Debbie Carlisle 2015 Collection Revealed
Isabella headband in silver from the Enchanted collection.
Each piece in the Enchanted collection is available in gold or silver.
The wired pieces are incredibly versatile and can be worn as hair vines which will curve around your head almost like ivy – giving you lots of choice about how and where you wear these pieces. There are lots of examples of ways to wear them here and on my website but the options are literally endless, allowing you to really use your imagination when it comes to accessorising your look. These wired vines are by their nature quite delicate but I have used a strong wire which allows the longer strands to be moulded into shape to curve around the head or over or into a hair style, giving you even more room for personalisation.
Some of the pieces in Limelight were inspired by art deco design, while others owe more to the Hollywood glamour of screen sirens from the 1930s through to the 1950s, mixing geometric shapes with more fluid lines to create pieces that have their roots in vintage design but with a contemporary feel which will appeal to fashion-
Today is a very special day for me – I get to finally share my new 2015 collection of bridal accessories with you!
Arabella crystal headband and cuff from the Limelight collection.
The entire Enchanted collection is available in both silver and a gorgeous warm antique gold tone – giving you plenty of choice when it comes to choosing your wedding day look. Most of the Enchanted designs are wired together with gold or silver plated wire and use intricately carved mother of pearl flowers which gives the pieces a more relaxed and bohemian feel. The silver versions use clear faceted Czech crystals mixed with tiny pale ivory freshwater pearls, while the gold versions use beautiful antique gold faceted Czech crystals which are partly glazed to create a delicate and warm golden shimmer.
Anna comb with mask veil from the Limelight collection.
All of the Limelight headpieces work well with my existing birdcage veil designs, and I’ve also added a new ‘mask veil’ made from the same soft fine French netting which pins at either side of the head and is a great way to wear a veil with a headpiece which can be easily removed later in the day without having to take off your headband or comb.
The ‘mask veil’ is also available as a set with two small combs called ‘Anna’ which you can use to pin the veil in place at each end and then remove the whole piece and re-
Now all that remains for me to do is to show you the Enchanted and Limelight collection in its entirety -
