The Angela Garter for LG bride Angela Mitchell

I just got pictures back of my new bride-to-be Angela Mitchell's custom garter.....which Angela pretty much designed by herself. Oh my gosh, how pretty is this garter?
As a professional graphic designer, Angela came to me with a clear design vision of what she wanted, and a good one at that. She liked the vintage inspiration and hanging chiffon bow of the "Billie" garter from the previous collection, but wanted to add a strand of her own pearls. She is getting ready to be married next month at an achingly romantic old farm in Northern Georgia, with a specific natural and vintage feel to it. On top of her refined design taste, Angela is passionate environmentalist who hunted long and hard for an eco-friendly wedding gown. When she showed me a swatch of what she had found, an exquisite hemp-silk blend fabric, I was actually very taken aback. It was beautiful. I suggested we do the body of the garter with a natural silk blend fabric to match....... and what resulted is one of my favorite garters I have ever made. So much so in fact, that it inspired the use of all the midori dupioni silk in the newest collection.
Below are pictures of the "Angela" garter for LG bride Angela Mitchell as well as my favorite peice of Angela's graphic design work from her company Light Daughter. Congratulations Angela!!
