Following the success of her first book, Butterflies and All Things Sweet (Goff Books), which won a number of important international design awards, style icon Bonnae Gokson is back – this time focusing on weddings from different cultures, and celebrating beauty, creativity, individuality, artistry, and love in all its forms.
Weddings, Butterflies & The Sweetest Dreams is a book like no other. With contributions by Vera Wang, world-renowned couture wedding gown designer, and Iris Apfel, iconic fashion industry personality, it is a unique visual feast, exploring couture wedding celebrations in a completely fresh and unexpected manner. Through exquisite, sophisticated and surprising imagery—from Paris haute couture to a ranch in Montana—it reveals the way Bonnae sees the world, inspired by everything from poetry to fine art resulting in a timeless, contemporary aspirational journey through a treasure trove of multi-cultural artistry.

One of the most accomplished and admired women in Asia, and honored with a Legend Award for Elle’s 30th anniversary in Hong Kong, entrepreneur Bonnae Gokson is the founder of Ms B’s CAKERY, SEVVA, one of Hong Kong’s most recognized destination restaurants and C’est La B Cakery in Hong Kong. She now turns her attention to a new couture oriented publication guaranteed to inspire brides-to-be, wedding professionals and everyone interested in beauty and design.


With close to 50 years in fashion, Vera Wang has dressed everyone from Michelle Obama to Kim Kardashian and more. During her career, Wang successfully transitioned from VOGUE magazine editor to globally recognized fashion designer and is the reigning Queen of Wedding Gown Design, having dressed Victoria Beckham, Chelsea Clinton, Ivanka Trump, Jennifer Lopez and Alicia Keys on their special days. She was awarded Lifetime Awards in America by the Council of Fashion Designers of America, and last year was again awarded the 2017 Chevalier of France’s National Order of the Legion of Honor.

One of the most dynamic in the worlds of fashion, textiles, and interior design. Iris Apfel is one of the great style icons of modern times.  The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art staged Rare Avis, a blockbuster exhibition of her clothing and accessories, making her the first living woman who was not a fashion designer to be so honored.  Today at 97, Iris is fashion influencer, brand ambassador, film star, designer and more.
