Brad Parnell and his partner Rodney Jones are the duo that make up the brand
William Bradley, and they are also getting married in September. Their collection, aptly
named, Tying the Knot, is based around their upcoming celebrations. Rodney is Mid-Century
driven in his inspiration, which is where the collection’s pastel colors came in, and the
architectural pieces came from Brad, who is more Art Deco driven. Since getting married was the collection’s theme, they fused the two styles together in one happy marriage. They also chose to use grosgrain ribbons for the accent bows, grosgrain is the strongest ribbon, and when you're tying the knot, symbolically or otherwise, it's good to have a strong foundation.

I found this collection very interesting. Not sure how I felt about it once the runway presentation was over, but once I reviewed the images, I realized there were a few good pieces in the collection and some unusual ones too. What I like about these two designers is that they take chances and are not trend followers.
