This fascinator was designed for a client who was attending a wedding in Wales and wanted something spectacular and over the top for her nephew’s wedding. This particular lady LOVES hats and was in no way, shape or form going to attend the wedding of the year with any old piece of millinery on her head. She wanted to make an entrance and so together we created this fanciful creation.
The teal blue flower was used to pick up the teal from the floral pattern in her dress and its jewelled center together with the peackcock feathers added glamour and sparkle. The wired black organza ribbon loops and tails added balance and further drama to the other side of the fascinator. She was thrilled and momentarily at a loss for words when she saw it. She tried it on and her face lit up as she gazed at her reflection in the mirror.
This is the first of my designs to travel that far away and she was my first client to share my love of drama and “just go for it” mentality when it comes to expressing one’s self. I hope and look forward to working with her again on something equally fabulous. And, if I am lucky, more clients with her sense of fun and style will come my way!
