Once Upon A Fairytale ...

If ever I were to be the star of a fairytale,
I would want to be dressed in breathless magic.

Magic that would sparkle in the sunlight
and swirl softly in the moonlight,
with the glorious sheer hem of my gown
playing sweet games with the breeze.

I can't imagine couture more breathtaking than
the designs by the fashion house of
~  J'Aton Couture. ~
The magicians that wave their wands
to create such beauty are Austrailian designers
Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino.
Both designers are from sartorial Italian backgrounds
and are known for their great attention to detail in
creating those bewitching gowns.

Beautiful J'Aton bridal and red-carpet gowns
adorn many high-profile beauties as they step into
 their own fairytales.
In 2011, model Rebecca Twigley chose the gown
 pictured above with all of it's translucent layers of magic
for her fairytale wedding to AFL player Chris Judd.
{She is pictured in her gown, below}

Following are glimpses into other fairytales
that J'Aton gowns were a beautiful part of:

Oh, the magical beauty ...
doesn't it leave you breathless too?

One particular image of a beautiful J'Aton fairytale gown
not only leaves me breathless each time I see it ...
but the brush in my hand recently found itself
dipping into my waterglass,
... as if by magic ...
and soon water met paper
and when color then met water ...

I had my fairytale gown.

 If you'd like to see a photo of this gown, go here.

I'll leave you now to dream dreams
of your own fairytales, lovelies ...
see you Friday!

Hi, Sandy,

I can understand, what you feel, when you see these faboulus creations.

Your painting is perfect! I have seen the cute pink book with your illustrations. Congratulations!
I am painting, too, but I have never had education. Maybe you wanna take a look into my blog. Theres a pic to come in, on the right side of my blog.

My favourite is the dress on the balcony. Like a white peacock, isn't it?

Enjoy this day!
