Precious Hair Accessories for Wedding Occasions
You may know the saying “A woman without lipstick is like a cupcake without icing”… When talking about wedding, a bride without hair jewelry is like a make-up without hydrating cream… You don’t want to see it happening.
Colette Malouf is a designer of hair accessories based in New York City. The numerous couples who travel to the city to get married inspire and encourage her to look for the right mix of fabrics and materials. Her collections grow according to the trends of every age as witness some pieces in her last collection. In fact, the Hand crocheted wire and Swarovski crystal headstrap would complete to perfection bohemian style brides this summer.
The attic of her childhood family home is where Colette sources and energizes the on-going inspirations within her collections. Couture gowns, kidskin gloves, leather suitcases, ostrich feathers and beautifully crafted objects from the 1920s underlay her appreciation of beauty and the natural elegance in her collections.
Colette was born in Manhattan into a Lebanese family, who settled in New York at the turn of the century. Her grandfather, a son of a prominent silk harvester, brought the caftan to the US, and in the 1920’s launched ‘Perfect Negligee’, a luxurious line of eveningwear.
