Bridal Style: ‘Divine Deco and Floral Fantasy’ The 2013 Accessories Collection by Debbie Carlisle

For regulars to the Blog you will know that I am a MASSIVE fan of Debbie Carlisle, not only does she make THE most beautiful vintage inspired crystal bouquets but she also makes the most stunning accessories in the form of headbands, hair clips, cuffs, sashes and garters. As well as that Debbie is local to me here in Sheffield and is a good friend of mine. So when she told me about the launch of her new 2013 accessories collection that went live on Monday I knew I just had to share all this amazing sparkly goodness with you!

Debbie Carlisle

The new Collection contains 12 headpieces  inspired by Deco and floral styles.

Debbie said: ‘The six ‘Divine Deco’ headpieces were inspired by the sumptuous glamour of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and also by Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire. Like these on-screen dramas, all the headpieces combine elegance with a slightly decadent edge that is perfect for brides who want to make a stylish statement on their wedding day.’

Debbie Carlisle

‘The six ‘Floral Fantasy’ pieces are my take on the blowsy flower crowns favoured by Lana Del Rey but with an ethereal twist inspired by the fantastical images conjured up by Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. This collection mixes dreamy textured fabrics with colour, warmth and beading which are perfect for brides looking for individual glamour without full-on sparkle and shine.’

Debbie Carlisle

‘While there is a strong vintage feel to the new designs there are also modern touches with forehead bands and off-centre headpieces set on my trademark organza ribbon which gives them a slightly relaxed festival-chic edge as well as making them very comfortable and light to wear.’

‘When designing a collection I always try to give brides plenty of choice about how they wear their pieces, from ‘Lottie’ – which can also be worn as a choker – to ‘Lily’ and ‘Delores’ which can double as a sash. I like to think that brides will be able to wear their headpiece again after their wedding day – maybe to dress up a little black dress or to wear to a ball or other special occasion.’

Personally I LOVE this collection and am gagging to find some amazing event that I can wear one of thee beauties to! I love the shiny art deco details along with the pretty flora’s  I mean what is there not to like!!, so get shopping ladies!………..here’s the full collection
