I was ecstatic to have been invited along to the Grainne Maher Millinery Debut at House of Fraser, extremely excited to put my therapy to the test. However, my excitement soon waned into disappointment when I realised the event was slap bang in the middle of moving house. So, unfortunately no debut for me, however word is Grainne truly astounded with her offerings.
Grainne Maher was named Northern Ireland Fashion Designer of the Year and clearly this has spurred her on even more. Creativity in bucketloads this lady can shape materials in such an exquisite way it seemed only appropriate to share a few images with you (plus, I really did miss writing for you guys!! Whether you read or not lol)

The Pegasus Perspex Headpiece is bright, showstopping and I honestly think Andy Warhol would have absolutely loved this piece in particular. Shown here with the Pegasus Pendent.
This Pluck & Devour LUXE necklace is, without a doubt, one of my favourite designs I've ever laid eyes on. It's sharp but soft with the flowers bringing the edge of femininity. Clever and beautiful. Lethal combination!
We've had ''edgy feminine'' and now with the Butterfly Hat you can indulge in full throttle ethereal. How amazing is this piece?? It's heavenly. A real statement piece and an investment piece you've only got to ask yourself one question... can you afford to walk away from it? I don't think I'd be strong enough, I know I'd fall in love with it if I ever met it...
Last but in no way least. My favourite. My absolute pulls at my fashion heart strings favourite?
Gold dress stat! Oh. My. Word. I'd love to see this in it's full real life glory. This Rhinestone Bridal Headpiece is a vintage lovers D-REAM! For formal events, dressy dinners, cocktails, bridesmaids, brides... you could wear it again and again. There is no point in me lying to you here, I'd take to wearing it around the house. I'd stop in every doorway to perfect that vintage faraway stare for 3 seconds then move on. I'm not kidding. Really, I'm not. Can you imagine how you'd feel wearing this? I can. That's the power of good design and craftsmanship.
Grainne Maher we salute you!
