When Jaimie Hilfiger was nine years old, she attended a bridal shower at the St. Regis and couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. “My mom told me, ‘someday I’m going to have your bridal shower here.'” She told LLNYC, “So that’s what happening.”
The niece of world famous fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, Jaimie is marrying her boyfriend of six years, Igal Dahan, this summer in a private ceremony in an undisclosed location. This past Sunday, she held a high tea bridal shower in the Fontainebleau Room at the St. Regis hotel for her family and close friends.
A few days before the shower took place, the model and founder of skincare line, Jamie Hilfiger for La Curcio, spoke with LLNYC to give us the inside scoop on the planning, concept and all the details of the elegant shower.
“There are some people who are coming in from California, like my cousin Ally [Tommy Hilfiger’s daughter] is flying in from LA. And a few of my bridesmaids are coming in from Florida as well. So I feel really special that they’re coming all the way up.”
“I’m wearing a Rachel Allan dress; it’s white with gold appliqué. I have three dresses because I wanted to switch it up twice. I really love this one.”
“I have a really big sweet tooth. I love sweet treats and pastries and all of that kinds of stuff. I just thought it was nice for a Sunday afternoon, and not very typical.”
“For the party favors, I’m going to be handing out the hand cream and lip balm from my skincare collection.”
Though Jaimie said originally that she was “doing the shower with just ladies, because it’s not really a thing for guys,” one special guy made an appearance anyway: Her uncle, Tommy Hilfiger.
And as for the wedding planning? It’s a lot but Jaimie says she’s been enjoying planning it to make it just right: “We didn’t think there was any rush, we’ve been together for six years so I kind of just wanted to take everything slowly and plan it and get the date I wanted. Basically, we just wanted to take it step-by-step and do everything really well. I’ve been loving the process.”
