If everything in the world were a dream, Jannie Baltzer designs would fit in the most ethereal of them. Sitting on women’s heads like delicate halos of lace and hand sewn flowers. Alas, the world is not a dream but in fact, these couture headpieces are halos of lace and hand sewn flowers. I met Jannie a year ago, maybe even a little more and I’ve grown a huge admiration for her and her work. The amount of press and attention this lady gets every day from the likes of ELLE and Vogue, comes as little surprise when you see it for yourself.

I was really happy that Jannie agreed to work with us on this interview. Especially given how extremely busy she is with her 2014 collection right now. I started by asking how it all began.

What is your inspiration for this year’s collection?
My 2014 collection is truly luxurious and delicate, and is all about luminous textures and shine. This collection has exquisitely intricate beadwork and beautiful shades of honey gold, champagne, antique silver and ivory. My parents lives in a small village in South of Spain, and the nature is just gorgeous there. So this collection is inspired by the beauty of the nature and its organic shapes –
What has been the highlight so far this year?
One of my 2014 styles has just been featured in VOGUE Brazil, and that really is a huge moment for me. I worked with an awesome team to create some beautiful and unique pictures for them, and when I saw the feature,
