Beckyboo who?

THE NEW HEAD GIRL

Barbed wire, crownests, and black roses all sound like something straight out of a Stephan King novel yet seem to be on the top of everyones head this season. Over the past few years the headband has been upping the stacks within the accessory market quickly becoming the favourite statement piece for any reputable fashionista. From Fearne Cotton to Lady Gaga, everyone is still crazy for headwear and brand spanking new label Beckyboo is eagerly waiting at the front lines ready to create and supply handcrafted, stunning head pieces that won’t break the piggy bank.

HushHush exclusively speaks with the heart of soul of the project Becky Currie. We talk inspiration, grandads, and Lady Gaga. Where did Beckyboo (BB) come from? BB developed from a Sunday evening impulsive idea. I have over 30 different headbands that I have collected over the past few years and always browse Brick Lane and Portobello Market. I love their unique designs. I searched the web and bought some feathers,

flowers and elastic. From that I created some simple designs and uploaded them on Facebook. I started to get some really positive comments and this really inspired me to develop my products.I realised I had captured a niche market. What was the inspiration behind the project? Beckyboo was something that started out as a hobby. I’ve always been really into fashion and accessorising. From a young age I’d always loved having HushHush - June 29, 2010 5
