  • Handmade

CLARENT is a soft chocolate brown fascinator style hat with gold metallic and black veil. So soft and sweet, it's a very pretty and flattering “hatinator,” adorned with a little Swarovski crystal centered flower made of sinamay and tulle atop a tidy organdy ribbon bow. Appropriate for any 'hats-a-must' event, such as Kentucky Derby, Pegasus World Cup, Dubai World Cup, the Arc, the Saratoga social season and winner’s circle, for church, or for the fashionable wedding guest!

For Clarent, I have rolled a natural sinamy straw material, to soften the shape, and added a large swath of delicate veiling to create a unique, yet approachable and easy going design. The lone crystal in the flower is meant to gently catch the light, without screaming "look at me!" The result is a light and airy elegant look. Almost Audrey Hepburn vintage style.

At under 2 ounces, this is a wonderfully comfortable headpiece, situated on a very thin hand wrapped headband that will not mess your hairstyle and will not give you a headache, even after a very long event. You may even forget you have it on, except for all the compliments on your impeccable sense of style!

This is a one-of-a-kind all hand blocked and stitched fascinator, which is individually numbered, so you are assured you are purchasing an original work of wearable art.

  TIPS ON WEARING FASCINATORS, HATINATORS, COCKTAIL HATS, and HATS....

One question people have, especially in the US, where hats and fascinators are seen more for special occasions, is “How do I keep the thing on my head?”

There are some tools and secrets used in milllinery and by hairdressers that I am happy to share with you. Also, if you happen to be visiting your hairdresser prior to your hat event (day at the races, wedding, etc....) bring your headpiece along! He or she can show you how to wear it, and how it will work with your hairstyle to not only look best, but also to stay comfortably in place all day.


Traditionally fascinators are worn on the right side of the head: usually designed to sit cocked at an attractive angle and forward partially across the brow, but there is no steadfast rule about this. Although the majority of fascinators are meant to be worn in the traditional way, some styles can be worn to the left, or even the center. Some are even made specifically to look great at any angle or placement, giving the wearer plenty of flexibility to choose. The best plan is to try the piece on and decide which is the most flattering and comfortable look for you. Try adding some interest by positioning your fascinator to frame your face, then tilt dramatically across the hair line. Also, as a reminder ~ wind and rain do not mix well with delicate headwear so please stay under cover during inclement weather while wearing your special hat.


All that being said, there are some differences in headpiece construction that may dictate how each piece can be worn:

Many of the headpieces that I make are situated on a HEADBAND. A fascinator or hatinator on a headband is easy to wear and super easy to place. Even so, I often recommend the use of bobby pins for additional security, especially with some my the larger designs. You can match the pins to the hat or your hair color, and it can be helpful to spritz each bobby pin with hairspray prior to sliding into the hair. Cross the pins in an X shape for extra support, and place with the wavy side down to hold the hair in place. If your hair isn’t super thick you may want to give it a tiny back-comb or tease. I often include coordinated bobby pins with my larger fascinators. The headbands I use are very thin so they do not pinch or cause headaches. I also add tiny soft teeth and tips to help them stay put.

I sometimes prefer to use MILLINERY ELASTIC to secure some of the smaller designs, as this allows for more flexibility of placement. Millinery elastic can be virtually invisible for a very clean (“how does that stay up there?”) appearance. There is no real right or wrong in positioning, so try out a few different angles and go with the look you prefer..... the most flattering and comfortable look for you. The elastic always goes behind your ears, around head and discreetly under the hair. If your fascinator is secured with millinery elastic it is possible the elastic won’t be strong enough to be used alone, especially for a long day or evening of wear. Once again a couple of bobby pins will provide plenty of additional stability.

Sometimes I will add a small COMB or CLIP to a fascinator as a secondary means of attachment for a piece on a headband or with millinery elastic. Fascinators that fasten with a comb should be attached so the comb’s teeth point towards the face. And as always, it’s fine to add a couple of bobby pins if you like.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Beautiful! A little bit big for my face but works perfect with a head band with buttons for a mask.
