Feeling Coquettish

May 21, 2013

Oh I’m so delighted that I’m finally able to post this, it seems to have been a very long time in coming! Our new Coquette range of hair accessories is finally now available on our website. After a visit to the V&A costume department very early last year, I became completely obsessed with the delicacy and intricacy of the beading on Art Deco clothing. Six months later I had designed a range of hair accessories, including headdresses, hair combs and hair pins all heavily embroidered with vintage glass beads, sequins, diamante, and freshwater pearls.

Of course we then needed to shoot these beautiful headpieces! Who better to ask than my favourite showgirls and burlesque performers Miss Banbury Cross and Sophia St Villier, wearing stunning gowns by Naomi Neoh and Ritva Westenius and beautifully photographed by Tigz Rice at the sensuous Madam Jojos with its sumptuous Art Deco interior!
