Victoria also has some great advice a little further down the blog, for brides who might need a little help when it comes to choosing the perfect headdress for their wedding.
“I’m a hopeless romantic with a passion for old movies, old music and the history of Costume, I like to think my accessories evoke the romance and glamour associated with these things as they are a constant source of inspiration to me.”
Fascinated by beads and loving all things creative from a young age, it was no surprise Victoria Fergusson chose to study Costume and Make-up for the Performing Arts at The London College of Fashion. Becoming increasingly drawn to detail, whether it be the gemstones decorating an 18thC wig or the bead embroidery on a period costume, Victoria concentrated her talents in this area. Recognising through the planning of her own wedding that bridal fashion offered unlimited potential to indulge this passion, Victoria set about creating a collection of bridal hair accessories, belts and jewellery and started her own business.
“With my background in wig and hair dressing I understand how important it is for hair accessories to fit well and create my designs not only with beauty in mind but comfort and function too. Brides often tell me how comfortable they were wearing their accessories and that they almost forgot they were wearing anything on their special day.”

I asked Victoria about her inspirations... “Very often it’s the beautiful materials I use that inspire my designs, I surround myself with an array of Swarovski beads and gemstones, freshwater pearls and other trinkets. It's hard not to see patterns and shapes forming as they tumble out onto my beading mat. I also take inspiration from the history of costume, films, stars on the red carpet and my collection of books on the history of the tiara. The trouble is finding the time to work on all the ideas that come to mind. Often I'll do a quick sketch and put it aside until I can sit and work through it.
Brides inspire me too with their ideas, they see all my designs with fresh eyes and come up with combinations I might not otherwise have considered. Consultations often result in new design ideas, which is always exciting.”
Victoria's advice for brides is...
- to have an idea how you'd like to wear your hair when discussing and trying on hair accessories. Some items are very versatile and work in most styles while others can be more limiting, so it’s important to know your accessory choice and hairstyle choice will work perfectly together.
- less is more - there really is truth in the saying. Choose one accessory piece to be the focal point and co-ordinate with smaller items.
- pick up on embellishment on your gown or perhaps a piece of heirloom jewellery you intend to wear and use this to guide you on further accessory choices. Don't get too hung up on everything 'matching' perfectly, co-ordination is what's key.
- stay true to your personal style.
