Model Derri Mondal.
'Elizabeth', is a silk headpiece, newly designed for spring / summer 2013.
Modern and classic at the same time, blue silk catches the light, while a large floral shape lifts the piece to another level.
The inspiration for this headpiece came from Deborah's love of the great Hollywood films (and film stars) of the 1930s and 40s, and from the British-woven figured silk brocatelle itself.
The silk has a textured pattern of dark greeny-gold leaves, with a splash of colour injected here and there by little red and yellow flowers. That colour is drawn out in the decoration, by wrapping three pure silk dupions, in red, navy, and yellow, around a special malleable plastic 'wire', to create a modern stylised flower shape that can be reshaped to the wearer's wishes (you could flatten it down to make it broader, squash it in to make it taller, make the petals more pointy, etc).
Cotton, wool, 100% silk brocatelle, 100% silk dupion, millinery wire, plastic 'wire', petersham ribbon.

The headpiece can be made with a headband, an elastic fitting, a comb, or a clip. If you wish to purchase, we will contact you after receipt of your order to discuss your preferences.
Please also bear in mind that this head piece is hand made, so small variations are normal, and should be expected.
