josie Jolon.
Her shop is located in Clinton, CT right above the White Dress by the Shore on the second floor. Josie’s collection is breath-taking and emits the essence of woman like no other. Her bouncy spirit and warming manner immediately takes you in and delivers not only a shopping experience, but also personal, caring one-on-one customer service. As a provider of professional bra fittings and lingerie wedding consultations, Josie also makes time to fit the girl looking for that special something to put that little swing in her hips and strut in her stilettoes. Josie is one of the featured vendors at the upcoming Wedding Row event this Sunday 1-4pm, located at 104 East Main Street, Clinton, CT 06413. And I’m so excited that my photographs of her gorgeous lingerie will featured in her shop! Some of the following images will be on display at Beneath the Gown. Get ready for sexy, artsy, and beauty…
the headpiece was created by our head seamstress Penny!
Thank you again to Justin and Mary Marantz for capturing the whimsy of this shoot!
You may remember that we teamed up with style me pretty on an inspiration board contest where style me pretty asked readers to design a board based on a wedding style that they would like to see come to life. The winning board was designed by Bran coprata on style me pretty’s Style Circle.
“Our shoot was held at the Back Porch Restaurant in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. It’s this great little spot right on the water and served as the perfect backdrop. We wanted to throw a really girly, vintage inspired affair that was affordable and accessible on any budget. For the most part, everything was salvaged or DIY. We used vintage juice glasses for vases that we filled with an effortless collection of garden flowers (more on that later), little ice cream bowls packed tightly with carnations and a collection of mismatched found plates (you can also rent things like this). We used the restaurant’s flatware, homemade pies (baked by your truly), colanders filled with strawberries and old perfume and apothecary jars to accent the table.”
Here is my take on the inspiration from a fashion perspective:
We just returned from bridal market and are so excited about the new gowns that we found! Spring 2010 can be summed up in one word- Romantic. We saw lots of flowers and floaty fabrics. All of the dresses were very emotional.
Silhouette~ Ball Skirts and Fluted Skirts
Neckline~ Off the shoulder, V-ncks and One Shoulders. We also saw some boat necks and illusion necklines (that we loved)
Fabric~ Light and Airy Organza, Tulle and Chiffon. We saw alot of layering of fabrics either in the way of tiers or organza with floral appliques over lace
Details~ Flowers everywhere, lace, feathers. Where there was beading it was very chuncky
