“In today’s world of selfies and smartphone cameras, Rita Vinieris reflected on what life was like before cameras. She came across the process of photograms, the process of creating a photographic image without the use of a camera, resulting in a negative shadow image. Thus for her spring Rivini collection, she combined that idea along with 3-D printing to create beautiful dresses done in textural patterns and 3-D embroideries. A hand-beaded gown was worked in nude tulle layered over chiffon and silk charmeuse, its intricate beadwork creating a 3-D effect. A variety of dresses were also produced via 3-D printers, including a strapless gown in organza, tulle and leather.

In a humorous twist — and a smart marketing move — the models lined up at the end of the show and took Instagram selfies and photos of the front row.” – Women’s Wear Daily

See below for some of our favorite gowns from Rivini’s Spring 2015 collection… and a selfie from our own CBA girls at market last month!

Happy Easter to all of our past, current, and future brides – and to all of our family and friends! As the weather has begun to warm up in the DC area, we have also begun to sport some pastel hues in our everyday wear here at CBA. We love the ideas of incorporating such hues in a Spring wedding. So with that in mind, check out the inspiration boards that we have created to touch on of the soft, muted, vibe of this holiday:
