We love this story from Style Me Pretty about wedding gown designer Clair Pettibone, whose latest collection of wedding dresses – The Windsor Rose China Collection, was inspired by her grandmother’s china and hand embroidered linens?


As she told Style Me Pretty:

“The sweet and simple details of our heirlooms: lace linens, golden lockets, fine china — don’t they make lovely inspiration for a wedding dress?”

The designer appeals to a decidedly modern crowd, and was selected by Facebook titan Mark Zuckerberg’s bride, Priscilla Chan who was married the day after the fateful IPO, in one of her delicate lace gowns.

The international publicity gave her already flourishing business a shot in the arm, as the designer enthused to CNN Money:

“What a gift, you can’t buy that kind of publicity.”
