Fall in love with you and fall in love with the wedding dress


My dear, Today I put on a wedding dress! We smiled at the camera tacitly, You took my hand and walked into the ocean of love that belongs to us. We have always faced love, but behind the enchanting flowers, Swearing on our incredible love, let the wedding photographs fulfill our love vows now.

Our gorgeous love testimonies and beautiful wedding photos of you and me, each time we casually look back, we left a permanent imprint in the photographer's lens, we have an unconscious smile, keep the happiest in the camera Beautiful, a gorgeous turn, beautiful stops at this moment, a beautiful wedding dress flying under the light of the wedding dress, under the wedding is your happy smile.

Let wedding photos commemorate our love, love, happiness, and the golden wedding of fifty years later. We hope we can embrace the happy wedding photos in the sea of flowers just like today.


Sensory-friendly performance allows all to enjoy ballet

When the Schuylkill Ballet Theatre presented “The Sleeping Beauty” on Friday night, house lights were purposely kept low.

Stars shined through during dress rehearsal for the theatre’s 38th annual spring performance at Blue Mountain High School. It marked its first sensory-friendly performance. Dancers take the stage again for two main performances at 7 p.m. today and 3 p.m. Sunday.

Those who have autism, sensory sensitivities or special needs were able to enjoy the ballet with their families as crews took care to adjust lighting and sound. Children’s electronic communication devices were also welcomed. The reduced crowds during the dress rehearsal also made it more sensory-friendly.

“At the end of the performance, we’ll have an autograph session with pictures. We want them to know these are kids they may interact with in school. They (dancers) are glad they can share their talents,” Sarah Schimpf, artistic director and choreographer, said prior to the show.

Schimpf, who’s also a speech therapist, heard about other companies in Philadelphia having similar sensory-friendly performances and wanted to try it here. She approached the theater board and cast members in January about having the special performance.

There were 10 people who had preordered tickets for Friday’s show, she said. A handful of families sat in the front rows of the auditorium.

“We talk about inclusion in our family,” Tammy Chrin, Schuylkill Haven, said, while watching her daughter, Tina, 8, rehearse. Chrin also serves as special education supervisor for Williams Valley School District. “It’s nice that we’re bringing the opportunities from the big cities into rural Pennsylvania with something like this, so the kids have this opportunity right in their backyard.”

Joanna Schock was there to watch her daughter, Aimee, 12, perform as a mouse, peasant guest and a Chinese maiden.

“She’s excited to see how the audience will react,” Schock, Schuylkill Haven, said.

She also brought her two other daughters, Joy, 9, and Eliza, 9 months.

Schock said she thought it was great that the company allows dancers from various studios to join together for its productions. They build important friendships, she said. Joy will be attending the open house April 22 for SBT and may also begin dancing, Schock said.

“I think it’s a great idea,” Katie Brown, Pine Grove, said.

She joined her husband, Larry, and 8-year-old son, Ian, for the show.

“A lot of kids don’t get to experience this, and it really gives them an opportunity to see new things,” she said.

Her daughter, Alexa, 11, was a fairy in the SBT production, performing in her first show.

Among the cast of more than 30 are Kelly Karpovich as Aurora; Aaron Bensinger as Prince Desire; Amber Ulsh as young Aurora; Amanda Johns as Lilac Fairy; Greg Schuettler as Cavalier; and Alexandra Mullin as Carabosse.

According to the show’s program, “The Sleeping Beauty” is a ballet that was written to take the stage in 1889. “The storyline was conceived by Ivan Vsevolozhsky and is based on Charles Perrault’s La Belle au bois Dormant. The score was orchestrated by Pyotr Tchaikovsky.”Read more at:simple wedding dresses |

Meet the International Woolmark prizewinners weaving their magic with merino

From finding a way to locate people trapped in avalanches to upcycling Indian saris into quilts, the inspirations for the winners of this year's International Woolmark Prize were as diverse as the fashion collections they produced.

Indian brand Bodice won the $200,00 International Woolmark Prize for womenswear, British designer Matthew Miller snared the $200,000 prize for menswear and American brand DYNE won the $100,000 innovation award in the global prize that recognises fashion design excellence using Australian merino wool.

Inspired by memories of her grandmother making quilts out of old saris, Bodice designer Ruchika Sachdeva created a collection using recycled yarns and traditional techniques that aim to consumer waste in fashion. Sachdeva worked with Indian handweavers using a technique originally employed for recycling old saris by hand-sewing them together and with a company in central India that dyes fabrics with colours from natural sources. Buttons were sourced from renewable sources including coconut shell, seashell and wood to complete the brand's vision of conscious consumption.

"I design for a woman who is thoughtful and questions where her clothes are coming from," Sachdeva said. "It's not just enough for her that what she wears is beautiful; she is a conscious consumer who really wants to know the story behind the brand."

Italian Vogue editor-in-chief Emanuele Farneti, Russian digital entrepreneur Miroslava Duma, model Amber Valetta and designer Phillip Lim were among the judges of the event, held on January 9 at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence on the opening night of Pitti Uomo, the world's largest men's fashion trade event.

Thoughtful designs

Lim said Bodice's collection was "completely thoughtful. From the materials and dyes used all the way to the application and everything in between, her collection really represents a modern woman."

DYNE's Christopher Bevans impressed the panel with a technical snowboarding wardrobe including a water-resistant wool jacket embedded with a near-field communication chip to track users in avalanches.

"The NFC chips he embedded in his collection, and the fabrication of the snowboard gear, really stood out," said Duma. "He really thinks about technology every step of the way."

British designer Matthew Miller channelled Dieter Rams' concept of form follows function to add multifunctional elements for different environments.

"I created a collection that can be worn as normal garments but then evolve into accessories if you don't want to wear them as clothes," said Miller, who also used water-resistant wool fabrics and eradicated the need for plastic fastenings by using recycled materials including waste marble.

"It's a utilitarian uniform for a customer who appreciates good design and sustainability."

More than 65 designers from over 60 countries were nominated this year for the world's most prestigious award for rising fashion talents, with global finalists including Blair Archibald from Australia and Harman Grubiša from New Zealand.

In addition to their prize money, Sachdeva and Miller will have their winning designs stocked in the world's greatest fashion stores, including Lane Crawford, Harvey Nichols, Leclaireur and David Jones.

"This is a huge opportunity to expand on what I do and keep doing it," Sachdeva said. "To get the chance to work with these retailers is incredible."Read more at:plus size wedding dresses | bridal gowns
