Maria Lluïsa Rabell – Magical Dress Inspiration

This is not the usual post I put up but sometimes there are exceptions to be made. I received an email from reader Claire the other day who told me “I nearly died when I saw these dresses”. Hell, I can see why. Serious swoon-fest over here. I want them all!

The Barcelona-based designer Maria Lluïsa Rabell blends contemporary subtle lines and elegance with amazing technical flair and ability. Unique, out-there and original. Have you ever seen anything like these? They have such a magical, romantic feminine feel don’t they?

Community Spirit

British photographer Dolly Photography may be new to the scene but she sure knows her own passions and one of her dreams is to raise awareness and support her local community. “I come from Barnsley, a very small Northern mining town that is still recovering from the depression of the pit closures” She told me “I have loads of work I’d love to submit, but this one is close to my heart. I did a Rock The Dress shoot last week for Barnsley Hospice, a charity that looks after terminal cancer patients. They have 8 charity shops and wanted to promote the fact that they sold second hand wedding dresses – some for as little as £40 a dress!”

So, she asked her sister to model for her in a gorgeous £40 dress from Barnsley Hospice and carrying a vintage umbrella that she found on ebay for £10. Her hair piece was also a bargain at £10 in the sale from Diva Bridal, Barnsley.

Bollywood Bride

Gorgeous Indian brides and weddings certainly don’t get enough coverage in Blogland – which is crazy because the colours, the fun and the unique traditions are certainly things that blogs usually swoon over. I have a couple of Indian friends – one that is already married and one that has been to a lot of her family’s weddings and I’m always intrigued to hear about them. My favourite story was that one of my friends had to walk around the ceremony carrying a pineappleon her head and when she asked her Mum why she had to do it or what it was about she replied “that’s just what we do” Ha! To this day she still doesn’t know the significance of the pineapple that messed up her hair!

This fashion shoot was sent over by Annie & Benjamin of Elevenorchids Photography. The shoot took place at the Palace of Fine Art in San Francisco and was set up to showcase the glamour and gorgeousness of Bollywood.
