We are very pleased to confirm that we will be unveiling an exclusive vintage inspired hair accessory collection called the ‘Charleston Collection’ at the British Bridal Exhibition (BBEH) in September. Designed to co-ordinate effortlessly with our Starlet and Candlelit Collections (also being unveiled in their entirety at the BBEH), the Charleston Collection promises brides and retailers beautiful vintage inspired hair accessories designed and hand-made in England.
The collection is named after the Charleston dance – a dance which gained popularity in the 1920’s and was considered exciting and innovative - we think this is the most apt name for the collection as this collection brings a new, even more exciting element to our brand and works beautifully with the gowns in our collections. We’re delighted to have joined forces with Paula Marsh from The Vintage Sparkle Company who has created this superb vintage inspired collection exclusively for Madeline Isaac-James. Each unique piece is named after a song, dance or star from the Roaring Twenties, reflecting the excitement, freedom and ‘all that jazz’ reminiscent of that era. The collection includes gorgeous combs, tiaras and headbands – all of which are hand-made in Paula’s studio in Hampshire. Individually made to order including Swarovski components in the design, every single piece includes a tiny blue crystal and a genuine vintage pearl or crystal (taking care of three of the ‘something old, something new…’ tradition). In addition, understanding that many brides wish to incorporate mementoes of their special day in their daily lives, the collection cleverly uses working crystal brooches in certain designs which after the wedding can be carefully removed from the piece and used by the bride as a constant reminder of her wedding. Each piece is beautifully presented in a keepsake box with lashings of tissue and ribbon.
We really love the Charleston Collection and believe that this beautiful collection is perfect for brides and retailers looking for a vintage inspired hair accessory collection that encapsulates style, glamour and glitz! To see the new collection in its entirety, visit us in the Designer Room (stand D8) at the British Bridal Exhibition, 12-14 Sep 2010.
