    "Houston Accessories Designer of the Year 2012" Debuts Fall/Winter Collection “Vaudeville"

    Award-Winning Fashion Designer Violet Peacock debuts her 2012 Fall/Winter Millinery collection titled “Vaudeville”. A stylish and powerful collection inspired by a Punk perspective on Ballet and Burlesque; elegantly incorporating studs and spikes with bright colors and interesting shapes.


    MADE TO ORDER - Takes between 14-21 days to construct before shipping.

    This artistic "One of a Kind" headpiece was designed by fusing the idea of a ballerina's tutu with that of a deconstructed "punk" top hat. Panels of buckram, wired and steamed into shape were then covered in white fabric (printed with silver crowns) before being grommeted. Spaces between each panel were laced with pale pink ribbon, mimicking the lacing of a ballet, or "pointe" shoe with ribbon wrapped wire supporting top and bottom. The unique brim of this unconventional top hat was formed from layers of pale pink tulle, constructed to form a miniature tutu.

    This oversized headpiece measures about 15" at its widest point, and is about 8" tall and is large enough to be worn as a regular hat, and can be further secured with elastic loops, if required.

    This spectacular fascinator would be fantastic for that special Steampunk, Burlesque or Costumed event, as well as a Cocktail Party, Prom, Wedding or trip to the Races. These pieces of art are designed to be worn and admired!

    All Violet Peacock pieces are constructed using traditional millinery techniques and materials, in order to create a piece that is strong, durable and will last forever! Quality materials and an eye to detail show through.

    This piece is MADE TO ORDER
