Spring seems to have finally hit London- hooray! So I thought it a fitting time to release my new Spring capsule collection – Sakura.

‘Sakura’ literally means ‘cherry blossom’ in Japanese. The arrival of ‘sakura’ in Japan is a celebrated event called ‘Hanami’.  Hanami is an important Japanese custom and literally means ‘viewing flowers’, but it generally indicates cherry blossom viewing. It’s said that the origin of hanami dates back to more than one thousand years ago when aristocrats enjoyed looking at beautiful cherry blossoms and wrote poems. I would love to go a Hanami festival one day but until then I will keep daydreaming about Japan and I guess this collection will have to be my Spring celebration.

Sakura is a series of hand painted brass and leather fashion accessories including hair bands, hair pins, and jewellery. The collection was designed over a grey and dull Winter when I was dreaming of  Spring to arrive and bring with it some much needed C O L O U R  Every piece has been hand spray painted in a mix of pastel blues, pinks, lilacs and metallic golds giving a random, ‘colour burst’ effect.  I wanted this collection to be affordable so prices range from £6 for a ponytail band to £28 for a leather alice band.

Sakura is available at selected stockists and also through my online store – www.annmariefaulknermillinery.bigcartel.com

Hope you like it,

This year has flown by and I can’t believe I actually managed to survive a whole year working for myself! I’m extremely excited about 2014 and everything thats already planned for it (new collections, a capsule collection for Ascot and a collaboration with Singapore based designer MAH to name a few!)

Thank you to everyone that has supported me this year and special thanks to my beautiful models Harriet, Erika and Kerry who have let me plonk my hats onto their beautiful heads to be photographed and didn’t want anything in return. Much love to you lovely girls 🙂

Happy Holidays everyone and see you in 2014!

A Christmas Update

December 4, 2013

So, Christmas is here once again!

There is still plenty of time to order a hat or headpiece in time for Christmas and New Year’s events.

The last date for ordering from my website in time to arrive for Christmas Eve, will be Friday 20th December. 

This year I have made some gift vouchers in values of £50 & £100 which I hope will make the perfect gift for any hat lover. The vouchers include a full consultation either in person at the studio, or via phone or email. The lucky recipient can either design a bespoke hat or headpiece with me, or they can order directly from my website.

The gift vouchers are printed on luxe matt card and come wrapped in matching envelopes and ribbon. Lovely.
