When I was little, one of my favorite things to do was play dress-up. I used to love to put on my mother’s then-enormous shoes, makeup, gloves and other accessories. My favorite pieces were always her vintage hats. From those luscious fur-trims to those delicate bird-cage veils (that I would wear while pretending I was getting married!), her hats always brought the most fun.
I would sometimes pretend I was a character in one of mom’s recorded classic films; the heroin that the hero sought, or the mysterious figure that all eyes were drawn towards. I guess I never outgrew that lovely feeling those glamorous hats gave me.
I started creating fascinators/half-hats/mini-hats. I honestly cannot tell you where this came from. I just started shopping vintage one day and decided to start making them. I glean inspiration from so many things; from my friend’s vintage…
