Having posted all of the images, design by design for my Spring / Summer 2012 shoot I’m now doing the same for my Autumn / Winter 2012 shoot too. Here I’ll be looking at each design and giving you a little information about it.
First up is one of my favourites, it’s the guinea fowl feathered fascinator.
This is a percher fascinator and is covered in literally hundreds of delicate guinea fowl feathers. The feathers all flow in the same direction going round and round the hat; making this hat takes a lot of time and patience!
The middle of the hat has a large grey velvet button, and protruding from that is a spray of burnt ostrich feathers. I love the simplicity of this design with the round shape of the base and the large spike of ostrich pointing up out of it.
This hat is still for sale.
As always, thanks to the team; we had feathery fun on this day!
