Just as lilacs bloom to herald in the springtime, this fabulous light violet is certain to welcome happy days. Lilac has been overlooked, but is quickly growing in popularity, like its fragrant counter-part, particularly for weddings.
Perhaps lilac has gained favor because it symbolizes youthful innocence, and new love, making it a logical wedding choice. Perhaps the mysterious mythology of lilacs is boosting its' resurgence. According to the Greeks, a lovely nymph, Syringa, caught the eye of Pan, god of forests and meadows. Pan was so captivated by her youthful beauty and innocence that he chased after her, frightening her. Syringa (which is the scientific name for lilac) turned herself into the fragrant lilac to escape Pan's attention.
Such romance lends itself beautifully to our lilac collection for toddlers and little girls. Our lilac gowns combine the romance and fancy of its lore.
