A cocktail of fascinators






Ever since Sarah Jessica Parker stepped out in her Philip Treacy towering confection at the Sex and the city premier, mini cocktail hats and fascinators have become a must have fashion accessory. The Philip Treacy creation received mixed reviews, with it's huge green rose and giant butterflies. For me however, it was love at first sight. At that moment, I knew I wanted to make cocktail hats. My inspiration comes from all my favourite things. History plays a part, with Marie Antoinette, Dickensian London and The ballet. Also, my love of gardens and beaches is a source to dip into, as is modern and youth culture. This reminds me, I must create my own towering confection on a wintry theme, when I get around to it !
