Some days ago I visited the workshop of La Suerte de la Fea, this workshop is run by Carmela, a 30 year old very talented woman, who was brave enough to start a business of head-dress in Barcelona a couple of years ago.

Carmela studied Art and design but after working a bit in arts she decided to focus her carrier on designing head dress. She always loved all you can find in a haberdashery and the best way to combine all these articles and her creativity was by designing head-dress.

We spent about one hour talking about head-dress and conotiers but I could have stayed for hours talking and learning about all the materials you can use for producing  them…colorful cords, feathers, flowers,ribbons, vintage buttons, tulle, bows, leaves, lace, precious stones, sass, sinamai, soutache…All her beautiful accessorize are 100% made in Spain!!

She explained to me how important the fastening is, and the part must be on the same side as the head-dress. Also it’s not important that the head-dress has the same colour as the rest of your outfit,  so much better if it’s different!!! The flowers are always a hit for day weddings but for night weddings feather is a better choice… and a must have will be a turban!!

For creations she looks at the everyday things, urban tendencies, textures, colours, an equilibrated style…all this is important towards developing her amazing collection as it is for all the orders she gets from all around Spain, to put the last touch to your party outfit or to your wedding dress!!
