Here’s a little bit about the collection from the designer herself:
“For this first collection, I wanted the focus to be about the fabrics and textures for each piece, all while keeping each item timeless. I referred back to the basics of millinery and the techniques I learned in classes at FIT. As for inspiration for each piece, I looked at vintage hats and embellishments found in flea markets, antique shops, and my grandmother’s cedar chest (a favorite spot of mine to visit as a child). This collection is filled with nostalgia for the place I left behind (my home state of Louisiana) but is only a preview for the wonderful things that are to come for Preston & Olivia.”
Isn’t it kind of divine? Such beautiful pieces and the styling from Merci New York (and the photography of course) is gorg.
And now the best part… the giveaway! Dara has graciously offered to give this double flower halo headpiece to one lucky reader. Leave a comment and we’ll select and email the winner at the end of the week. Buenas suerte!
