Today I am thrilled to spotlight on the work of Sabrina Ismail of Her Curious Nature, a designer that bridges the gap between traditional milinery and current fashion trends, celebrating Londons cultural diversity.
London’s Portobello Road has always been a place that stirs curiosity and excitement in even the most uninspired of visitors.
A meander through the markets could take you past huge carved Buddha statues, to Victorian vintage jewellery and trinkets, and from vast assortments of strange and exotic fruits to delicate cupcake and flower arrangements.
Although it may not seem it at first, this melting pot of colour, style and culture could be the perfect little place to find inspiration for styling a wedding.
Sabrina Ismail certainly found it here, for her range of unconventional bespoke headwear.
The past few years have seen her Portobello-born boutique Her Curious Nature grow from a tiny milliners to a successful nationwide brand.
Their products have recently featured in Tatler and Vogue, adorned the heads of models at London’s Fashion Weekend and have become widely available on the high street for all blossoming brides thanks to department store House of Fraser.
The blend of vintage and contemporary design makes each head piece seem so unconventional and unique, without taking too much away from tradition.
Some have dashes of Eastern sparkle and others, splashes of 1920’s flapper glamour.
A firm favourite, the outstandingly romantic floral headbands create an ethereal, dreamlike look for brides, bridesmaids and guests, perfect for a summer wedding.
Their darker berry velvet head pieces, and those containing pearl tear drops and crystal adornments are perfect for a Winter or festive occasion.
I love the diversity of the collection with the the palest hues through to the most vibrant of colour.
Iparticularly love the Berry velvet flower ribbon tie.
The seasonal jewel colours are perfect for autumnal and winter big days, and the berry tones are just so statement.
