Bronze Eucalyptus Leaf Fascinator is a stunning and distinctive headpiece crown made with pure vintage silk that has been hand coloured and dyed. Soft green golds and bronzes shimmer as the leaves move. The leaves flutter slightly in the breeze, as they would in nature. Small bronze gold balls create the gum nuts nestled within the leaves.
This fascinator is a homage to the elegance of the Australian flora and the well known icon of Australia- the Eucalyptus tree.Wendy calls this hat “Kirra” which is a name used in some Aboriginal Nations meaning “leaf” or “dancing leaves”. Wendy has certainly encapsulated the concept of dancing leaves with this elegant piece.
Each leaf on this fascinator has been created by Wendy using two types of silk- a dupion and a lace silk, bonded together with wire centres. It is hard to tell, even up close, that the leaves are not real.
Each leaf can be moved and shaped as in a tree branch of leaves moving in the breeze.
The fascinator all sits on a crown wrapped in bronze coloured silk to match the eucalypt leaves.
The headpiece is fully reversible so you can create two slightly different looks from one headpiece.
A comfortable headband is fitted within the crown. Additional headbands can be added for a smaller head fit. Elastic can also be added for further security.
This is a truly unique Australiana hat. It is a one only piece and will never be replicated by Wendy.
“Kirra” could be worn as a statement piece in spring or winter racing events. It could also be used within a theatre setting. Whenever you are after a fascinator that truly represents the Australian flora “Kirra” would be perfect.
Bronze Eucalyptus Leaf Fascinator is 100% made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
