On Sunday the Northumberland Registrar team have put together their non stop shop for everything you could possible need for your wedding, at their latest fair, to be held at Morpeth Town Hall 11 - 3pm.
I am delighted to have been selected for this popular event fair and will be launching my new Spring range there.
Please look at the Northumberland Registrars website for more information http://www.northumberland.gov.uk/
Very excited to have posted my entry to the 10th International Hat Art 2014 early this week. This is a French competition - the theme of which is "Archi'felt".
The competition is to be judged by a panel of judges headed up by Stephen Jones. Many of the hats will be exhibited at the Atelier-Musee du Chapeau, in Chazelles-sur-Lyon from May 17th to October 5th 2014 - so I do hope my entry gets there on time!
Inspiration Santiago Calatrava
Taking inspiration directly from the architecture aspect of the brief, I researched modern architects and was drawn to the work of the Spanish sculptor and architect Santiago Calatrava, whose work dominates many of the modern buildings and particularly the airports, of Europe. The piece itself is inspired by his control tower at Bilbao and features two charcoal grey blocked fur felts, along with a cut away section - revealing the interior of the cone like crown - bound in wired saffron yellow petersham with highlights of Guterman beads.
Fingers crossed for my entry that hopefully the Royal Mail will deliver my hat before the deadline, but currently despite having sent it on their track & trace service, they appear to have lost it on the way to Heathrow! Oh dear what a dreadful disappointment if it misses the deadline!
I am really excited about the next Elite Wedding Event at Horton Grange on Saturday, 1 - 4pm.
I have been selected to show a selection of my latest bridal couture millinery, joining Dawn Marie's other carefully selected suppliers, I know it will be a wonderful afternoon for brides' planning their weddings and looking for a beautiful venue.
Please do join us on Saturday afternoon & visit my couture millinery stand!
