I am really pleased to show you a selection of headpieces, all made using couture techniques, and which are highlight pieces from my very recent millinery collections. These vary from beautiful winter felts, to inexpensive, but highly decorative fascinators! I believe headpieces should be great to look at, easy to wear, but most importantly flattering!
Just to get you in the mood, here is a riot of colour, textures and techniques, and then a pretty little fascinator - just right to wear to a friend's wedding or a day at the races.
A pretty feminine piece of ivory crin roses set on a bed of peacock hurl, with an easy to wear comfortable headband. It is large enough for Ascot and smart enough for a special wedding.
A 50's inspired vintage Dior style headpiece in dark navy blue crin set on a head band.
A dramatic wired and pleated crin, a one off couture piece headpiece, features sparkling hand beading, and is worn with a comfortable wire headband.
And now two trilby styles, wear them for autumn or for winter racing. A dramatic aubergine fur felt trilby with matching hatband.
And finally, here's a twist on accessorising a vintage mid size trilby, making it truly individual, a very local theme but you can choose your own colourway of course and trim!
Shown in spectrum blue fur felt, with a feather cockade trimmed with an silk covered button sporting the Alnwick Rugby Football Club lion rampant emblem, of Northumberland.
Ready-to-wear collections are available with fun and easy to wear fascinators starting from £75 - please enquire if you are interested in hiring as selected items are available on this basis, there are more details on the Ready to Wear Millinery page.
