BBT Style Bridal Accessory Campaign Summer 2014

Thanks to the hit TV show “Downton Abbey”, wedding headbands are the new “must-have” bridal accessory for today’s bride. Headbands may be relatively new in the bridal world, but they are making a huge impact.  More and more brides are choosing wedding headbands over more traditional wedding headpieces like veils, tiaras or combs. A bridal headband, as whimsical as it is romantic, can create a modern, elegant or glitzy look. They are also the perfect fashion-forward accent for more contemporary brides who may prefer traditional bridal gowns like sheaths and vintage dresses. What’s even more perfect about these wedding headbands is that they are compatible with nearly any hairstyle – from hair worn long and loose to short hairstyles and updos. A glitzy headband will be a beautiful finishing touch to your wedding look, and if you want to go “boho chic”, then adding a head band across your forehead will do just the trick!

A bride-to-be should look for a wedding headband that enhances her overall look. From simple to elaborate, there is a wedding headband for every style of bride! Check out these amazing and elegant Bridal Head Bands designed by BBT Style and head on over to their Etsy page for more information.

Etsy Shop: FlowerCouture- Gatsby Collection

CMMS Studio traveled back to the Roaring 1920′s with Etsy’s shop, FlowerCouture.  Our team built two sets that resembled a Gatsby atmosphere.  We brought models in from the South Carolina Pageant circuit (including Miss Teen South Carolina- Brook Sill and Miss Junior Teen United States- Savanna Brown), models from Model Mayhem, and even our MUA took part as a model in this incredible experience!  FlowerCouture’s owner, Lynn Brown thought the photos were, “Stunning!”  Knowing that we fulfilled and exceeded our client’s expectations makes our profession and passion for photography worth while.

Every time we work with Tess we consistently get great images.  She came to us in need of some headshots for her upcoming Miss South Carolina USA pageant. Photogenic is barely a word to describe the beauty of this girl.  Her confidence, poise, and angelic nature radiate through each frame.

CMMS Studio and Haute Couture

CMMS Studio (Custom Multi-Media Solutions, Inc.), a Photography, Graphic Arts and Videography studio located in Loris, South Carolina has been at the forefront of fashion photography incorporating couture fashion for their models. South Carolina is the epicenter for Beauty Pageantry and the competition is fierce. All the contestants need to submit a portfolio for competition. These portfolios are subsequently used for submission to modeling agencies. Beautiful girls and couture fashion complement both fashion and striking portfolios.

CMMS Studio has been working with Tanya-Marie Design, a couture fashion design and retail shop in the Miami Fashion District highlighting the artistry of these unique fashion pieces. Finalists from the Miss South Carolina USA pageant have been showcased wearing this luxurious clothing.

During the past month, we have seen designers from New York to Paris take their bows as the autumn/winter womenswear season played out across the fashion capitals. Fashion would not be the same without Haute Couture. (Pronounced oot-cooture). Haute Couture is a French phrase for high fashion.  Couture means dressmaking, sewing, or needlework and Haute means elegant or high, so the two combined imply excellent artistry with the fashioning of garments. The term indicates the business of designing, creating, and selling custom-made, high fashion.

 

The petites mains, are the “little hands” of the thousands of seamstresses, embroiderers and other artisans who have produced sumptuous, precision-made attire since Parisian couture houses first appeared in the mid-19th century. They deserve even greater accolade: Along with daring and brilliant designer visions, the most striking thing about haute couture is the absolute perfection of the handwork. The “made to measure” exclusive clothes are virtually made by hand, carefully interlined, stay taped and fitted to perfection for each client.

France has been at fashion’s forefront since the 17th century, when the court of Louis XIV set European standards of elegance, craftsmanship and excess. A century later, Marie-Antoinette’s dressmaker and milliner, Rose Bertin, became so influential she was nicknamed Minister of Fashion. But the first true haute couturier is widely considered to have been Charles Frederick Worth.

The English draper founded his fashion house in 1858, presenting collections of model garments from which clients could choose. “My work is not about executing [the client's desires], it’s about inventing them,” Worth said in 1871. Eventually his label was a copy of his signature. The era of couturier as artist and arbiter had arrived.

Haute couture began a slow decline in the 1950s, accelerated by the baby-boomer youth quake, the radical change in lifestyle that followed and the rise of designer ready-to-wear. Haute couture is an experimental and creative laboratory whose positive image translates into the lesser priced, but still costly designer label known as Prêt-à- Porter or ready to wear.

The fabrics available to couture designers are luxurious and include the latest novelty fabrics and expensive silks, fine wools, cashmeres, cottons, linens, leather, suede, other skins or furs.  In many cases, the design and color of a cloth, may be exclusively reserved for that designer.

Outside specialists make accessories either by design or inspiration.  Hats, trimmings, buttons, belts, costume jewelry, shoes and innovative pieces are finely crafted to complement the fabrics and fashion ideas being created.  Superb craftsmanship, a fresh idea and publicized internationally renowned names all command a price to match. Those able to afford couture are happy to pay for exclusivity and the privacy afforded by the system.

Sea tones are the colors for this season. Deep ocean blue, sea foam or jade green ensembles were seen throughout the fashion run way shows for 2013. Metallic’s are still in high demand coupled with bold accessories and sheer fabrics.

Cmms Studio (Custom Multi-Media Solutions) has highlighted these trends in their portfolio work which can be viewed on their Facebook page and web site and on Tanya-Marie Design’s  Facebook page

Grace’s Modeling Experience

We first met Grace last autumn at the Loris Bog-Off Pageant.  She was a vivacious young lady who loved being in front of the camera.  Her mother referred to her personality as the “Christie Brinkley” of her time.  Grace performed a wonderful dance routine and won “Best Overall Performance” at the Loris Bog-Off Pageant, along with winning her division.

She later came by the studio interested in our “Modeling Experience“.  The photos represent her Graceful, vibrant charisma.
