Red Burgundy Silk TopHat is another example of Wendy’s skill in making a Top Hat for a lady. So many top hats sold are so masculine but here we have a true example of the feminine look in a Top Hat.
Top Hats for Ladies are definitely back this year. It is such a great look and so stylish.
There are so many on display at Ascot and the UK Spring races each year.
In this case Wendy has made a short evenly curved crown Top Hat all wrapped in a beautiful red burgundy silk. Three red burgundy silk flowers sit on one side of the top hat. The final, and certainly important, finish is a navy blue veil that wraps all around the hat and is tied in a bow at the back. The veil drops down just below the brim to cover the eye line.
There is an art to designing and making a feminine top hat, its not just about the colour. There is a subtle shift in line and curve that helps create that mark of femininity. With a custom made brim shape this top hat has reflections of the Victorian Ladies Top Hat of the 1880s. This is a simply gorgeous Top Hat and such a statement in red burgundy. This red is such a beautiful colour. The navy veiling adds that air of mystery and elegance. The Red burgundy flowers on the side also add an extra layer of decoration.
Lined with silk, this is a millinery piece of class and elegance.
Red Burgundy Silk TopHat is 100% hand made in Australia by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
