Custom Made Hand Fans

Typically, almost every customer gets a different fan. I am not crazy about doing the same design over and over again. I usually ask customers to just tell me their colors and allow me 'go crazy'. They're always happy with the outcome.

I used a sequined fabric that matched the pattern on her wrapper. She loved it!

Customer feedback is key. The bride in these photos below sent me a message saying, "Thank you for my one of a kind bridal fan. Thank you for your prompt delivery and professionalism".

All About Bouquets and Flowers

I still only work with artificial roses. There are the store-bought ones and the ones I make myself.

This is one of the most exciting pieces I've worked on. This Nigerian groom decided he wanted an Ankara-themed wedding. So, his tailor made him a blazer with this beautiful Ankara fabric, and I got the rest of it to make his wife's bouquet. The plain purple fabric made the boutonnieres. They look happy yeah?

I love the fact that we can get fresh-looking roses for half the price! The photographer made this shot.

I enjoyed working with my cousin for her wedding. Her pink bouquet matched the skirt of her wedding dress, and that majestic train. We also made her veil. A very simple piece.

Presenting the Blinged-Out Bouquet. The beautiful bride is also wearing a single tier lace veil.

A mixed bouquet having faux and fabric roses; serves as a center piece at my Mum's office.

 Matching Bride and Little Bride Bouquets

 This calla lily bouquet makes the bride and I very happy!

 I recently tried my hands on some floral head wreaths. I like how these turned out.

Updating the Online Catalog

 Some of our latest jobs at the workshop.

Fascinator Nikki remains a crowd-pleaser. One of the most-requested designs yet.

This lovely variation on the popular Fascinator Nikki was worn to a High School graduation ceremony.


This fascinator can pretend to be a hat and help you not to get scolded by the Fashion Police at church.

 Here's a piece that does double duty. Wear it with or without the base. The detailed piece can be detached!

 One of my high school mothers has remained a loyal customer. She tells me, "These are my colors. Work your magic. Her being in the US is not a barrier!"

Perfect for those Nude pumps you just bought.

 As Seen On

We made the Fascinators AND Bouquets for Ugochi's bridesmaids.
