Mauve Top Hat Flowers was created on a unique hand made block by Wendy. The crown and the brim have both been custom made to create a mid-height top hat with a unique crown shape. This hat is reminiscent of the 1890’s classic Victorian Era Riding hat, worn by ladies as the rode their horses along the leafy parks of London.
Mid Height Crown- a mid height top hat with a shaped crown and curved brim, in mauve sinamay with floral detail.
Wendy calls this unique shape that she has created “Avi “.
This is a standard 57-58cm (medium) size Crown. “Avi” can be made to any size head.
The Mauve colour and trim are also fun with a touch of tradition to the modern.
The brim is upturned with an elegant sweep. The top of the crown has a tilted angle that creates almost a Vintage Victorian Riding hat look, created in a multicolour fabric sinamay in shades of mauve. A lively splash of flowers in pure silk cover the side, in tones of whites, mauves and pinks.
This is the shorter crown version of “Rennes” (another Top Hat shape unique to Wendy). This top hat shape is also available to order in silk or felts.
This particular example of such an eye-catching hat is made in a sinamay of multi-shades of mauve.
So much fun. So unique. So “Fashions on the Field”.
Stand out from the crowd and have some fun with the compliments you will receive wearing this absolutely couture millinery hat.
