Yes, we are still here at JLM Couture! The last few weeks have been filled with dress fittings, castings, 2 new collections (yes- it’s true. You’ll hear much more about Lovelle and Ti Adora soon!) and all the glorious Bridal Market prep one could expect- so we apologize for being so silent! But we promise the time away was well spent on…
Gowns from Lazaro (his 20th anniversary was truly amazing. More photos to come very soon!), Jim Hjelm, Hayley Paige, Alvina Valenta, Blush, Tara Keely, Occasions, and Noir were on display this past weekend and we couldn’t be more excited to share them with you (and trust us.. there is so much more where this came from- but you’ll have to stay tuned!)
We are in awe of the amount of requests we have received for all of our collections down under in Australia over the past year. We love our Aussie brides and wanted to make sure they know all about our Australian retailer, Eternal Bridal- located in Melbourne. They carry all JLM Couture divisions (yes, Lazaro, Hayley Paige, Alvina Valenta, Jim Hjelm, Tara Keely and Blush can all be found here!) and are an absolute pleasure if we do say so ourselves! Here is a peek inside their boutique:

We were beyond excited to see Petal, this stunning gown from the Spring 2013 Hayley Paige collection on Olivia Wilde for a recent campaign for a new fragrance for Avon called Today Tomorrow Always: Amour. Everything about this shoot is gorgeous, and Olivia hit the nail on the head in this behind the scenes video when she says “The idea is just to give off a beautiful and elegant and happy energy that reflects the fragrance”.
When we asked Miss. Paige what her inspirations were for the dress, she stated “Petal embodies a botanical theme with feminine sophistication. My objective was to channel this happy-go-lightly energy through soft and fresh elements of beauty”…
…which is just about everything that was captured in this video and shoot. Hats off to the Avon team!
