Add a heavenly finishing touch to your wedding dress with Yelena Smirnova`s exclusive floral headpieces from her new Gilded collection. The collection was inspired by the natural beauty of summer flowers with reference to the opulence and glamour of the Belle Époque era.
Delicate roses and daisies and beautifully stylized pearl lilies of the valley combining with intricate beadwork lace motifs evoke an unforgettable romantic spirit while gold plating detail accents create a luxurious feel with a splash of elegance. For brides who are looking to tailor their accessories to their gown, most headpieces can be recreated in specific colours and silver accents.
Yelena learnt her skills from her grandmother who was a flower maker. Each floral accessory takes hours of workmanship to create and is made with meticulous precision in a craft based around antique tools. Every single petal, stamen and leaf is sculpted with skill. This is an art form that stretches back over centuries.
