VERONA

£160 £260
VERONA is a stunning deep ruby red couture millinery fascinator with a pleated translucent sweeping false brim which is very flattering to the face. This piece is BOLD and wildly feminine all at once. It weighs next to nothing and stays in place with millinery elastic, behind the head, and under the hair. Super easy to wear. I have added a striking “crin” rose, and tufts of shiny red matching tulle for depth. Verona would be perfect with a simple black dress with red accents, or to mirror an ensemble with shimmery pleats. Use your imagination, and let your own sense of style shine through. Even though this is light as air and comfortable as anything, this is truly a statement piece, and would be terrific at the Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, an upscale luncheon or anywhere you want to be SEEN! ~~ As with all my work, VERONA is a one off, individually numbered piece of couture wearable art~~

  • I live and work in upstate New York, near the beautiful Saratoga Race Course, which was, at least in part, the inspiration for me to explore millinery. I have been making and selling my work locally and in upscale boutiques across the US for some time, participating in an assortment of "hatty" events along the way. I have met and worked with many wonderful new friends, thanks to millinery. My work has been featured and can be seen gracing the runway, paired with the beautiful fashions of amazingly talented designers, at galas and charity events, in the winner"s circle and in wearable art shows. My hats and fascinators have taken me across America and back, and most recently, I am honored to be exhibiting at the 2020 Great Exhibition of London hat week!   

     I share a portion of my proceeds with animal welfare organizations with every piece I sell.

     ******* With a visual artist Mom, and musician Dad, I've been around creativity all my life. I come from a long line of creative people: art, music and even inventing are all in my genes. ..... My university study focus was photo illustration and design, and I continue to learn new things every single day. I began working with millinery around 2012, and for me the creative process is ever-evolving, one design builds on the last... one idea leads to another and I find that I am forever on to something new! I love blocking, sculpting and stitching a flat piece of raw material into an entirely new entity: a three dimensional work of wearable art! I hope the joy and excitement of my process shines through for you in every piece of my finished work.
