When Lisa Richardt of the two-year old, Seattle based brand, Veronica & Harold went to see 50 Shades of Gray, she almost couldn't believe her eyes. She said that what she saw "was the most surreal experience seeing it. It was so, so exciting.”
The reason she felt this way? Dakota Johnson wore the same necklace all the way through the movie - did you notice what it looked like? It was a delicate looking wire horseshoe shaped necklace that was hand crafted by Lisa herself. “It’s the only necklace she wears in the film,” she says.
She hadn't known until that moment that the special order that had come to her through West Hollywood boutique Show Pony, where her collection is sold, was for Dakota Johnson. All she knew was that, about a year ago, “a costume designer contacted me and said an actress in a film had picked the piece out, and wanted to get multiples of it.” No other information was provided to her about the order or the purchase.
So, imagine her surprise when she sees it in a movie! Of course, since the movie debuted, orders for the necklace have been flying in for the necklace, which makes Lisa Richardt a very happy, busy, and lucky woman!
