This photo shoot was inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2010 collection. It’s not so much that I was personally inspired–I’m no fashionista as anyone who knows me (or for that matter sees me) can testify–but rather Megan, the artistic genius behind Honey and Poppies was inspired. I’m kind of into ruffles, so I went with it. (She’s a bad influence on me.) And, I didn’t even argue that Pre-Fall would techinically be summer.
Below, the inspiration board Megan created.
First, I came up with some sketches based on the inspiration board.
Then Megan (frickin Megan) suggested changing it up a bit, so of course I did. (She’s mean.)
Rather than a single cake, I created a collection of cakes, just as fashion designers create seasonal collections. (I guess you could call this my Post-Spring collection, just to sound fancy.) And if that’s not enough, Megan created some pretty amazing cake stands out of flowers.
The shoot was featured in Utterly Engaged, an online wedding magazine.
