Vintage botanical prints have not only seen a re-emergence on the homewares front but have been recently translated into high fashion on the global catwalks (see Miu Miu and Pucci).
Leaves, branches, plants, fern prints – nature takes a step back to basics – design inspiration from time immemorial is revisited once more.
We are delighted to see this trend filter through to the bridal market in the form of the most delicate filigree botanical features on dresses and accessories.
In keeping with this trend (fab one for Spring/Summer 2012 brides) we have introduced fabulous hints of foliage in our latest designs.
Layering original vintage components ensure impactful centrepieces (replicating foliate patterns on many antique pieces)….while keeping the design simple and pared back lends the ultimate touch of delicacy and femininity to your perfect bridal accessories!
OMG how fabulous was Kate Middleton’s wedding dress and bridal jewellery? She opted for a stunning timeless, elegant feel with more than a hint of vintage glamour (very Grace Kelly-esque).
Her stunning tiara, her ‘something borrowed’ was surely made for a princess! See similar ones at our website http://www.vintagebridalaccessories.co.uk
Her diamond earrings, a present from her mum and dad, complimented her tiara beautifully with their classic diadem drop, reflecting vintage trends in our range.
To complete your vintage regal look see also our fab range of repurposed bracelets and necklaces (made from original vintage components), everything you need for your inner princess!
