ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS ON STYLE ME PRETTY

It is a great honor to have my new Artistry of handmade Collections featured on Style me Pretty with photography by Caroline Tran….

As the dark days of winter recede and the promise of a new spring emerges, green shoots break ground and show themselves, soon to erupt into a rich floral garden. As the bright seasons of spring and summer approach, my creative energies are infused with the promise of light, joy and the glorious renewal that ushers in each new cycle of life.

WOOD NYMPH HEADPIECE

My 2015 Spring/Summer Collection is firmly focused on distinctive design created with hand detailed craftsmanship. In a world of mass production, my studio continues to grow and flourish by staying true to this handmade design sensibility, paired with a commitment to uncompromising craftsmanship. This season I am showcasing a range of styles and shapes that celebrate artistry, glamour and the romance of all things beautiful.

DESERT PRICES BOHO HEADPIECE

Embracing the design aesthetic personified by craftsmen in centuries past, my new collection harks back to the lush creations of medieval times. This season’s head ornaments are crafted with multiple layers of delicate metal florals, hand-fabricated flowers and leaves paired with softer organic materials, accessories to crown a bride in refined elegance. To celebrate a special woman on her singular day, I’ve designed highly detailed halos, tiaras, crowns, vines and flourishes to complement a selection of sublime veils.

I am so fortunate and privileged to work with a talented creative team who enhance my design efforts. As captured by the talented photographer Caroline Tran, my 2015 Collection features stunning gowns by Claire Pettibone. Lindsey Burwell provided wonderful Hair and Makeup services, and our beautiful model is Anjelina Afanasyeva.

 

MUSE HAIR STICK

The exquisite artistry of medieval design, the hallmark of my 2015 Spring/Summer Collection, delivers the opulence of a bygone era to today’s bride, capturing the splendor of courtly love and timeless romance.

With love,

Erica

 

ERICA ELIZABETH DESIGNS RIDES LINUS BIKES

Ever season after shooting my new collections, I stay up until 2:00 am editing the images. I can’t help myself as I get so lost in time staring at the lovely film shots.

Caroline Tran & I have so much fun with her little kids making silly faces while we let things take a life of their own. I enjoy working this way with someone so kind & gentle as Caroline.

Lately my sweetheart David & I have been having too much fun riding our bikes around the Griffith Park loop & all over Los Angeles. I have found that after years of grinding away on uncomfortable mountain bikes, on scary dirt roads, I am enjoying cruising on an upright old fashion Linus bike. I call her Glady’s after one of my favorite characters bike in Allen Brady’s Charming Flavia De Luce novels.

We used Glady’s in this shoot filling her basket with fresh flowers from the Los Angeles Flower Mart with presents on her back rack.

Here are a couple cuties with our adorable Anjelina on my crème colored Linus Dutchi.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Caroline Tran!

Many thanks to Claire Pettibone for always being so generous in lending her gowns.

 We love you Claire!

Lindsey Burwell who is one women who knows hair!
