Vintage Hemp, Your “Something Old”

vintage hemp fabric on a roll

Hemp. My absolute favorite material for making bodices. I adore the contrast with silk, the way the smooth, sheer, impalpable chiffons contrast with the rough grainy antiqueness of the vintage hemp.
I collect these one of a kind pieces at vintage markets across northern Italy, they are old, sometimes dating back to the mid 1800. They are handwoven, hand spun, the perfect shade of natural ivory. ⁠

After carefully soaking and washing these, we roll them up and store them for future use. They are precious, as no one makes these anymore and will one day be gone.⁠

Bridal styled shoot in the Arizona desert

Bridal styled shoot in the Arizona desert ~ Orange Dip dye wedding dress

Today I wanted to share with you these beautiful images from a bridal styled shoot in the Arizona desert I participated in this past spring, featuring the ombré Helianthus wedding dress.

I visited the area a few years ago, but it was the dead of winter and the scenery was quite different. Hues of grey, pinkish haze, stones and the geometric cacti dominated the horizon, where in these photos everything is green, alive, vibrant, and full of the energy of spring bursting alive. The light and florals matched the fire tones of the dress perfectly, and the resulting photos are breathtaking.
