 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.

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'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!
