Here's a peek at a headpiece which was a special order for a shop, rushed through and popped in post today.
This is an adaptation on a style I designed last year. The customer wanted 3 the same, made smaller than the previous style.
They are made with silk, cotton, silk chiffon, lace and velvet ribbon with some beading detail.The design was inspired by Victorian dresses and embroideries I saw in the V&A

Like this one from 1885

and this one from 1890.
It is the sense of opulence and abundance I was trying to capture. I like the idea of wearing something so bursting with detail as an accessory with a really simple dress.
I am thinking I will make some more for Florica
