DECIDEDLY DECORATIVE

I love it when one of my muses continues to inspire me long after our initial collaboration. It’s as if the spark of creativity has turned into a burning ember.

Take, as an example, the invitations I worked on for this week’s muse, Eve Behar (daughter of TV personality Joy Behar). Eve and I decided to go in an Art Nouveau-themed direction, combining vintage feather flourishes with an elegant purple font. (Eve was kind enough to share with us a few personal snapshots from her event, below.) I loved the invitations so much, I decided to make them part of my ready-to-order collection. Called – naturally – Eve, the invites can now be snapped up for your own wedding or event. What’s more, the design is available in practically any hue – just click on the “Choose Your Inks” link to the right of the invitation image. Think of it as getting an off-the-rack version of a couture gown in your favorite color!

To see the work of another woman who keeps inspiring me, this week I’ve pulled together a host of favorite bridal and ready-to-wear looks from designer Jenny Packham. I just love her style – and you will, too, when you see the images I’ve picked! Also, there’s a lot more Art Nouveau-ish style in this week’s Get the Look, so be sure to check it out. Now it’s time to let your creativity soar!
