‘Tis the season…

12 Jul

EggMag’s fashion editor Zoe Robinson explains how to do nuptials, naturally

The royal wedding may be a distant memory, but for many of us, wedding season is in full swing. For the perfect wedding accessories look no further than the sublime creations of A Alicia who crafts beautiful pieces from vintage, organic and fair trade fabrics.  There is something for everyone, from blue vintage satin garters for the bride (something old, new and blue), stunning and simple fascinators for bridesmaids or wedding guests, and pinholes for the groom and ushers.

Oh, and she also runs workshops too – perfect for some stylish hen afternoon fun (and you get to come away with something beautiful, rather than just a hangover and hazy memories of drunken hen night exploits you’d really rather forget)

If you don’t happen to have any wedding invites this year, and listening to music in a muddy field is more your thing, A Alicia has got festival season covered too with a gorgeous array of colourful pieces that would stylishly accessorise a straw Trilby and wellingtons.

If you’re going to Lovebox next weekend, have a look for A Alicia’s stall where you’ll be lucky enough to get a sneaky peak of her A/W collection which doesn’t launch officially until September.

Wedding-dong bells. Handmade, of course…

17 Mar

If you’re planning a wedding (or just attending one) make sure you get down to the Handmade Wedding Collective’s show at Craft Central this weekend. Keep costs down, support some wonderful independent businesses AND make sure your day is unique by snapping up a vintage garter courtesy of A Alicia Wedding, some striking fabric and metal jewellery by Blue Eyed Girl or a bespoke paper bouquet by Book Worm Eats Flower. There’s much, much more too – plus pick up a copy of our White Issue from tomorrow onwards.

As well as the exhibition, The Handmade Wedding Collective operates as a directory of wedding related designer-makers. Links to websites for each of the craftspeople involved in the collective can be found on the site’s ‘Buy Handmade’ pages.
