NEW YORK, N.Y., June 27, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Designer Victoria McCooey announced today the launch of her signature line of accessories. Her designs feature wearable and home furnishing accessories embellished with the classic New Orleans symbol, the fleur-de-lis. The collection is opening with a line of fleur-de-lis embellished pashmina scarves, with beach sarongs and umbrellas to follow. McCooey's designs are available for purchase online through her website at

The Victoria McCooey pashmina is elaborately enhanced with hand-sewn metal charm designs in a silver-colored fleur-de-lis or bronze-colored crest. The scarf, 100 percent pashmina or pashmina/silk blend, measures 71 inches x 27 1/2 inches, and is delicately patterned in a tonal jacquard, each piece unique with its own inherent attributes. The charms are carefully hand-sewn onto one long edge of the scarf to create a captivating necklace effect when worn. The scarf can be styled any number of ways: tied in front, draped over the shoulders, looped around the neck, or wrapped over the head a la Grace Kelly.

Victoria McCooey designs radiate casual and timeless elegance. Her accessories are adored by women of all generations for their femininity and sophistication.

"For me, it all started with my passion for the fleur-de-lis, an icon of New Orleans, my hometown," says McCooey. "The symbol signifies both grace and power - I want fleur-de-lis in my home, on my jewelry, on my stationery - anywhere I can imagine. Starting an accessories line showcasing them was a natural progression."

McCooey has spent many years as a fashion advertising executive and has seen a myriad of trends come and go. It was this exposure that led to her vision of understated yet dynamic design. She now lives on Long Island, New York (in a home filled with fleur-de-lis) with her husband, Patrick, her three sons, his two daughters and their dog, Harry.
