add a touch of glamour
Fascinators add a touch of glamour to an outfit – just look at the fashionistas at the racetrack during Melbourne Cup week! Mothers, bridesmaids and guests – it's easy to incorporate a fascinator with most outfits. Some can be purchased ready made, or you could consider having one designed especially for you!
Looking at what's coming out of Europe, I spotted these gems from UK designer, Kate Fearnley, designed to complement her Spring/ Summer 2013 Riviera Cocktail collection. Inspired by retro vacations, and focusing heavily on the styles and shapes of the Hollywood icons of the 1950's, the collection brings into mind the post-war French Riviera.
Shades of red, aqua, strawberry, pink and purple are interspersed with black and white and vibrant splashes of yellow. The collection also includes cherry printed stretch cottons, florals, spots and paintsplash prints.
The fascinators are placed on to comfortable bands, designed with practicality and comfort in mind. These are available exclusively from www.katefearnleyboutique.co.uk at £45, or talk to a local specialist such as Monika Neuhauser,
