ULTRA VIOLET- PANTONE 2018!

Pantone announced Ultra Violet as the color of the year 2018! What makes me so excited about it is that it is the color of the flower that I am named after! Ha!

Anyway, I am so excited about using this color in event design this year. I can’t wait to see how designers are incorporating this color. I think it has been neglected for a long time and deserves some love! I hope it goes on to achieve the success that rose quartz and serenity did 2 years ago!

Ultra violet makes me think about the cosmos, the mysteries of the universe and what lies beyond. It is the color of the beautiful sky on a clear starry night. There is a certain enigma attached to the color. It is the color of non-conformity and rebellion! I think designers can use this fascinating color to signify royalty and power. I can definitely see a lot of brides wanting this color.

Here’s a big dose of ultra-violet goodness for you!

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian

The tennis mega star married beau Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit) in a Beauty and the Beast-themed ceremony at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans! Her dress, designed by none other than Alexander McQueen. I would say the wedding was a total grand slam!

Serena seems to be a big fan of the movie as the guests were welcomed to the tune of Our Guest from the Disney movie. Venus Williams, Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé, La La Anthony, Eva Longoria and her husband José Bastón were in attendance!

I loved the pictures from their wedding shoot, taken by their talented photographer.

Swooning over the Royal Wedding!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to marry on May 19, 2018. The wedding is to take place at the Windsor Castle. While there is no confirmation on her designer of choice, in the past she was dressed by Ralph & Russo for her engagement photo session.

I personally hope she would turn to someone like Maison Margiela or Misha Nonoo (her close friend) for the wedding day!

As for her bridesmaids – Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams, Misha Nonoo and Jessica Mulroney are all names that have been suggested i the media, but we can only wait and watch!

Here’s a compilation of gowns that I would love to see on the princess!
