Black Rose Lace and Feathers Cocktail Hat

This delightful perching hat in classic black is a creative combination of different visual textural layers, giving this monochrome colour palette real depth and intrigue. The stunning fine silk rose is supported by a spray of tiny rosebuds and leaves, which are framed beautifully by a dramatic feather mount that features a dense fan of leaf-shaped clipped feathers and a wonderful spray of many bobbing 'diamond' shaped coq feathers - each about 6" or 7" long giving height and movement to the hat without adding any weight. The comfortable buntal base measures about 6" across and has been fitted with a comb and elastic to make it easy to wear. It has been covered with a layer of fine embroidered lace, which is in the pattern of climbing stems and sprays of flowers, all scattered with a dusting of Jet Black Swarovski crystals to give the piece a delicate shimmer which really catches the eye. This hat would be perfect for a significant guest at a smart wedding in any season, or perhaps a trip to the races on Ladies Day - maybe Royal Ascot or Glorious Goodwood. It is set to become a 'wardrobe staple' and I expect it is destined to be worn time and time again.

  • Handmade Unique Hats and Headpieces - ideal for Mother of the Bride or Mother of the Groom.

    I have been making bespoke occasion wear hats for discerning customers since 2011 in my Rose Garden Studio at my home in Winchester, UK. My hats have been worn to many elegant weddings all around the world, graced the covers of glossy magazines and I have designed for the British Royal Family.

    My exclusive Ready-to-Wear collection of unique hats range from colourful perching pillbox hats, beautifully detailed cocktail hats and dramatically chic fascinators. Trims include delicate silk roses, hand-curled feathers and genuine Swarovski crystals.

    I keep each design lightweight and elegant so that it maintains a presence in the photographs on the special day, but is also very comfortable and easy to wear.  Most of my designs have details at the back for your audience behind you to enjoy - I ensure that my designs work well from every angle.

    Customers have often said to me after the event "I'd forgotten I had one of your beautiful hats on, until I caught sight of myself in a mirror!"
