Pyrite

Inspiration: Pyrite in the Southern Sun

Another gem from The School of Styling! This shoot was created by Holly of Perfectly Posh Events and captured by Sawyer Baird. The emerald green leaves in the lower gardens of Middleton Place provide the perfect, lush backdrop for the gold foiled silk organza and metallic lace of our Pyrite. Just look at that beauty glistening in the warm Southern sun.

Inspiration: Matte Gold & Metallics at The Green Building

This shoot is a true-blue wonder. We love the feminine, frothy, drama of our Oceane and the warm, textured, metallics of our Pyrite set in the industrial interior of The Green Building. The floor to ceiling windows provide magical illumination. The expansive spaces are perfect for showcasing the movement inherent in these beauties. Exposed brick, pillar candles and double exposures, who could ask for anything more?

Trunk Show and Charleston Fashion Week Wrap Up!

 I had such a blast this past weekend down in Charleston, South Carolina with our retailer Southern Protocol.  Between a runway show at Charleston Fashion Week, a cocktail party at the shop, and the trunk show, we rode a whirlwind of pretty all weekend!  Thank you to everyone who came to any or all of it!  It was quite the homecoming.

Behind the Scenes, 2015 Runway Show

If you've been following us over on instagram or facebook, then you've been catching all the sneak peeks of our 2015 runway show, held October 13th at the beautiful 404 NYC space!

With origins in ancient Egyptian culture, our journey takes us from the mysticism of the sacred scarab to the magic and wonder of the study of alchemy.   Through gold detailing, geode inspired embellishment, and relaxed but powerful silhouettes the 2015 Carol Hannah collection celebrates feminine strength and mystery.

The team over at Karma Flowers perfectly captured our vision with the decor, incorporating mercury glass, mixed metallics, and a beautiful collection of geodes.

First comes the runway, then comes the party!  Mint Catering created our signature ginger fizz champagne cocktail, which we'll be sharing the recipe for here shortly as well!

A thousand thank you's to our talented friend Matthew Ree for capturing these behind the scenes moments!
