June Weddings

I am sliding in this post in honor of June weddings a 'little' late! MINI weddings that is! I am a true believer that miniatures are created out of the passion of memories. What can elicit stronger memories than weddings?
Monique Lhuillier, famed fashion designer of exquisite wedding gowns, designed a replica of her New York flagship boutique for the 2013 Designer Dollhouse Showcase at the Kaleidoscope Ball that helped to raise almost $1.8 million for UCLA Mattel Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute. Spanning three floors, the townhouse offers the bridal collection on the entire ground floor, the ready-to-wear collection on the second and the VIP custom area on the third floor. Iridescent paintings by Nancy Lorenz and custom mirrors and tables add just a hint of sparkle, while the two commissioned pieces by New York sculptor Silas Seandel are truly one-of-a-kind. Taking cues from the original structure, Lhuillier created a sophisticated environment in the world of grey, using luxurious fabrics, furnishings and art to showcase the true stars in the boutique, her signature gowns and collections. The dollhouse includes grey suede walls, recreations of the Monique Lhuillier Waterford chandeliers, inspired by the delicate bead work of Monique’s signature gowns, and organic hammered stainless steel cabinets, made especially for the bridal salon.
So I am ending the month of June with this tribute to MINI weddings; perhaps with a new project? Say Yes to the MINI Dress with a creation of your own! Stop by the site today to do a 'little' shopping!
