Hi, we're Modern Vintage. We love weddings, we love love & we love to sing while we set up. Our favorite part of the day is watching you, as a new couple, walk back down the aisle after the ceremony. That feeling of elation & pure joy is why we do what we do.

Modern Vintage Giveaway with BeChic Accessories!

Apr 15

That’s right, folks! We at Modern Vintage are teaming up with Hana from BeChic Accessories for our very first blog giveaway. Hana owns BeChic Accessories on Etsy, where she sells her beautiful handmade creations. Her site features facinators, birdcage veils, bridal headpieces and garters, as well as traditional pillbox hats. The romantic quality of her craftsmanship is definitely swoon-worthy. And how did she learn to create such beautiful pieces? From none other than the royal milliner to the late Queen Mum in London. Hana uses traditional millinery techniques on her work, no sewing machine – which is why we think they are so beautifully unique.

Here are a few words from Hana about her design and experience:

From an early age my mother and both grandmothers encouraged and taught me to draw, knit, sew, crochet and also embroider when I was little. After earning my psychology degree and settling my career in Human Resources, I realized I was still missing something. So I started to create again and slowly moved to millinery as its techniques range from shaping, sewing to embellishing and trimming, the possibilities are endless. I have chosen a great teacher – Rose Cory, royal milliner to late Queen Mum, also called the “milliners’ milliner”. She taught me couture millinery techniques with attention to the elaborate details. Every flower and every leaf is handmade by me, using traditional millinery technique and my own patterns. I also make my own hat blocks for blocking cocktail hats, which make my designs really unique. Premium quality fabrics, pure silks, feathers and millinery material come from shops in London, where I like to travel. Much of my inspiration is from these materials and also from my customers when working on bespoke hats. My biggest motivations for my work are lovely pictures of happy brides wearing my accessories.

Hana also takes custom orders and could work with the winner to create something totally new.
