As we do each season, Brides asked designers showing Fall 2013 collections to grant us a sketched sneak peek at the gowns soon to hit New York runways. (Afterward, it's fun to compare the sketches to the real-life gowns they become.) Here, Kelly Faetanini discusses her sophomore collection under her own name, which drew inspiration from one of fashion's favorite trends—feathers:
Describe your collection in a word:
What inspired this season's theme?
This season I was inspired by swans and the elegant layering of their plumes—it's a collection all about texture and layering of soft fabrics.
What is unique about this sketch in particular?
I love the combination of the lace, a cascading skirt, and the simplistic mermaid silhouette. The movement of the lace makes this romantic gown feel fresh.
