Timeless Wedding Dresses: ‘Romantique’ by Claire Pettibone
The Bohemian Rhapsody Collection
“A little Moroccan villa, a touch English garden.
Timeless with a vintage vibe.
Polaroid-soft light and lavender fields.
Graceful, poetic, bohemian wedding gowns priced under $3,000.
Made with love in Los Angeles.”
Every season Claire Pettibone creates a full range of styles in her couture bridal collection including a few gowns priced in the 2-3k range. ‘Romantique’ was created to broaden the range and give brides even more choice.
Claire took some of her most popular wedding dress styles throughout the 20 years she’s been in business and reinvented them for this collection.
The line is called ‘Romantique’ and the full collection is designed and made to order in Los Angeles. The fabrications include various luxe silks, cotton printed toiles and beautiful floral laces.
