Hats make a statement…

I remember going to millinery shops with my mother when I was a child.  I loved seeing the transformation as she placed different styles upon her head.  A hat sets a mood – flirty wide brims, feathers, flowers, ribbons and bows.  The right hat gives a woman (and a man) an extra dash of panache.

As the models donned the hats, they seemed to lose themselves into a new roll.  Becoming what the hat portrayed.  Thanks to the creative geniuses, that took paper, netting, twigs etc to a new level.  I can’t wait to continue this project, even though Helen is back in Australia now.  I have the hats but it won’t be as much fun without her.

I played around a little more in photoshop with Anisa’s images.  Changed the bright painted white lips to silver.  It’s better.

Marielle and Caitie wore swirled and twisted black netting, created by Helen, and I turned on the fog machine for a smokey effect.

Finally, we got around to my other designer who waited patiently between wardrobe and model changes.  Fatima worked wonders with brown, sliced paper that she hand painted, folded, twisted and molded into shapes.  The result was regal.  The gold paint added the finishing touch.

Marielle wanted to vamp it up a little and changed gowns for a vintage Hollywood glam look.  Ara changed up her make-up, Payton gave her soft curls and Helen brought out her little fox.
