It’s that time of year again, The Dubai World Cup, is happening this weekend and I was lucky enough to be judging the fashion on the field this time last year. In Perth, Ascot is hosting it’s special race day, Bubbles and Heels, tomorrow.
In the spirit of all things horses and hats, I thought I would create a high fashion headpiece that looks a bit more fashion-forward than your run-of-the mill feather and bird cage veil which seems to be everywhere at the moment.
This is inspired by the latest on Marni’s Spring runway:
For this project, you will need:
A cheap visor, needle, black thread, chunky beads in green, clear plastic beads cut like gem and chunky black beads.
It helps to begin by laying all the beads out in a shallow dish, this way you can see the different types and get a nice even spread in your pattern.
With the needle and thread, begin threading the beads onto the visor in a mix of colours and textures. I think it helps to work from the centre out because you will make sure you get the right mix of beads.
Continue building this up until you have covered the whole visor.
I wore mine with red lips, Kenneth Jay Lane earrings from Sophie’s Closet and a vintage green dress from Singapore.
There is no airbrush in these images, so you are going to see me warts and all!
