Richmond, VA (PRWEB) February 8, 2008
Something old is new again in bridal jewelry. Designer Mandy Greenan is creating original hair jewelry for brides out of vintage rhinestone costume jewelry. The Vintage Bride collection by Tigerlilly is currently made up of 12 headpieces and hair clips, but new pieces will be added throughout the year.
Greenan, whose company, Tigerlilly Jewelry, is based in Richmond, VA, has been collecting vintage jewelry from flea markets and antique shows for the last five years. The vintage finds are then paired with modern elements like feathers, Russian netting, and crystals to create modern and chic accessories.
There is a strong trend towards vintage and classic looks in bridal fashion, according to Greenan. "It's a fun way to incorporate some of your own personal style. These are not pieces that you can buy anywhere -- they are all completely one of a kind creations."
Tigerlilly is a leader in the bridal accessory industry. Tigerlilly is regularly featured in national bridal magazines, including Brides, Modern Bride, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Bridal Guide, and In Style Weddings. Mandy has shown her collection at Mercedes Benz fashion week in Bryant Park, and has been featured on wedding specials on the WE network, Lifetime, and the Knot TV.
