In Peter’s world, social eccentrics like Peggy Guggenheim and Edie Beale stand alongside creative minds like Diane Arbus and Cecil Beaton. Nothing, as he puts it, should be too perfect as perfection is uninteresting. Peter cites the laid-back elegance of his native San Francisco along with his architect parents as influences that encouraged his unique style and choice of career. After graduating with a degree in Art History from Connecticut College, he then continued his studies at Parsons School of Design. Peter has worked with Bill Blass and Tommy Hilfiger, as well as run his own collection since its inception in 2001. The Peter Som aesthetic is known the fashion world over for its mix of feminine, classic lines and refined quirkiness. We are thrilled to offer this singular perspective through wedding dress designs (his first ever!) exclusive to our assortment.
