A LITTLE ABOUT ME & THE COLLECTION.
With a First Class Design Degree in tow from LUSAD, I've spent the last decade designing exquisite embellishments, patterns and accessories for a variety of boutiques and retailers across Britain and beyond, before launching my own name collection in 2013. Throughout my fashion design career, I've been fortunate enough to travel extensively for research, scouring far flung trim markets and decorative lace mills along the way looking for fresh ideas. I am always fascinated by the ways in which different cultures adorn and embellish their wares and this is a constant inspiration in my work.
Prior to Klaire Van Elton Bridal Adornments, I launched Paper-me-Happy in 2011. Supplying brides with alternative wedding flowers and decorations, my designs have been featured in Brides Magazine, Perfect Wedding, Wedding Ideas and on a variety of high-profile wedding blogs as well as being nominated as Best Bridal Industry Newcomber 2012 by Bridal Magazine.
The Klaire Van Elton 2014 collection is an eclectic & elegant suite of contemporary bridal adornments, handmade with a commitment of time and a profound admiration for beautiful laces, beads and findings. Crystals, pearls and gemstones are all used to embellish my designs creating both original and intricate accessories with exquisite attention to detail. I feel so fortunate to be able to combine my love of contempory wedding style and experience in accessory design.
Our creations tend to appeal to whimsical vintage-loving brides who are happy to break with convention and style their day their way. If you are new to this wedding planning malarky, I regularly share emerging wedding trends and advice over on my Blog, as well as DIY projects and inspiring photo shoots. Check out my Pinterest boards too for further dreamy wedding inspiration.
Every adornment I create is handmade to order in my quaint little studio based in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England. I am a proud member of Creative Hinckley and love to attend stylish wedding fairs up and down the country, please view our upcoming events and do pop along to say hello.
