Sheena Holland is the original feather pad headband creator. Her visually stunning designs have graced the pages of fashion magazines, such as Vogue.
London-born Sheena studied fashion under the designer Katharine Hamnett. She then went on to make wedding headwear and to design large floral, wire and concrete sculptures in London. She has worked for the likes of Elton John's 54th birthday, HRH The Queen Mother's 100th birthday, Michael Jackson’s 'World' tour, and films such as 'The Mummy' and 'Sense and Sensibility'.

London-born Sheena has been making wedding headdresses for the last 16 years. As a former florist in London, Sheena started making headresses for brides with fresh flowers and wire but always thought it a shame that they died after a day or two, especially when they took so many hours to make.
Sheena now creates one-off vintage and feather headbands, bridal tiaras and jewellery made from vintage materials using re-worked leather, antique vintage jewellery and feathers, combining fashion, shapes and colours from floristry. The jewellery is handpicked and sourced at nearby markets so is either British or sometimes German. Sheena uses a lot of Aurora Borealis (crystals) because she feels the jewellery has a bridal feel and fantasy element.
Her designs have sold to many people including singers Pink and Lily Allen and more recently Alan Carr.
Sheena’s bespoke pieces start at £145 and are available to buy from Sheena's online shop at www.sheenaholland.com
