ALIVE Wedding: A Sneak Peek At The Newest Bridal Collection By Ruby Francis
St. Louis-based designer and maker Stephanie Larimer will celebrate the official release of her newest line of eco-friendly wedding gowns, Intended, at a trunk show event that will take place at her Cherokee Street storefront, on Valentine’s weekend.
The gowns are all crafted by Larimer, whose line—Ruby Francis—consists of pieces created by using repurposed vintage and found fabrics from various sources. The result is a beautiful collection that equally serves as an ode to the past, and a gateway into the future: ruffles, details, and retro-styling make the vintage pieces right on trend for SS16. To read our full interview with Larimer and to learn more about her newest collection, snag your copy of ALIVE Wedding on the streets this week!
