Working closely with Jenny Packham for seven years means that you pick up a thing or two about weddings. Which is why were particularly excited about new bridal accessories boutique Millany.com the business baby of Tamsin Ridgwell, Packhams former brand and PR director.
With almost a decade of experience producing catwalk shows, shoots and working closely with the stylists of celebrities including Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz and Miranda Kerr, Tamsins eye for perfection is flawless a boon for those sourcing their dream finishing touches for their wedding.
I wanted to bring an innovative, contemporary style and shopping environment to brides internationally, Tamsin tells us. A bride in Japan has the same exposure to style references and influences as a bride in Los Angeles. We believe that a large number of women want to project a style reflective of their ready-to-wear style choices and not the dated princess and tiara style.
In other words, the Millany bride knows what she likes and doesnt want to be bound by tradition.
She looks to the runway and red carpet for her style influences, Tamsin explains. She is internationally and culturally aware, independent and wants her style to be reflective of how she defines herself day-to-day, from her hair and make-up to her dress and of course, her accessories.
