It's no secret that I'm pretty much besotted with all things Enchanted Atelier by Liv Hart.
First I featured this Anne Of Green Gables inspired collection, then these bridal accessories inspired by Pride and Prejudice and most recently this creative collaboration with Claire Pettibone. Sigh.
Enchanted Atelier's veils, headpieces and accessory designs are a magical combination of romance, vintage charm and whimsy.
Liv works with the finest materials and artisans for each collection (Claire Pettibone, Sareh Nouri and Sophie Hallette hand loomed French lace anyone?), creates dreamy editorial campaigns featuring iconic, ethereal imagery and styles each exquisite piece to perfection.
So having the opportunity to meet Liv and see her latest collection up close (and on this stunning model) at Bridal Market was such a treat!
I'll be sharing Liv's latest FW 2014 collection for Sophie Hallette in two parts today and delving a little more into the behind the scenes gossip and photos from New York in Part 2.
The FW 2014 Collection is inspired by Enchanted Atelier's collaboration with famed French lace house Sophie Hallette. The collection features delicate hand loomed Parisian laces from their 120 year old lace patterns including the exact lace from the Kate Middleton/Alexander McQueen royal wedding gown!
As I was designing the collection this season I felt inspired by the fleeting but cherished moment when you close your eyes and bask in the warm light of the sun, and life seems ethereal. Your heart is filled with love.

The ‘Wanderlust' Headband is probably my favourite new headpiece in the collection (as seen above in the photos with model smelling/holding a tiny white and green posy of flowers) it's a netted headband made from hand loomed Sophie Hallette lace, embellished with a beaded floral motif that wraps around the forehead.
I've never seen anything quite like it and would love to see a bride rocking it on their big day!
Which is your favourite veil or headpiece from the stunning new collection?
