Fashion hair accessories at the Morrin Center

7 November 2016
/ / /

Yesterday we made the photoshoot for Capelio’s next fashion collection!

To organize a photoshoot for a new collection is always tedious: you want to surround yourself with the best people who understand your vision and who you can trust, you want to create an atmosphere that reflects the artistic direction of the collection and of course, you want to create breathtaking  photos that will inspire your clients. The process often involves many questiones you ask yourself, with a lot of stress and emotions, especially when you’re a perfectionist. In fact, a designer recently told me that just before her own photoshoot for her new collection, she felt none of her clothes were up to what she had envisonned because of the stress. So it’s not just me then!

But in the end everything went well, largely thanks to the talented people involved who all did a masterful job. So it’s really important for me to thank them properly here :

Angela Baughman and Olivia Eadie of Castle Coiffure;

Simon Trudeau, filmmaker;

Yvon Latulippe, photographer;

Camille Lavoie, makeup;

The models Audrey, Rebekah, Emilie and Charo;

Manon Fortin of the Morrin Center;

And finally Sonia Plourde, designer, for lending us her amazing clothes!

I thank them all from the heart for their incredible commitment, their immense talent and their great cherfulness! Not only did we all worked together to make beautiful photos, the day was also incredibly fun!

The wait until May 2017, when the collection will be launched, will be difficult… But you’ll get a chance to see few previews here and there on our Facebook page, as well as a special Instagram account created especially for the collection : @murdermysterycollection Make sure you also subscribed to our newsletter so you don’t miss anything :

Black birdcage veil and feathers hair piece

1 October 2016
/ / /

Even with wedding season stretching later and later in the year, autumn often means the start of the creative process for the next collection of wedding hair accessories, as well as our limited-edition special collections, like the Butterfly Effect this year and the Pin-Up collection before that. Of course, the creative process never really stop : we’re always picking up new ideas, listenning to our customers’ desires and needs, getting inspired by materials, pictures, movies and the like.

Autumn is when you take it all in, start playing with the materials to do what will become eventually the samples of the next wedding and fashion accessories collections, plan the photoshoot and all the communication tools. During this creative process, sometimes there are accessories that won’t make the final cut even if they’re beautiful and we love them, because sometimes the material is in short supply, we already have similar pieces in the collections, etc.

While we were working on the next limited-edition fashion collection, to be launched in May 2017, we created a beautiful black birdcage veil with feathers on a hair clip. While we do love it and it would work well with the follow-up collection to The Butterfly Effect, unfortunately because of the material used we couldn’t make more than one piece. Look at this beauty :

But good news : it is now available in our “one of a kind” section on Etsy! Like the summer/autumn flower crown with red flowers, you can get it now and you will be the only one in the world to own this beautiful creation!

Its classy look means you can wear it to many events with elegance and style. Get it quick : not only there are only one available, but this bircage veil is perfect for a Halloween party!

Vintage-inspired jewel headpiece with birdcage veil

10 July 2016

Often, a bespoke wedding veil or bridal headpiece created as a custom order for a bride might become part of our  regular collection of wedding hair accessories. However, sometimes it’s not possible, even when the bridal headdress is very pretty and brings a lot of positive feedback on our social medias. This was the case of the bespoke birdacge veil with a headpiece of feathers and a jewel piece on a hair clip, crafted for the lovely Esmeralda few years ago before her elopement. To refresh your memory, here are two pictures of the stunning bride wearing her bespoke Capelio headpiece on the wedding day:

Since then we have received some enquiries regarding regarding this particular bridcage veil & headpiece, as well as how chic and glamour this wedding accessory was with its touch of vintage. However, to make this hair accessory, we have to take the curly feathers of the Plum Fairy headband, which is less than ideal.

But good news for those who love this bridal birdcage veil: it is now possible to buy one in our Etsy store! There will be only one available and the accessory will probably never be part of our regular collection for the bride, so here’s your chance to get your hands on this superb vintage-inspired birdcage veil for the bride!

What to do with your wedding hair accessory after the big day?

20 September 2015
/ / /

The wedding season is not over yet, but many of the 2015  brides have already had the chance to say “Yes” to their partners. And now that the big day is behind you… what will you do with your veil or wedding hair accessory? Here are some ideas!


Keep your wedding accessory

Why not keep your bridal headpiece with your dress, carefully protected from sun or other potential damage sources? Maybe you’ll have a chance to wear it again, for example if you decide to renew your vows! A bit like your wedding dress, it might be interesting to keep your bridal headdress or wedding veil to pass on to your children, if the opportunity arises. Like our past client Emilie and her mom, who used the mother’s bridal hair accessory, from her own wedding thirty years ago, so that we could make one birdcage veil headress for the bride, two hair accessories bridesmaids, three small headpieces for the flower girls and a fascinator for mother of the bride : 
Use your veil or headpiece for a trash the dress
If you’re planning a Trash the Dress with your wedding dress, why not add your veil or bridal fascinator? Of course, if you choose to destroy your wedding gown, maybe you want to keep your wedding hair accessory as a token if this incredible, memorable day. But if you are 100% sure you aren’t going to wear it again, like in the case of a wedding veil, why not give it your all for the photos?

Use your veil or headdress for a boudoir photoshoot

Another trend in wedding photography is the boudoir-style photoshoot. If you want to do it, why not use your wedding veil or headdress for the pictures and give the final result to your partner to celebrate yourfirst anniversary? The headpiece will be a beautiful reminder of that special day, in addition to bring a touch of elegance and femininity to the photos!

Adapt your bridal accessory
… so you can wear it again! Some will shorten their wedding gown to wear it as a cocktail dress afterwards, although very few women have this opportunity, depending on the design you chose. It is much easier to wear your wedding hair accessory after the big day : in some cases you can wear it just the way it is or simply by folding the birdcage veil and fixing it with pins, for example.

It’s a bit more complicated with a veil, unfortunately. So if you know you want to wear your bridal accessory after the wedding, you have to consider this when making your final choice for your wedding accessory – or talk to us about it, since we can discuss with you ways we can simply adapt your headdress so you can wear it as a fashion accessory. Let your imagination run wild : the tulle  of a veil can be used to make fabric flowers that will go on a headband, for example, or to make several accessories as gifts!

Give your headpiece to a loved one

A wedding is a huge affair, for the bride and groom as well as for a large number of people, family or friends. Why not give your bridal hair accessory to show how grateful you are for their efforts to a person who is dear to you, like your maid-of-honor, a bridesmaid or a member of your family was particularly involved in the organization? Not to mention, a wedding is sometimes the opportunity for other couple to propose : If one of your friends got engaged during your wedding, why not wish her happiness by offering your wedding accessory?
… Or to a less well-off bride
There may be charities near you who can take your wedding hair accessory and gown and give them to a bride who can’t afford them. If no charities exist in your city, you can always ask your family or on your social networks if they know anyone in need getting married soon, so you can make a fellow bride very happy and probably very grateful!

Wear it again at the Dîner en Blanc 

If there is a Dîner en Blanc in your town, treat yourself and use the event as an excuse to wear your wedding accessory! Here are some suggestions of Capelio fascinators styled in various different looks specifically for the Dîner en Blanc :
