Cressida

Cressida

This hat was developed from three designs that I had in my studio, that the customer wanted combined together in the one hat!  It is a stunning but simple upturned saucer block in 'tonic' sinamay, trimmed under the brim with a fantastic over-sized handmade silk rose which has leaves and a supporting bow all highlighted with pearl details.

But the clever thing about this design, is that the customer attended three different weddings through the season,  and although she  wore the same nude coloured shoes to each of the events, she wore three different coloured dresses.  Three large silk roses were handmade to combine the colours of her dress with the colour of her shoes and bag, which could simply be changed over to completely alter the look of her new hat!  She also ordered three pairs of matching shoe bows to accent the different colours of her outfits from top-to-toe.  And, because the flowers are all on magnets, the duet design comes with a headband so that the flowers can be worn alone as a fascinator by themselves, or as a large corsage on the dresses that the match…

The wearing possibilities of this set of accessories are endless!  If you would like to discuss your upcoming 'Marvellous Millinery Moments' please ring me on 07968 337446 to book your appointment as this design can be made in many different colours to bring your outfit together. 

This unique design can be made for you in a wide range of different colour combinations with different trimming  and decoration options.

COMMISSION EXAMPLE This piece uses customer’s own fabric to bind the brim of this elegant hat, and features a multi-layered bow with feathers and pearl details instead of a large rose.  To finish off the outfit, a pair of shoe bows were made to match.
