The Federal Ballroom, located steps away from New Orleans’ historic French Quarter, was the setting for our Sublime Silhouettes fashion editorial. The floor to ceiling windows and dramatic Corinthian columns in this historic venue were the perfect backdrop for these elegant gowns that we paired with floral headpieces.
