Black Swan Mood Board

Today’s board is inspired by the award winning Black Swan which I’m so excited to see this weekend. My childhood was spent in a tutu and I still carry a torch for this beautiful dance form, some twenty years later. A ballet inspired wedding is perfect for a whimsical Bride…think texture…ruffles, soft layers and effervescent fabrics meets structured, disciplined form. A sophisticated palette of muted pinks and greys…

    Gorgeous board – love the contrast of blush pink against the hard black.

    Ballet lends itself naturally to bridal style- so many cross-overs (pastels, feathers, lace, shaped or jersey tops with tuille bottoms = princess dress…). Fab ideas!

    A beautiful composition. Something so mysterious yet free and uplifting about the ballet!

    Hi all, thank you so much for these lovely comments! I adored putting this together…such feminine style, but the dark aspect keeps the look from being frou frou. It can be quite masculine too X

    I love the colours in this board so much. Girly and dreamy but with a little bit of edge.
