Bijou Van Ness 2012 Bridal Collection

If you are a bride-to-be with a penchant for elegance from European 20th century fashion with a bit of Hollywood glam mixed in, you will simply LOVE the haute couture detailing presented in 2012 bridal headpiece collection from Bijou Van Ness. As a leading couture millinery, the exquisite headpiece designs of Rehn Dudukgian are seen on Hollywood trendsetters and have been featured in periodicals such as 944, LA Times, and Brides Magazine, just to name a few.

When asked about her passion, Bijou Van Ness she shares her favorite quote by Lilly Daché: “A hat is an expression of a woman’s soul. It is something that she wears on her head, but it belongs to her heart. It is the keynote of her personality, the finishing touch that makes her look beautiful, smart, and sure of herself.”

Impeccably fusing the romantics of 20th century fashion in Europe with the distinct style that marked the beginning of Hollywood’s infamous glamour, Bijou Van Ness embodies just that in each and every uniquely designed hat. Founder, Rehn Dudukgian, who currently resides in the heart of Hollywood, but has lived everywhere from Paris to Singapore, designs each hat by hand with pure silks, fine crystals, and vintage brooches. These are one-of-a-kind materials that have been imported from all over the world. With Rehn being inspired not only by her travels, but by her acute sense for the idiosyncrasies encompassing each and every era of fashion, a new line of hers is always sure to be more stunning than the last.
