Since retro girl group The Tootsie Rollers have worn my floral fashion headpieces to Ascot, singer Meg Gallagher asked me to run a workshop at her best friend’s hen do. I taught the women how to make faux floral headbands, hair combs, earrings and rings which many of them also wore to the wedding.
I worked with bride Emma to create a bespoke antique blush pink hydrangea headband to wear with her veil, based on one of my headpieces she had bought from the bridal boutique The Wedding Club. She wanted the same flowers, but a larger and fuller design for a bigger impact. Ultimately she decided to return to the original headband as the proportions worked better with her dress and hairstyle.
Photographer Izzy Hudgins shot the Georgia wedding of Emily and Jono and the bride was wearing one of my silk hydrangea flower headbands. I love the way the traditional white colour of the headpiece and Alice Temperley dress work with the beautiful bright coloured summer flowers.
I am going to show you how to make a really fun, festive, party headband, inspired by the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2016 campaign. Big, bright flowers featured heavily in the Dolce & Gabbana collection, as did headbands, sequins and black petersham bows and embellished details.
For the fashion editorial 'New Romantic', in the December/January 2017 edition of You & Your Wedding magazine, my Georgie headband and Lilla crown were paired with beautiful floor length silk dresses. The photographer was Wendy Carrig and the stylist was Peta Hunt.
My faux floral fashion is being stocked in Fortnum & Mason for Spring & Summer 2016. The collection comprises of headbands and decorative hair combs.
My floral headbands were styled by Charlie Anderson in this Russian folk inspired editorial for Stylist magazine (issue 292 / 28.10.15). I love the colours and playfulness captured by photographer Kristian Shuller.
My silk peony crown was featured in a Hello! Fashion Monthly Summer millinery round up called "It's a Hat Trick".
