A Perfect Showstopper for the Races

I absolutely loved making this piece whilst working at John Boyd Hats in Knightsbridge. Mr B gave us such creative freedom not to mention the incredible materials we had on tap that he’d been collecting since the 1940s! I made this piece by hand sculpting vintage striped crinoline with added crin edge (for extra drama) and mounting it on a silk button base with a dramatic silk bow to finish. I think it has the wow factor with a touch of elegance.
