A little Q&A with the designer:
Q. What is your design inspiration?
Jen: Vintage illustration and high quality fabrics
Elizabeth: my brides are my inspiration, the dresses come alive when i can put a real face to them.
Q. Tell me two little known facts about you:
J: I play drums in the Witches Titties and design a line of accessories called Kitten Mittens that benefits PAWS, our local animal rescue. www.kittenmittensclub.com
E: I direct and design costumes for theatre and am an aerialist in my spare time.
Q. Describe your personal style:
E & J: we both have a very personal and unique style; we love hand made, vintage, high quality clothes, which we usually tweak and tailor ourselves.
Jen has a vintage coat collection/ E loves local handmade jewelry.
Q. What is your favorite article of clothing?
J: Kitten Mittens of course! I wear houndstooth ones with a vintage red wool coat, and elbow length cashmere ones with my 3/4 sleeve leopard coat.
E: my favorite garment is a vintage Betsy Johnson long black velvet dress...it's super gothic, and I never receive less than a dozen compliments whenever i put it on.
Q. Favorite vacation spot:
J: New York: every time I visit I have a crazy unforgettable experience, and the fabric stores are my heaven.
E: Paris; I cannot get enough of that city. If I ever run away from home, that is where you will find me, (or not!)
Q. When did you know that you were going to design bridal?
E & J: When we started Cicada we had a line of dresses at local shops and we had so many custom requests to make them in ivory that our first 10 piece bridal collection was born- and we never looked back!
Q. Who is your style icon?
J: Diana Vreeland“There’s only one thing in life, and that’s the continual renewal of inspiration.”
E: I love Tim Gunn, he is stylish without being snobbish (I met him during my final interview for Project Runway, which I did not get in; Tim said I didn't need Project Runway! I love you Tim!)
Q. If you could dress any celebrity, who would it be?
J: Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, wouldn't the fittings be fun?
E: I would dress Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama..powerful women should also look amazing.
Q. What is the last great book that you read?
J: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and always by my bed: Diana Vreeland Memos: the Vogue Years
E: The Magicians, by Lev Grossman; one should always read fantasy during bridal season.
Q. Any advice for brides?
J: Don't starve yourselves. Work out, eat healthy- fine! But the hangrier you get the more emotional, and harder it is to make good happy decisions.
E: Don't ask too many people for their opinions when choosing a bridal gown. trust your own gut...women know what looks best on them. Be empowered to make your own choice!
