Welcome to the world according to Alana... a world full of bright and happy fashion accessories!
Hello, my name is Alana. “According to Alana” is run by me from my sewing and craft studio in Sydney, Australia. All items are designed and handmade by me with lots of thought and love.
Colour and creating has filled my world since I was a child. My mother encouraged me to paint and I would spend all my time drawing, colouring and painting. My father taught me how to make things, he could make, build and fix just about anything. I developed my appreciation for vintage items from him as well; he loved 'old' things. In a world of fast fashion and clothes that are not made to last I love finding vintage pieces to add to my collection, and sometimes use those items such as fabric and buttons to create something new.
I adore co-ordinating my clothes with matching accessories; however, I had difficulty finding headbands to match in cute prints and that were made well so I decided to make them myself using new and vintage fabrics. I knew that I could not be the only one who was looking for cute #matchymatchy accessories to co-ordinate with outfits, so I began to design and create a line of individual friendly fashion accessories. Why blend in when you were born to stand out?
Through the encouragement of my creative friends, I began making matching accessories with wire headbands becoming my main focus.
I love designing something special and unique for each of my customers, items that will be cherished forever. I use careful construction and quality fabrics, this makes me happy knowing that my products will last.
As an individual I proudly support the handmade community, by purchasing goods, materials and gifts which are from other artisans.

I love colour and co-ordination so I cannot think of anything more fun than creating colourful headbands and accessories to match every outfit.
