BEHIND THE SEAMS | The Paloma Collection Unveiled
Over the last few months our studio has begun to somewhat resemble a haberdashery store, as beautiful bundles of lace trims started arriving at our doorstep. Beaded, corded, stitched and sequinned – soon the cutting table (and our head space) was filled with laces and possibilities, as we began designing and creating pieces for our newest collection.
We are excited to release the Paloma collection. Paloma is the Spanish word for ‘dove’. We took inspiration from these beautiful creatures, along with the exotic styles and aesthetics of the Mediterranean. Designer and Creative Director, Tania Maras, designed these new pieces to have a staring role in your bridal look. Feminine, dramatic and utterly romantic, this collection includes decadently embellished accessories, featuring laces, beading and florals.
“The Paloma Collection is inspired by birds of flight that roam the earth and sky. Peaceful yet powerful, the collection features statement wedding capes, veils, earrings and hair pieces to showcase the beauty of the free-spirited bride,” says Tania.
We photographed the collection at Mrs Fray Bridal Concept Store, a light and airy bridal boutique in Canberra. The earthy tones and magical lighting in the store made for some beautiful backdrops. The boutique stocks dresses by Karen Willis Holmes and Prea James Bridal (along with others), which we styled with our accessories.
A talented team of creatives brought our vision to life. Tania’s talented brother, Martin Maras alongside Hayden Sault, beautifully captured the mood of the collection. We also had the expertise of Kate Lily, on hair, and Jessica Peris, on makeup. Plus the beautiful Tahlia Toth modelled the pieces with grace and style.
With Señorita, by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello playing in the background, we channelled ‘Spanish princess’ vibes during the day, to help capture the regal and exotic mood of the collection. Previously, the brand focused on pairing veils with headpieces. As an alternative, this collection is about showcasing how lace capes and statement earrings can be styled together for stunning results. Along with capes and earrings, we’ve also released new birdcage veils, crowns, headbands and hairpins, which can transform a simple dress into something very special.
