My Munaluchi Bride Magazine Cover, Preston's blog, Preston magazine cover floral dress

I’m a very lucky man! I get to do a lot of pretty great things for my job and that often means working with some really wonderful folks. But I am especially excited today to tell you about my recent collaboration with Munaluchi Bride. I am honored to be on the cover of their Fall/Winter 2011 issue with the stunning Anouschka, who’s modeling a dress of my creation. Nope, I haven’t become a fashion designer; I designed a dress out of flowers, of course! We were inspired by a particularly beautiful Marchesa gown, but that doesn’t mean it was easy. We used 250 white phalaenopsis orchids, 400 white hydrangeas, 300 white tibet roses, and 100 pink rosita vendela roses to make this one-of-a-kind floral dress.

Anouschka was incredibly patient throughout the entire shoot; modeling is always hard, but it’s particularly hard when you’re wearing a flower arrangement! Check out this behind-the-scenes video of the shoot

You can purchase the new issue of Munaluchi Bride online now (with free shipping!), but it will also be available on newsstands nationwide September 6th.

Have a wonderful weekend, folks. And if you’re on the East Coast, please, please be careful; Hurricane Irene means business!
