Fashion Month is in full swing! Since I don’t have the privilege of attending New York Fashion Week this year I have been following the live feeds like crazy. One trend that I have noticed popping up in almost every show is hair accessories.
Prior to fashion week, Chanel was the first to kick off the trend with a floral pom pom during Couture Week in Paris (Full Runway Show). This look has been my favorite so far because it is light and etherial, perfect for spring. This look is so simple and easy to recreate. In four simple steps you will be looking like you just walked off the Chanel runway.
Runway to realway is possible, people!
For this project you will need one small hair elastic, needle, thread and fabric. I found these pre-cut flower petals at Michael’s and they ended up working perfectly for this project. It saved me a lot of time cutting out individual pieces.
Sew four petals together for the base of your flower. Next, add on 6 layers of four petals to the top of the base flower.
After step 1 is completed, finish off your base flower by sewing three petals on top. Followed by two petals and then one single petal in the center of your flower.
Secure the finished flower to the hair elastic.
Once the elastic and flower are attached, fold your flower in half. Then, push your needle through both sides of the flower. Continue piercing both sides of the flower while wrapping your thread around the elastic until it is secure.
The final product should look like this. Wrap your new hair accessory around a low pony or loose braid like shown during the Chanel show for a beautiful spring look.

For Fall 2015 Fashion week designers have been opting for a slightly edgier look with sleeked back ponies and hard accessories. Some designers we saw showcasing this look were Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Honor and Suno.
