Friday Fashion featuring Houghton

I absolutely love design; alive or still, design moves us, inspires us and produces a response, both beautiful and wonderful. For me design is the accumulation of a fluid and creative outpouring that results in a finished form. Recently, bridal gowns have taken on this concept of a fluid design moving in a aspiring direction both accessible and attainable for many brides with varying budgets and style. I have curated a list of designers/brands each in a fashion that you should take notice of – not just for the finished product but for the unique aspects that make up the styles, business and ultimately the emotion that we feel enough to say “this is my dress.” Follow along as I'll be sharing my favorite designers and tips on how to coordinate your look with your event from decor to flowers! I do my best to credit my sources as I believe every creative deserves credit for their work. So don't be shy and feel free to comment below and let me know which ones are your favorites! This week's featured designer is...


Nominated for the Caleres St. Louis Fashion Fund Emerging Designer award in October 2015 and named a Fashion Group International 2015 Rising Star, designer Katharine Polk designs and produces her collections in NYC. The idea behind the bridal collection is driven by the woman who wants to get married in something simple and sexy. The pieces are inspired by Bianca Jagger and Audrey Hepburn []

Why I love Houghton: Houghton is committed to being made in America. Offering a juxtaposition of timeless style and elegant minimalism, the Indie bride will find inspiration from Houghton’s range of fabrics and silhouettes – gowns, short dresses, jumpsuits, skirts, blouses and tailored suits. 

How to style your Houghton dress or Pantsuit: Stacked heels are the newest trend in fashionable feet and adding a great pair a chic blocked heals will add to your effortless style. Don't forget your accessories! Pair your dress with geometric shaped earrings or a bold cuff and a statement ring. Effortlessly cool in minutes.

What is the Houghton bride's floral style? She is minimal, organic and loves cutting edge design. Try using snake plants, palm leaves, monstera leaves, similax, or any monochromatic (one color story) as your foliage of choice throughout your wedding. Adding greenery brings texture and a high end style to your wedding.
