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,

Farewell Summer…

September 12, 2011

After a busy but wonderful Summer spent working on various Wedding commissions, re-stocking some London stores, exploring the surreal Isle of Rum in the Hebrides, setting up a Bridal label, back packing around Greece and finally learning how to drive, I’ve now got to pull my sleeves up and sew faster and more furiously than ever before!

I’m currently working on producing stock for 3 new stockists and an exhibition, designing a new logo and packaging and trying to prepare for a few Christmas shows. Phew!

Details of upcoming events will follow but for now, here are some beautiful Summer Brides wearing Ann-Marie Faulkner Millinery!
