Tick Tock……

Morning!

Six weeks and counting!

Having now got over the Royal Wedding rush and while still in the midst of the Bridal rush….I need to give a timely reminder to all you ladies out there that Royal Ascot is only a few short, sweet weeks away.

(I also have to remind myself to choose a dress and get on with my own hat! Some how I always wait to the last minute…mmmmm…….)

Talking of dresses…I have just been making some rather lovely headdresses to be worn with some really gorgeous Philip Armstong dresses…….dressmakers to all fabulous women….I rather like the nudes below…..

There are some totally fab frocks out there not to mention the shoes……so come on…get a wriggle on and don’t be the disappointed lady in the disappointing chapeau!

Just in case you need reminding…….Ladies Day June 16th!

Wedding Hats

The time is fast approaching ladies when we will start the trawl of the shops for that perfect hat to wear with the perfect dress and perfect shoes…that you hope will stay comfortable all day!! My advice is, don’t leave it until the last minute…if you can help it…..I know stuff happens, like weather…..colours clashing……some one has bought the same thing! Be prepared….the shops will be getting all their spring summer stock in any time now and before all the goodies have been snapped up you need to be in there ready to pounce!!

I have already heard from many Mother of the Brides…MOTB…..who have decided to work from the hat down! This works well if you are having something custom made that can be in any chosen colour. I work each season with a palette of at least 50 sinamay colours, flowers, feathers, veiling that come in maybe 25 different colours….not to mention the dyed to order pieces and a whole colour spectrum of crystals .There is no need to panic….your colour is out there, some where just find the right milliner to create that perfect headdress for you!

Pictured below are images of one of my most favourite designs, The Ava….just to give you an idea of the many ways different colour schemes can work on the same hat, these are just some of the ones I have made in the last year!! I am always happy to send colour swatches and give ideas for colour schemes….just ask!! A great way to get ideas for fascinators is to send me an image of your outfit and I will then, by return send you images of the kind of headdress I think would work to create the best effect…only ever ideas…I am more than happy to make what ever you would like!!
