Black White Spiral Fascinator is an amazing headpiece that was handwoven to a specific client order. It was created from straw braid ribbon and was completely handwoven by Wendy. The circular shape can be made into brims or, as in this example, an upright sitting fascinator style headpiece.
The fascinator in this case is a spiral in handwoven black and white straw braid all sitting on a button pillbox hat base. Leaves of black and white, both made from Crinoline, are the final flourish.Wendy called this style of hat ‘Twister”. It really does resemble a twisting curve of black and white and the clever shaping Wendy has created takes the eye upwards as in a real Tornado Twister. This of course creates the allusion of height which is so desirable in hat design.
This creation was made to match a specific dress a client was wearing to the Derby Day races during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. The end result was perfect. Needless to say the client received many compliments.
This style of fascinator is so light and sits on the head so comfortably and securely. A comb and elastic provide perfect security.
Black White Spiral Fascinator was 100% made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
As with all Wendy’s hats and fascinators this is a unique piece that will not be replicated.
If you love this style of hat (in particular the woven braid) but would like it in a different colour range or perhaps different embellishment please contact Wendy directly on email@example.com or call her on +61416310028 to discuss customising your own unique piece to match whatever occasion or outfit you have in mind. The straw braid Wendy uses can easily be dyed to any colour. In addition Wendy can use swiss braid or crinoline. There are so many possibilities of variations for this style.
