The fascinator is a headpiece that requires a clip or headband. They are often worn during special occasions such as weddings and as cocktail hats. Fascinators are traditionally worn on top of coiffed hairstyles of the 1960s. They have become recently popular at racehorse events and recently gained popularity during the royal wedding. This fascinator was created for a cocktail hour as it is attached with a clip. The folds of this piece creates a dramatic and elegant appeal, as the fascinator is worn to the side of the head. The fascinator is embellished with feathers that are placed in the folds of the fascinator for a more sophisticated feel.
Accessories Design: Cloche by Veronica Szeto
The inspiration behind these hats was the 1940s Era. These hats were modeled for a day out for an elegant occasion. The cloche is a made out of felt fabric and is often worn close to the wearers head. The cloche became a popular trend amongst women in the early 1920’s and has inspired many designers and countless trends in the near future. This particular cloche is a play on the traditional 1920’s version as the structured of the hat covers part of the wearer’s face, creating a sophisticated look. The cloche is carefully hand stitched together to keep the folds together while it is decorated with a netting.
