Grab a tissue and check out their wedding video.  Angela shown bright in our Tourmaline, with a custom sleeve created from the Polaris Wrap. She topped her look off with our Braided Sparkle belt.

Real Weddings: Meet Alana

Alana and Chris tied the knot in one chic, Californian, winery wedding. The mix of ivories and nudes that Alana chose for her bridesmaid palette are the perfect compliment to her Tourmaline gown. We love the rustic elegance of the Soda Rock Winery. You may think you've seen a chandelier in a barn before but LOOK AT THIS ONE!!! Congratulations you two.

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.
