This fun spring inspired shoot features a new gown we may put into our fall 2015 collection.  This non traditional gown is for a confident bride; it is two-pieces, highlights the waist, ankle length made from guipure lace.  We would love your thoughts, should we make this gown available?

A pretty talented team lent their efforts to this shoot.

Provo Fashion Week 2015

In February Illume had the opportunity to be a part of Provo Fashion Week!

Taking place in Provo Utah, this event brings together local independent fashion designers, style bloggers, photographers, press, buyers, and fashion-lovers. We were honored to be a part of it. The first day of the show featured general fashion from various designers with a wide range styles. The second day was dedicated to bridal designers. Our designer Sara Sandberg was able to present her Spring collection and gave a sneak peak of some designs coming this Fall.

We had a lot of help from a great team.

Dillards was so generous to lend us jewelry and shoes to compliment our gowns.

We also had the chance to work with models in the area, one of whom was Sara’s own sister.
