Wedding Smoking Jacket
A classmate of mine from Savannah College of Art and Design invited me to her wedding in San Diego so ofcourse I had to make something to wear. Her colors scheme was greys, nudes and blushes so I went in search for the perfect fabric. I found a wonderful elven inspired fancy jacquard (they’re Lord of the Rings/ Hobbit fans as well) and purchased matching metallic silver zibeline for trimming of the cuffs, belt, pockets, bag and shawl collar lapel. The jacket is a nod to the smoking jacket of the 20’s with a modern twist. The closure is a waist tie with matching fringe.
I topped my look off with an antique dragonfly brooch, peach bowtie made by me and elven crown also made by myself.
Hope you enjoy as much as I did.
