Chicago, Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In just 25 days, bridal designers will flock to New York City to debut their new collections for bridal salon owners and their buying teams. Fair trade bridal line Celia Grace will be among the crowd, but is standing out in a gorgeous all-white art gallery and studio.
Celia Grace’s new collection, Wild Wood, features bridal separates including toppers, skirts, bandeaus and pants as well as slip-style, ball gown, drop-waist, mermaid and other on-trend and classic dress silhouettes. This is the first new collection for Celia Grace in 5 years, designed by new head designer Colleen Bankovich under the direction of new owner Lisa Kaehler.
The collection features 100% real bamboo fabric, raw heirloom silks (hand-woven by members of our Cambodian co-op), silk chiffon, organic cotton and Valentino silk.
A few pieces in the collection have been produced as part of The Temple Project, which uses wilted marigold flowers taken from temples in India and steam-pressed onto fabrics to create a true organic pattern with natural dyes.
Prices range from $375 to 3200. Sizes range from 0 to 18, with extended sizing available by request to accommodate sizes above 18.
Rogue Space is an open, airy art gallery and studio space in Chelsea, located just 1.2 miles from The Fringe Collective, 0.3 miles from One Fine Day and 2 miles from The London Hotel.
Celia Grace is currently taking appointments for October 6 through 9, which can be booked online through celia-grace.com. Here you can also find a preview of the collection, which is also available to view on Instagram as well.
