Whether you're a future bride who fantasizes about your fairytale wedding or you're a historical landmark enthusiast (or both), couture bridal designer Claire Pettibone's relocated digs are the stuff dreams are made of (if they involve frilly, lace-y frocks and Romanesque brick buildings, that is). California Apparel News reports the LA-based gown maker moved her flagship from Robertson Boulevard to the dreamy 4,700-square-foot castle that is the Heinsbergen Decorating Company Building, offering Beverly Boulevard-bound brides the ultimate dress-up experience.
In addition to carrying the designer's delicate wedding dresses, the massive 1928-built manor also houses Pettibone's bridal accessories and will soon stock lingerie. If you fancy the dressmaker as your fairy godmother, don't miss the chance to meet her at the castle's grand opening trunk show happening September 20th and 21st.
