Not everyone wants to wear a veil, or maybe you are after something a bit different. Then this little lovely embroidered flower headpiece is for you. Easy to wear, super cute, can also be beaded AND you can definitely wear it again afterwards to the races or a special occasion. Love, love, love this piece!
It suits so many different styles too ☺️

Sometimes the week ends with boxes of hats and headpieces instead of veils. And this weeks boxes had the most fun and amazing pieces in them. They where all completely different to each other, and tested some skills I hadn’t used in a long time! But that is one of my favourite things about being a milliner, every week is different in the studio. I can’t wait for you to see them !
Dior is pleased to reveal an exceptional new project: Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior's Creative Director for women's wear, in collaboration with star dancer and ballet director Eleonora Abbagnato, has designed the costumes for 'Nuit Blanche', one of three ballets staged in homage to the composer and musician Philip Glass, to be presented at the Opera in Rome from March 29th to April 2nd. Glimpse the savoir-faire behind the project and learn more about this fresh bond linking dance and the Spring-Summer 2019 collection on.dior.com/operarome.

I’ve been working on these tiny, silk flower centres this week. And finally third time lucky, they have turned out beautifully! Now it’s time for the larger, outside layer to be cut and shaped.
🤞🏻 Wish me luck.... hopefully I have the patience too 😂

And this is just the beginning 💫
It’s how they all start, on the head block. Cut, pinned and sewn together, waiting for some hand tooled silk flowers to be stitched on. These little face veils are some of my absolute favs! Maybe because I wore one to my own wedding. But mostly I think because they look amazing on and it’s such a nice way to frame your face! Wait till you see this beauty in action.... With her amazing headpiece to accompany it.
She’s almost finished! After a good clean, some reshaping and a little bit of magic, she will be finished and ready to be worn again after three decades in hiding! It is such a pleasure to see pieces like this given a new lease on life and getting their time to shine again. The only sad bit is waiting so long to see it in action 😍
