mara hoffman goes bridal with a shoot in death valley

Bohemian brides – it has finally happened! Free-spirited NYC designer Mara Hoffman has gone bridal. This fabulous editorial shoot by Olivia Malone in Death Valley unveils Hoffman’s new Devotional Collection with exceptional style.

Hoffman’s ready-to-wear line is affordable ($300-$1,700!) and “inspired by the idea of a spontaneous bride running off to be married by the sea, barefoot in the desert, or under a canopy in the woods.”

Mara Hoffman’s debut bridal collection consists of four gowns, a bustier and long skirt set, a veil, and in true Mara Hoffman bohemian style, two swimsuits.

The pieces are each named after Greek, Roman, and Hindu goddesses and are crafted from silk georgette & chiffon with hand beading, embroidery, and lattice details. Hoffman wanted to breathe life into the true ceremonial and even tribal aspects of weddings and I say – mission accomplished!

If you love this boho style be sure to take a look the wanderer and gypsy bridal style for more inspiration.
