Maria Elena Headpieces Lovella Bridal Interview

In anticipation of our upcoming Maria Elena Headpieces trunk show (which we’re so excited for!), we had the pleasure of speaking with Maria Elena. Yes, THAT Maria Elena, designer all-mighty of bridal accessories for both women and men. We discussed Jennifer Lopez, Paris and what’s to come during bridal week this October. Read on…

Q: Where do you find inspiration for your designs? 

A: Most of my inspiration comes from the 20s & 30s…  An era of bold accessories, royal weddings and traveling abroad.

Q: Your Miami-based company already has an extensive lineup of fabulous pieces, like bridal headbands and fascinators, earrings and purses. Any plans to venture into other areas?  

A: As you know we also design for men – boutonnieres and cufflinks – so I would love to dedicate more time to that and also expand on our evening wear jewelry.

Q: If you could custom design evening wear accessories for any celebrity to wear on the red carpet, who would it be?

A: Jennifer Lopez. She’s a beautiful, strong, and accomplished hispanic woman.

Q: Do you have any style tips or advice for brides-to-be? 

A: Take a chance… try new things… go out of the box when choosing your accessories. But most of all, enjoy the process. This should be one of the most enjoyable times of your life!

Q: What new accessory trends should we look forward to seeing on the runway during bridal week in October?

A: I think we’re going to see some color…  not a lot but some…  definitely bold, statement pieces.  Our Spring collection is based on “A walk in the Garden”….
