Red Feather Banksia Fascinator is the absolute show stopper hat. It is a single “Banksia” flower made from hundreds of hand dyed goose feathers sitting on a headband covered with red French lace and with a vintage red veil and quills. The end result is breathtaking and spectacular.
The original idea for this hat was from an Australiana exhibition. Wendy wanted to create a “Banksia” from the Australian flora. She certainly achieved a truly Australiana piece with this fascinator.
This is not a hat for the faint hearted. It is a statement piece of “Look at me”! You need to wear this amazing fascinator with confidence and poise.
This Facinator can actually come in two formats. As a multiple flower headband/mesh crown or as a single flower on a headband. This headpiece can be ordered in any colour combination.
The Vintage French lace and over generous veil gives an exotic look to this fascinator. This is not a heart for the shy kind of person.
Whilst this is a rather large piece, as with all Wendy’s pieces, it sits easily on a fine headband and is light and comfortable. In fact it is incredibly light notwithstanding its size. You will not realise you are wearing it. It is that comfortable.
This headpiece takes 4 weeks on order so make sure you allow enough time.
You could certainly wear this to the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Absolutely perfect for the Melbourne Cup itself. Or perhaps any event where you want that “Australiana look”.
Red Feather Banksia Fascinator is 100% Australian made by Wendy in her Melbourne studio.
