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,

Gossip Girl

November 14, 2011

It’s been an exciting start to the week at a_m_f_m (and particularly exciting if you are a Gossip Girl fan!). A few weeks ago I started working with the costume designers at Gossip Girl in New York to produce some hats and headpieces for the character Blair and also for the guests at her upcoming Royal Wedding.

The first hat they liked was a green and mustard wool brocade beret. Here it is pictured on the lovely Leighton Meester…
