It's been ever so long!
My Nan is a fabulous hat maker, selling her "Trishe Darling" hats and headpieces in a couple of shops and she also does hat making workshops and such like! So I suspect she in some way sparked and encouraged my interest in hats (as well as my love of vintage influencing my hat obsession)! She has taught me a couple of her clever techniques, but I really want her to teach me more....it's just a matter of being able to get some time to go back and visit her properly! Oh damn you, work!
This is a me sporting a "Trishe Darling" creation!
Paloma Faith also owns one of my facsinators!
In my second year at uni, I produced headpieces for Georgia Nash, who is a fabulous womenswear designer. She was completing her graduate collection based on "The Nutcracker" and I was asked to help with the headpieces. These are some of the photos of said pieces...
Pearl encrusted fascinator with Nutcracker.
Beaded bow facinator with trickling bead-work on veil.
Purse and bow headpiece with bead-work.
Now I need to get back into my millinery, after all the hectic-ness of finishing uni and going out into the real world of work!
Pip pip! xx
