Up a ladder in a couture bridal gown

The delicate beauty of couture wedding gowns (made by Nicky Vankets) perfectly complements the beauty of an opulent French interior. But when the wallpaper is peeling and the plasterwork crumbling, you wouldn’t likely put your fanciest of gowns on while you climb the ladder to do your renovation work.

That’s what makes this shoot, Fond d’Ecran (or, ‘New Wallpaper’) work. There’s something so synergetic about the romantic garments and the romantic setting, but so contrasted about the activities taking place.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
