Every relationship is unique, so when a woman steps out on her wedding day, custom gown designer Faith Thornburg believes her attire should be just as distinctive. “I cater to the modern bride who’s not afraid to try something different,” says the young Savannah-based romantic, who has vowed to bring to the CFW aisle an inimitable Fall 2012 show. Incorporating research into historical fashions and insight into styles that help the wearer feel beautiful, her ethereal creations make a bold bridal statement with rich fabrics and elegant textures, feminine silhouettes and expressive movement. And this season, Thornburg’s collection bares a new off-white aesthetic with its emphasis on neutral tones. “Nudes blend with the skin to add sex appeal to dresses that you would typically expect to see in white,” she explains. Look forward to falling in love with this fresh presentation.
Believe it or not, I get inspiration from the History Channel. I could sit and watch it all day and not lose interest in the people, the places, the stories, or the fashions.
My craziest moment in fashion was when I received a personal invitation to visit with André Leon Talley after SCAD’s senior fashion show. I’ll never forget sipping sweet tea with Mr. Talley, Manolo Blahnik, and Miss J. Alexander.
When I work, I listen to a variety of things depending on my mood. I usually just hit shuffle and will hear anything from Frank Sinatra to Beyoncé.
