I have loved hats all my life. Some girls like shoes, some like handbags, but nothing can help alter an outfit, or give you some attitude better than a hat. I used to go from 1930s lady to NY street food salesman to veiled widow in seconds and I loved being able to have such a change in style so quick. I decided to try and put one together myself when a wedding came up and it would be able to match my dress. These photographs record the result. I loved it because it was cool on my head, it was bright and colourful, but it was also unique in its style, especially for a wedding.
I think I will try again at some point, hopefully while upcycling fabric and old hats that I find in charity shops. Watch this space!
