Weddings, Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams
Hong Kong-based cake designer Bonnae Gokson commissioned Sydney design studio This Is Ikon to art direct and design her sumptuous coffee-table book Weddings Butterflies & the Sweetest Dreams.
About the book
The book begins with contributions from American fashion designer Vera Wang, and interior designer and fashion icon Iris Apfel. From there it’s a visual flow that waltzes the reader through cultural approaches to weddings, evocative locations, gorgeous gowns, and Bonnae’s cakes — themselves works of art and feats of engineering. The book won Silver in the Publication category at the Sydney Design Awards 2019.
I worked closely with This Is Ikon to source imagery, which saw me working with photographers, image archives, agencies and individuals around the globe to secure rights.
