The inspiration and theme of this hat came about from the finding of the bleached and dyed ivory toned peacock feather spray. The next components were the floral accents in form of magnolias and a lavender rose.

With a colour palette now well on its way, I chose a black hat form as the base and tied everything together with a cream and black striped ribbon hatband with a lavender ribbon overlay. The lavender ribbon was also used as a bow at the back of the hat. Black tulle adds further drama and depth to this piece.
A skeleton hand crawling out of the lavender rose and the skull in the center of one of the magnolia’s adds just the right creepy touch to this darkly romantic and gothic hat. Pearls and Swarovski crystals contribute a splash of sparkle, luxury and added femininity to the design.
This hat has a black elastic strap attached, which can be worn under the back of the head or under the wearer’s chin for a secure and comfortable fit.
