NYC Bridal Market 2012: Maria Elena Headpieces Private Viewing

Our coverage of bridal market continues! Too many fabulous pieces were unveiled during the viewing of this Maria Elena Headpieces collection. For instance, you’ll notice a boutonniere, among other pieces, made of a Swarovski crystal fabric. This is so different and unique, as Maria Elena is the only bridal accessory designer that is using this material. Lovella Wedding Fashion Specialist Nayri was immediately smitten by a sparkling jewel cap, one of several by Maria Elena. “The second I walked in, I eyed it; it went straight on my head the entire hour we were buying!” The fact that world-renowned designer Ines Di Santo joined in on the fun was an added treat, and you’ll notice that some of us ladies couldn’t help but play dress up! Our visit to the showroom was a reminder that “girls just want to have fun.” Enjoy the collection.
