Taking it’s cue from Frida Kahlo, this headpiece celebrates the beauty of vibrant womanhood, with fiery colours and a joyful spirit.
A base of goose feathers and shimmering petrol black rooster feathers are complimented by a flurry of deep fuschia, and two bright red roses.
The base of the crown is an embroidered satin, with eye-popping flashes of gold and azul. Hand-sewn blue bobble trim adds sumptuous texture.
Two dynamic red roses are attached to either side of the headdress. Handmade from rich, red felt, delicate red lace, and mottled red tweed, these frame your face perfectly; each one sitting comfortably in place just above your ears. Behind each rose is another flurry of long rooster feathers, bright blue at the base, fading to iridescent shimmering black at the ends.
Below each rose hangs a stream of carefully selected, flowing colourful ribbons to add movement and streams of black chain to subtly shimmer in the light.
The headdress fastens at the back with ribbon ties.
Each headpiece is carefully handmade to order in my studio in Brighton. Please allow up to two weeks for production. If you need your items sooner, drop me a line using the contact link and we can arrange a timescale.
