This year, my floral fashion is once again being stocked in Fortnum & Mason for the Summer season. Alongside some of my signature hydrangea headbands and combs, I have also made some new show stopper styles featuring roses, peonies, hydrangeas and delphiniums, especially for Fortnum & Mason.
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.
I am going to show you how to make a simple rose choker, inspired by the Gucci Autumn 2016 campaign. This is a really easy and fairly inexpensive project. You can buy a single rose stem from your local florist or pick one from your garden.
I want to say thank you to everyone at Fortnum & Mason for inviting me to take part in their Celebrate the Season event, and for being so helpful and welcoming. I made fresh flower headpieces from scented roses, demonstrating floristry and millinery skills and offering advice. Fortnum & Mason is itself a magical space, calming and at the same time uplifting, so it was a joy to be able to create there.
