Her attire: "Wearing short dresses and skirts is almost like a trademark for me. For the cocktail party, I designed my dress myself. I have always loved fashion and though my career is designing accessories, my passion also lies in clothing. After coming up with the details and the design, I approached [former Project Runway contestant] Kara Janx (karajanx.com) to help me with the construction end of it. The color palette of the cocktail party was jewel tones, so I wanted to reflect that in my attire as well by wearing blue heels by Pour la Victoire (pourlavictoire.com). Something blue also came into play—the traditional wedding details had to be there too!"
His attire: "My husband had two custom suits made for our wedding by Jack Victor (641 Lexington Ave at 54th St, 11th floor; 212-399-0020, jackvictor.com). For the ceremony, he had a three-piece pin-striped navy suit, and on Saturday for the party, he had a tuxedo. We wanted these suits to fit him superbly and really show his lean physique, but at the same time be very classic and sophisticated looking."
