Leanne Marshall Bridal AW 2021

Leanne Marshall Wows With Her Surprise AW2021 Bridal Collection

The always anticipated Leanne Marshall debuted her Autumn / Winter 2021 Bridal collection this week and brought romantic elegance with a hint of edge. Leanne Marshall stunned on social media with a preview of some of the pieces on Tuesday October 6th, but the full collection consisted of gowns, separates, capes, sleeved and sleeveless gowns. Standout pieces included 2 hand dyed gowns with hues of purple, blue, vibrant orange, blush, and of course traditional whites.

When speaking about her AW2021 collection on Instagram Leanne said, “(To be honest), I didn’t think I wanted to do (a collection this season) with all that’s going on this year. I didn’t feel inspired. Eventually, I kicked my (butt) into gear to create just a few new things. And then those few gave birth to more ideas and it felt good to create. And then I ended up with a rather full new collection, and I’m quite pleased that I pushed through and did it despite hesitation.” 

This vibrant and beautiful collection came during a time when some have found it difficult to find inspiration, creativity and beauty in the world. Leanne Marshall pushed through the darkness to give us one of her most beautifully crafted and inspired collections to date.

About Leanne Marshall:

Leanne Marshall was born in Yuba City, California. When most little girls were playing house, Leanne was playing fashion designer with a sketchbook, colored pencils and spare bits of fabric. In no time at all with the help of a local seamstress, she began bringing her sketches to life. By age 12, her designs were being shown to the public in the form of costumes for her ballet and dance performances. Her natural gift for sketching and design, combined with the thrill she felt at creating costumes for performance, inspired her to pursue a career as a fashion designer.

At age 18, Leanne won the Levi’s Dockers Scholarship and was awarded a year of free tuition at The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco where she went on to study. In mid 2007, she was able to leave her money job behind and make the leap into designing her own label full-time previously named Leanimal.

In 2008, what would become a career defining year, Leanne was selected as a contestant for Season 5 of Project Runway. With an unwavering determination, she made it all the way to the finale where she showed her, now famous, wave inspired collection in shades of turquoise, ivory and sand. The judges, and audiences worldwide, were captivated by her final collection and Leanne was crowned the winner. Fresh after her Project Runway win, Leanne relocated to New York City where she continued to develop her line. Her collections have shown at New York Fashion Week and fashion weeks around the globe every year since 2008. Her work has been seen on Carrie Underwood, Ashley Benson, Salt, Ariana Grande, Andi MacDowell, Julianne Hough,Dasha Palanco, Jackie Cruz, Jane Fonda, Paula Abdul and many others. Her dresses and gowns have graced the pages of Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, US Weekly, The Post, TV Guide, The New York Times, People, Grazia, Elle, LIFE, National Geographic and countless others.

Leanne Marshall’s sophisticated designs are known for their light, flowing lines, feminine details and timeless elegance. Each dress is made in New York using only the highest quality materials. The Leanne Marshall Brand is a staple for the woman who wants a dress that will showcase, not overshadow, her beauty. Attention to high quality standards, proper flattering fits and silhouettes, and her unique ethereal approach to design have made Leanne a go-to for today’s woman. With touches of classic and modern, sophistication and youth, Leanne Marshall has captured an effortless grace and timeless elegance in her collections.

About Blue Man Group:

Blue Man Group was created in 1991 by three long-time friends from New York City: Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman, who were determined they would achieve lives of meaning and purpose by following their own path. They created a ground-breaking performance centered on a bald and blue character they called Blue Man.

Blue Man Productions is now a global entertainment company best known for the award-winning Blue Man Group show, performed in over 20 countries and seen by more than 35 million people worldwide since 1991. A dynamic combination of art, music, comedy and technology, the show’s euphoric celebration of human connection has universal appeal for a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds.

Helen Castillo x Blue Man Group:

“After seeing Blue Man Group live in New York City, I was inspired by and particularly drawn to the overall aesthetic of the theatre and the industrial elements of the stage. Of course, Blue Man Group is an iconic part of New York City’s performance art history and a household name I grew up with. All of this, coupled with how the Blue Man Group originated in the 90’s, which is trending right now in fashion, felt like the perfect time to collaborate together on a limited edition, unisex garment.”

“One of my favorite parts of the performance is when the Blue Men grab an audience member, dress them in a coverall jumpsuit, and swing them against a canvas after being covered in paint. It’s so unexpected and served as the inspiration for my limited edition garment.  I created a coverall jumpsuit sourced from lightweight cotton canvas material to embody the literal canvas of the performance piece and then added hints of the iconic Blue Men blue for details on my design.  The idea of integrating an audience member into their performance and dressing him to be part of their ‘Group’ inspired me to make a piece that would almost leave a lasting mark as a ‘uniform’ for both the Blue Man Group and the audience to have a connection outside of the show.”

“In terms of the Blue Man Group-inspired jumpsuit I created, I knew I wanted the garment to be unisex, utilitarian and to create a sort of unity between the Blue Man Group and the audience. I love that with this Blue Man Group-inspired jumpsuit, I am helping to give fans a tangible piece of the show experience and a nod to 90’s trends with the color blocking of the collar, tuxedo stripe and pocket flaps. I’ve also wanted to dabble in menswear and have been recently researching more tailoring techniques, so this was the perfect opportunity to create a unisex piece that was not only trendy but iconic yet fresh and familiar. The limited edition Blue Man Group-inspired jumpsuit will be available online on my website, designerhelen.com, beginning in September!”

“This is also the first time in 27 years that Blue Man Group is participating in Fashion Week and they will be attending my show on September 9th.”
