    "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.

    ------

    This truly original design by Violet Peacock is a play on the traditional idea of punk mohawks, given an unexpected and colorful millinery twist. A solid buckram/wire base, steamed and blocked to sit comfortably on the head was then covered in layers of purple sinamay straw. Further layers of sinamay were rolled to form 5 individual spikes and hand-sewn to the base, with each spike being topped off by a metallic filagree cone. The sinamay in this piece has purposefully been allowed to slightly "fray" to add to the overall punk design.

    The "Mohawk" is designed with an attached headband, plus additional small elastic loops to allow you to secure it further with bobby pins.

    This unique and artistic creation seems to transform its wearers into *Punk Mohawk-Wearing Dinosaurs*, complete with *RAWR* noises, and has even spawned its own *RAWR* pin-badge so be warned! Wearing this piece is guaranteed to make you the center of attention, whether it be at a Costumed event, Theatrical performance, or just a good old fashioned Rockabilly Party!
    For added fun/danger, the spikes double as an effective weapon, should the need arise ;).

    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 listing is for a CUSTOM MADE version of this design, and so can be made in a number of different colors making it the perfect accompaniment for that special theatrical Steampunk, Burlesque or Costumed event.

    Each of these pieces will be unique, differing slightly from the photos shown in this listing & will take a number of days/weeks to construct; Be sure to order with plenty of time.

    Please get in touch if you would like a Custom Made version of this piece and I will happily set up a listing for you. Prices vary for custom pieces.

    --------------------

    Due to the number of HALLOWEEN 2014 clients Violet Peacock has, current turnaround time for custom versions of this item is at least 3-4 weeks, meaning this item will NOT be ready in time to ship for Halloween. Apologies.
