Another customisation. Made to match Nicolas white dress with fuchsia and orange peonies. Never made this flower before, made it up as went along! In layers of multitonal hand painted petals. Came out well so had to list in Etsy shop for others too....
The “Beau” wrist corsage customised into champagne rose gold colour way made to match Selina’s gown. And matching lapel pin to pair. Love seeing customised pieces come together. Always happy to discuss peoples requests to get my creativity working.
Photo Laura look last month at Cheltenham. Think was the only rain free, snow free day in March, but Laura had it well planned with the stunning coat + scarf I customised hat for. Is the Cheltenham hashtag still #colourmemarch ? If so Laura went with it.

About

www.dress-2-impress.com - UK Milliner, and Royal Ascot Hat Hire

Trained Graphic Designer, who moved to Ascot, Berkshire in 1999 and discovered the Fantastic World of Millinery.
Thousands come to Ascot every June for the worlds biggest Millinery Event - Royal Ascot, and I turned my 2D Graphical knowledge into 3D artforms - Hats.
My Millinery Designs are always highly creative, and with a strong use of colours, graduations, feather arrangements, and graphical shapes.

The Graphic Design industry changed in the late 90's to Computer added design. With Graphic Designers no longer making physical artwork by hand, it was a blessing in disguise, to convert to Millinery, where I can apply my knowledge of colour and shapes, spacial awareness and forms to Hats and Fascinators. Still getting my hands covered in glue, paint, feathers, materials like I have always loved to do...... and spend hours of enjoyment creating physical items, for my customers to have hours of enjoyment wearing.

I also run a Hat Hire service at the Royal Ascot Races, where people can book online in advance (www.dress-2-impress.com), collect their hat (on the opposite side of High Street) before entering the races, and return in the evening when they leave. Remember it is a requirement to have a hat or Fascinator at Royal Ascot, so don't plan on not wearing one if visiting. Both Mens Top Hat and Ladies Hats and Headpieces are available.
