Calling this gown "Peace," the designer drew inspiration from the Woodstock era—an iconic moment in American history that embodied modern Bohemia. "I was inspired by various cities and neighborhoods from Cannes to Park Avenue, Tribeca to Tokyo, and even Woodstock, each location represents a feeling and a style which is very diverse," says the designer. "I wanted all the designs to reflect the mood of those places and for each piece to be unique so that brides everywhere could find something special in it for them." To achieve this feeling, the collection features hand-painted silver leaf on organza, Swarovski crystals, silk Mikado, silk taffeta, and silk cording.
