Valentino has been known to showcase interesting prints featuring insects and animals before but for the fashion house' Fall Ready to Wear 2014 collection it was all about butterflies. From micro butterflies to oversized insects this collection was peppered with the beautiful winged creatures and we simply cannot get enough! Butterflies represent beauty and grace as well as serve as a symbol for metamorphosis and change which makes them the perfect accent to any upcoming spring nuptials! We love the idea of using vintage text book pages as inspiration for the decor elements of any event, incorporating these images into an invitation suite or using the artwork to model centerpieces from would be nice touches.
What do you think of using butterflies as inspiration at a wedding?
