Fashion Inspiration: Seaside Bride
Wednesday 22nd July, 2015
THERE IS A CERTAIN BEAUTY to beach weddings, whether due to the raw sound of crystal clear waves hitting the rocks, or the warm and inviting smell of the sand and feel of the soft breeze on the skin. When the bride’s dress is a sea of cascading ruffles of chiffon and organza, intricately embellished with thousands of glittering jewels, all that comes to mind upon seeing her beauty against the piercing sea, is the image of a mermaid. Perhaps it is the modern version of what Ariel from the beloved fairytale, The Little Mermaid, would have looked like if she married Prince Eric…a fairytale come to life. —Victoria

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
