margolily gets to know you

Friday, July 29th, 2011

One of the very and many cool things about Margolily is working with brides and their wedding parties to create their perfect design, getting to know their style and taste to create a headpiece that suits them perfectly. It means I get to experiment with all kinds of styles for myself…!


Lucky Margolily family and friends get this treatment all the time, but especially in the summer time when weddings are a go go! July and August take Margolily to three very close and special weddings…and knowing the brides so well means knowing who will choose sparkling, rhinestones and bling, who needs a demure, vintage style piece and who will fancy intricate, simplicity to set off their dress! It does mean I’ve seen all the dresses before the big day…though I still need waterproof mascara! Can’t wait to bring you photos from these weddings but in the meantime here is a snap of a stunning headpiece for a dear friend who will be the one to turn heads and carry off seriously stunning style this weekend!

Gorgeously happy photos from beautiful Lesley on her wedding day last year.

We worked on the design together at Kakao by K in Edinburgh to create a stylish and unique headpiece to work with Lesley’s stunning butterfly print dress.

Lesley has given valuable advice in perfecting headpieces with netting and veiling and had this to say about Margolily too… 

“My experience of Margolily was exciting, interactive and thoroughly recommended. The design consultation was relaxed and creative, you listened to my thoughts and changed some of them to make it all work better. I was totally confident that you knew what you were talking about. I loved wearing my headpiece and my wedding guests were gushing over it!!  My piece will be cherished forever!”

Thanks to many stylish brides and wedding guests I am in love with my Margolily colour palette just now! Softest grey, dusky pink, pearl, blush and nude. I feel as though I’m sewing in a French fashion house rather than a Glasgow tenement!

It has been a wild few weeks of stitching for summer weddings but as the Edinburgh festival gets under way here is a wee glimpse of the margolily tartan and tweed collection headed for the fabulous Fabhatrix in the Grassmarket.

Margolily headpieces are more stylish than a Jimmy Hat afterall!
