Fresh Bridal Experience Runway Photos

Kathy Grate, owner of Divine Occasions, contacted us last year about participating in an event she was coordinating. It’s called the Fresh Bridal Experience, and we had the honor of being the featured designer in the fashion show. It was the first time the gowns in our long dress line were on the runway. Below are the photos from the event taken by Cindy Brown.

Lil’ Birdie Blues Hair Accessories

Knot couture is all about supporting friends, family, and DIY businesses in their skilled trade.  We were introduced to Lil’ Birdie Blues in the Fall of 2010 and had to share the amazing hair pieces they make.  We love how their accessories can go from day to night effortlessly! Here is their story….

“It was a crisp autumn day in 2008 when Julie Goeddeke and Krista Goeddeke first came up with the concept of Lil’ Birdie Blues. They had attended local craft fairs and became inspired by the many handmade, unique items made by the vendors. It was then that the two began to vigorously collect vintage brooches, jewelry, buttons and ribbons to create a distinctive line of hair accessories. Lil’ Birdie Blues is most influenced by the flappers of the 1920’s and the pin-ups of the 1950’s, though not limited to those styles alone. As Lil’ Birdie Blues has grown, so too have the many styles and designs of the hair accessories. Both Julie and Krista are grounded in artisan fields and both have shown an energy and zest that are unequalled. They have a true passion for making accessories that can be worn by anyone from a soccer mom to an indie rocker and to a professional who likes to stick out in the office while remaining office-appropriate. As Lil’ Birdie Blues has grown, so too has the demand. Julie and Krista will take the time to work with clients to make specialty items. They also will work with brides to make homemade accessories for wedding parties. Every Lil’ Birdie Blue accessory is made with love and care.”

When Knot Couture was planning their first runway show for the Fashion-A-Bull benefit they knew that teaming up with Lil’ Birdie Blues would be a great mesh for the two companies.  We contacted Julie to see if she was interested in making some one-of-a-kind hair pieces to pair with our dresses to make an after the wedding dressed down look.  She gladly accepted and showed up the day of with some amazing pieces.  All 6 models pranced down the runway with some amazing Lil’ Birdies in their hair.

Currently, Lil’ Birdie Blues is sold at the following locations:

KC Presents: ‘Bambi’- The Spring 2011 Haute Couture Look


'Bambi' Skirt Detail

'Bambi' Bodice Detail

Knot Couture is proud to unveil ‘Bambi’, the much anticipated one-of-a-kind Spring 2011 Couture design. The designers have put their blood, sweat, and tears (literally) into this high fashion garment. The dress was inspired by a ballerina tutu and showcases scrap remnants from the entire collection thus far, as a bouquet of various blooms and flower petals. Each flower on the skirt is cut, sewn and beaded (by hand) out of silk, polyester and tulle. The details are emphasized by white and ivory feathers.  The bodice is also accented by a flower and feather right above one off-the-shoulder draped sleeve.

Individual Flower Detail

Overall, the intricate details that makes this dress so beautiful and unique, took more then 45 hours of labor for placement and hand sewing. In addition to the flowers being cut and sewn, they are also clean finished to prevent fraying and to add a distressed vintage look. The dress was first showcased in the Fashion-A-Bull Benefit fashion show and was recently photographed by Valerie A. Smith and Tress Ritter at Wild Side Portraits for KC’s first editorial style photo shoot. For pricing information on ‘Bambi’, or to place an order, contact us at info@myknotcouture.com.
