Crown of Majestic Empire: Viktoria Novak
From ancient to modern times, royal crowns, crafted by precious stones collected from all over the world, are considered the most luxurious jewels of all treasures. Crowns are not only symbols of status but also reflections of a woman's grace and elegance. 從古到今，珠寶中最奢華的，非各國國王皇后的皇冠莫屬了。從全世界各地蒐羅來的珍稀珠寶都會毫不吝嗇地用來打造皇冠。皇冠不僅象徵著地位，同時也把女性的典雅與氣質展現到超凡極致。
The new 2017 bridal collection, “The Majestic Empire” by the acclaimed Australian milliner Viktoria Novak, signifies mystical essence. Traditionally, it was believed that a crowned bride and groom become King and Queen of their new family. To this day, intricate headpieces are also typical fashionwear for many individuals, and Viktoria the “Queen of Crowns”. Refined, elegant styles filled the stages at Mercedes-benz Fashion Week this month, showcasing an evolving trend in haute couture. Viktoria’s unique designs, too, exhibited exquisite opulence commensurate with the show. Vintage roses, vine leaves and delicate stems of fragrant lavender revealed an enchanting aroma akin to the Royal Secret Garden.
The shining crowns are pieces of art which Viktoria creates personally. Leather, metals, Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls and jewels are strung together with delicacy and devotion, weaving the tenderness of the bride into each crown. “They are all individually handmade, it takes time to produce high-end quality products and it makes each piece and design so unique”. The dedication and quality reflected in Viktoria’s embellished headpieces are thus like no other. “My clients feel special with many expressing how elegant and powerful they feel. The crown just gives them a boost for confidence where they feel so comfortable and confident.” Not just for brides, the headpieces are not intended to match any particular dress or style, but rather “designed to add a complementary touch and finish to any gown.” They are the perfect way to embody a flawless femininity in any setting or style.
The Viktoria Novak brand, established in 2006 by Viktoria and her husband Tristan, has experienced exceptional success since its inception. In 2015, Viktoria’s designs were selected to be presented at the New York Fashion Week, in an historic moment. She relates, “I was the first milliner in Australia to have a solo runway show in America, in New York, or actually anywhere in the world.” With confidence radiating from her gracious smile, it’s not hard to see why her style is such a success.
2017年澳洲著名時尚設計師Viktoria Novak 以「典雅」為主題，打造新娘皇冠系列。有人說，皇冠是加冕新娘的宮廷奢望，今天卻成了凸顯個人獨特魅力的飾品。時尚界稱 Novak 為「皇冠女王」，或許因為她親手實現了許多「皇后」的夢想。
隨著今年澳洲最著名的梅賽德斯 .奔馳時尚週的出場，「典雅」和「大氣」的特質成為了鎮場之寶。回歸經典，Viktoria 利用玫瑰、葡萄葉、百合、薰衣草等自然元素，散發出的迷人芬芳，喚起那遠古亞當、夏娃時的懸念，浪漫的音符在跳動，充滿愛的串鈴耳語在空中蕩漾。
頭頂的皇冠是耀眼的，Viktoria讓愛化為手中的粒粒珍寶，將待嫁新娘的嬌羞織入皇冠中。 「每一件飾品都是我親手為她而製，如同每一個女人- 美，且獨具其特色」。透過典雅與高貴的美，散發出女人天生的魅力。「Viktoria Novak 的頭飾設計本身就是自信，這注定了佩戴者展現的氣質將是不凡和與眾不同，」Novak 說道。
2006 年 Novak 與 先 生 Tristan以自己的名字命名，創立品牌 Viktoria Novak，「2015 年，我的設計被邀請去參加紐約時尚週的走秀，這是第一次澳洲人的「皇冠」走上世界四大時尚舞台」。
「你好，我是 Viktoria Novak」，如同品牌風格，自我介紹也那麼精簡，恬淡的笑容之中散發著無比自信。
