For decades, women have idolized Grace Kelly for her beauty, her elegance, and her incredible fashions. Her wedding dress is no exception, and designer Cathy Telle took inspiration from the royal icon for her latest collection.
Read on for more from the designer, Cathy Telle:
“Nowadays, the word “princess” mostly evokes two associations – heroines of Disney cartoons, on which we all grew up, and, of course, wedding ceremonies of British Royal family, on which we kept a close eye.
But in fact, fairy princesses exist and grace the real world with their beauty and perfect manners. They became the inspiration for our new collection. We have chosen Grace Kelly as a main heroine of our collection. This young and freedom-loving girl became the tenth Princess of Monaco at the beginning of her actress career. Our collection “Grace” named in honor of her.
We took it upon ourselves to interpret the original Grace’s dress and add a little provocative to it in the form of a translucent bodice, as Grace could not just put away “Hollywood” ambitions only because she become a princess.
After the collection had been finished, we faced the challenge to find true royal locations for our photoshoot. We decided to travel to the country of Georgia to find perfect locations for our editorial shoot. We were fortunate to work with Georgian photographer Tamara Gigola. She is a wonderful person and a talented photographer who helped us to pick best locations for our project.”

This week my work has been featured in Russian edition of Weddings Magazine.
One of my favorite photos from The Styling Pilgrimage Workshop in Morocco. I’ve been an admirer of Pearl & Godiva work for a long time. To work and to learn with Pearl &Godiva is an absolutely dream for every creative creature. Their workshop in Morocco appeared to be beyond all my expectations. A beauteous workshop by Pearl & Sheena appeared to be much more than a simple workshop. It was a life changing experience. Original, resourceful, timeless and professional advices, numerous conversations and discussions … they share so much. They helped me to explore myself and see things differently. It is amazing the difference how I see things now. Seeing world with new eyes, it was like travelling for the first time to new country. I started paying attention to details and started seeing with insight into the simple things. I walked away re-inspired and motivated to push my art to the next level. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. For sure joining Pearl & Godiva’s workshop will be the best way to push each and every business to the next level. I am incredibly grateful to Pearl & Sheena for this inspirational journey to the styling world and self-discovery.
George and Leo are adorable cousins, who live with their parents in Georgia. Their are truly adventurers. It was such a pleasure shooting them.
