"REIGN" Season 4 on THE CW is in it's last season
The story of Mary Queen of Scots is not exactly accurate BUT the costuming is amazing: http://fashionista.com/2013/10/reign-costume-designer-interview
I have been so inspired by the setting and use of beautiful designs and fabrics
Please enjoy this video My Inspiration from"REIGN"
Fleur de Lee had many adventures in 2016- It was exciting to be part of the New Jersey Flower show in February Focusing on my love for all things Alice in Wonderland. In May visiting with Universal Costumes. Seeing first hand the creations from so many Movies and meeting designer.truly a dream come true. But I think the one that truly was the years best was having the honor of joining with Cheyma Ben Hassine from https://www.cheyma.com to do New York Fashion Week. Cheyma's beautiful designs and Fleur de Lee Jewelry on the runway.

2017 has already began with New Vision and creativity. A customer from Germany asked if I would reproduce a selection from the series "Reign". And so this inspired me to start a line of Crowns, Tiaras and Headbands
As told by my dear friend Georgean Graham:
The Proust's Muse on display at the Museum at FIT is a must see and should be put on your to do list....
The time spans approx from 1880-1930..all the gowns designed for Countess Greffulhe...from fabric to cut and design...it's all stunning..
My favorite is Lilly
its midnight velvet with a beautiful display of ivory colored whisps of lilies that flow from the bodice to the train..
All gowns including shoes and silk stockings were expertly stitched ..layers of pleats..brocade..one piece after the other.
It's worth the time and effort to come and enjoy the God gifted talent on display
Early this summer 2016 a Lovely Fashion Designer from Paris found me on ETSY. There started a collaboration Between Cheyma Ben Hassine www.cheyma.com and Fleur de Lee Jewelry.
Cheyma's inspiration for this seasons collection was Marie Antoinette. Her fashions were full of fantasy and romance. Fleur de Lee Jewelry is forever journeying to the past to find such inspiration.
