Rose Willett Designs – The Blossoms Collection

Rose Willett is fast becoming the go-to designer when it comes to beautiful bridal headbands and jewellery. The award winning designer created the stunning piece that model Georgia Horsley wore when she married Danny Jone of McFly, which was heavily featured in Hello magazine. Now Rose has launched her latest collection, The Blossoms, which is perfect for brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests who want to make a beautiful impact.

Rosie Willett is a fashion phenomenon. Her wedding tiaras and hair accessories are much sought after and regularly selected appear in magazines like ‘Brides’, ‘You and Your Wedding’ and Wedding Ideas.  As well as creating the exquisite Georgia wedding hair vine , Rosie has also designed a number of pieces for television, including Coronation Street and Hollyoaks.

Rosie’s latest collection, once again, showcases her talent and the inspiration she finds for her designs in nature. The Blossoms Collection is reminiscent of wandering plants and twisting vines, which come in the form of hair vines that can drape down the back of your hair, and combs and headbands which can work with both long and shorter hairstyles. The collection was inspired by the headpiece that Rosie designed and created for her own wedding, so is clearly a label of love.

Rosie’s designs use a host of precious and semi precious stones, including Mother of Pearl flowers, freshwater pearl and clusters of Swarovski crystal, this gives them a beautiful vintage feel and makes them perfect to match with pretty much any wedding dress. These are romantic, almost ethereal designs that would be the ultimate finishing touch to any wedding outfit, but I also think you could wear something like this to a garden party, prom or Summer ball to great effect.

Zatchels celebrates its 1st Birthday in style!

If you were asked to name the hottest British accessory  Brand of the moment, you would probably say Zatchels. You can’t pick up a magazine or turn on the television without seeing a variety of the super special leather satchels being carried by some super hot star. Jessie J has one, Millie Mackintosh has one, Cheska Hull loves hers. Zatchels are ultra cool, totally beautiful in a myriad of designs and best of all, highlight the Best of British design and manufacturing.

Last week CiCi PR hosted a very special press day at the Backstage Fashion Agency to celebrate Zatchels upcoming first birthday. The brains behind Zatchels, Jan Swain Clarke and Dean Clarke were there to introduce guests through the complete Zatchels collection, from Satchels, barrel bags and saddle bags. Every design was on view, from seasoned favourites like the cracked leather collection and the Union Jack collection, to brand new designs like pastel saddle bag collection and the fluorescent floral Satchel collection. I totally fell in love with the new larger sized saddle bag in the neon green colour – a definite summer must have.

The press day was a perfect opportunity to see touch and feel all the wonderful bags. It was also great to have a chat with Jan about the collections, including the wonderful new men’s range that is such a fantastic addition to the collection. It was also a wonderful surprise to be able to choose a Zatchel barrel bag to take home, I chose a fantastic orange polka dot bag and squealed when I found it contained Bourjois make-up.

As the day turned to evening, the celebrity Zatchel fans turned out in force for an exclusive VIP event. Celebrity guests in attendance  included Mcfly and their girlfriends, Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue , actress Louisa Lytton, TV stars Phil Turner & Gary Cockerill, presenter and model Lizzie Cundy, Desperate Scousewifes star Ellissa, Actress Sarah Bernard, Radio 1’s The Mac Twins, Chanel 5’s Minnie Stephenson, Itv1’s Day Break Kirsty McCabe, winner of Katie Price’s ‘Signed’ and newly crowned Miss London Amy Willerton , fashionista Quentin Jones, Style icon Prince Cassius, and presenter Laura Hamilton.
