Fascinated by Fascinators

I first learned about millinery through a costume crafts class I took when I was studying for my masters in costume design at Ohio University. The colleague who taught the section had worked for several years in the field at a number of the theatrical millinery shops in NY and was an amazing and inspiring resource for an art I knew very little about up to that point. After studying with her for that brief section I sought out new ways to expand my knowledge by experimenting with a variety of materials, picking up different techniques and later, when I lived in NY, even working with one of the same shops she had. From just that one class my curiosity has forever been piqued.

Through the work I was producing for shows, I came to the idea that some of these theatrical techniques that often produce stunning little works of art could extend beyond the stage to create clever and unique bridal wear. My first design was a custom veil to perfectly compliment the wedding dress of a close relative who was seeking something a little different than what she was finding in the stores and from there my passion has just grown. I've gone on to work with other brides who have asked for everything from, "I don't want any doubt that I'm wearing feathers" to "Something small and sparkly that I can take the veil off and wear for the reception too." Meeting any request has its challenges and I love puzzling them out. I truly thrive on the collaborative process and am always delighted by the beautifully distinctive results of each. No two veils or fascinators I've made have ever been exactly alike giving each person the distinction of owning something that is absolutely one-of-a-kind and I feel that is just priceless.
