Hair Accessories Australia
Madeleine Petit and Bernard Thiesson had a shared vision of bringing Parisian fashion to Australia. In 1986 this dream was realised, and accessory label Paris Mode was born, Sydney now had a slice of Paris on its doorstep.
In the early days of Paris Mode, Madeleine and Bernard worked tirelessly around the clock, producing hair bows and headbands to fulfil large orders. It wasn’t long before Paris Mode was stocked in luxury department store David Jones – where it is still carried to this day! Over the years Paris Mode continued to grow and soon expanded the selection of French accessories on offer to now include jewellery, fragrances and sunglasses. However, in the three decades since the label’s inception Paris Mode’s dedication to quality and excellence in craftsmanship has not wavered.
French Made Headbands Online
When Paris Mode began offering French fashion to the Australian market, hair accessories were the first things available. Beginning with only hair bows and headbands, the selection of hair accessories available today has expanded to also include claw clips, side combs, barrettes and more.
From this extensive range of hair accessories, the most popular styles are the Alice bands. Designed in Sydney and then handcrafted in Paris by expert craftsmen, the Alice bands are a contemporary take on classic headband styles. Offered in both regular and padded variations, Alice bands feature in on-trend velvet, satin, cord or wicker finishings. Colours available include ivory, black, gold, silver, blue, red and many more. Some Alice bands are even embellished with crystals. The many colour and fabrication options are available in eight different sizes, creating virtually endless styling potential.
Eco-Friendly Hair Clips
Paris Mode’s hair clips are also extremely popular, and the majority of hair clips are crafted from eco-friendly acetate. This natural, renewable material is made by extracting cellulose fibres from cotton and wood pulp, and offers an eco-friendly alternative to the traditional plastics that are often used in hair accessories. Not only is acetate better for the planet, it also produces richer colours with a uniquely glossy finish.
Paris Mode also creates timeless jewellery with a Parisian mood. Earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, brooches and more are available online in contemporary, yet timeless designs. Many feature striking acetate colours and prints and are often complemented with Swarovski crystals.
From little things, big things do really grow. Paris Mode began selling hair accessories to one stockist in Sydney, but now the label is carried in high-end fashion boutiques around Australia, as well as having showcases in each of David Jones’ 35 department stores. During its growth, Paris Mode has continued to work closely with expert craftsmen in France. These artisans combine traditional methods and technology, ensuring the highest possible standard is always achieved for each accessory Paris Mode designs.
Paris Mode has been leading the accessory industry for over thirty years. It is the combination of eco-friendly, modern hair accessories, timeless jewellery and years of industry experience that make Paris Mode the first choice for hair accessories in Australia.
