What are fascinators and how would I use the items in this range?
A fascinator is a light decorative headpiece that is often worn for weddings, or on ladies days at the race track. It usually consists of decorative items such as feathers, flowers, mesh, lace or beads – all of which are affixed to a base such as the products included in this range. For anyone who is looking to create their own fascinator, this the perfect place to look. Whether you are hoping for an artsy design that will turn heads or something sleek and elegant. You could also use some of this range for creating hair pieces, just attach artificial hair to the shape that you desire. Add volume and lift to your hairstyle, or even go for the full bun or beehive without the usual timely prep or any damage to your hair caused by backcombing.
What is included in this range?
If you decided to create your own fabulous fascinator, then this range is the perfect place to stock up on all of the accessories that you will need. Check out our handy guide below to figure out which of these items are right for handcrafter headpiece.
Circles and Bases: These soft foam or felt products will provide the base for your DIY fascinator, and are made from a soft material that is easy to affix items too.
Headbands: Headbands are also a popular base for headpieces and fascinators. These can be particularly suited to young girls and would look great adorned with faux flowers for a bridesmaid’s headwear.
Combs: Plastic hair combs are a traditional and easy way to attach floral creations or other hair accessories. Arrange some of our faux flowers and pin to the side of your updo, or add pearls and beads to an intricate elegant design.
Clips: Alligator clips can be transformed in so many different ways, simply line with fabric or glitter using a hot glue gun for a simple clip that will keep your hair of your face. Alternatively, you can use them to keep various parts of your hat or fascinator affixed, or you can attach small flowers and place sporadically in a curly waterfall updo.
Do you have any tips for wearing fascinators?
Whatever the formal occasion that you have decided to make your very own fascinator for, there are a few other things that you should consider when designing your project. You will need to coordinate the size of your fascinator with yours or the wearer’s head and hairstyle, and it might be a good idea to measure this area or to draw out a sample shape using scrap fabric or paper. It is also recommended that you do way your hair the day before your event, this helps to ensure that your clips and headpiece, as well as your hairstyles, stays in place. Spray the area with hairspray before placing your fascinator, and backcomb for extra security.

Getting to Know – Beverley Edmondson Millinery
Company Name: Beverley Edmondson Millinery
Interview with: Beverley Edmondson
Location: Farnham, Surrey
How did Beverley Edmondson Millinery start and how long has the business been going?
Whilst at school I did work experience at Angels, the theatrical costumiers, assigned to the millinery department. It all started from there. I also did work experience with Bruce Oldfield couture, but found I was more drawn to millinery in the end. I then trained as a milliner at Kensington and Chelsea College of Fashion, but I am still always learning new techniques.
The business has now been going for ten years, with a high street shop for the past seven years. I started the business from market stalls and holding consultations in my father’s spare bedroom initially.
Who works at Beverley Edmondson Millinery and what are your roles?
We are a small team. We have several staff who work on the shop floor who can advise our customers about styles and colours. Another member mainly concentrates on any alterations required plus helping me with the making of the hats. It is just myself who designs the hats for our collections, or 1-2-1 with the customer for bespoke pieces. Another member purely concentrates on our online presence.
What wedding accessories do you offer?
We often say to our customers, “you bring the dress and we can do the rest”. Alongside our hats and fascinators, which are available either by bespoke millinery services or pret-a-porter, we also have a large range of clutch bags, pashminas, bridal hair accessories, corsages, a rainbow selection of ties and pocket squares, and even shoes and bags which we can dye to any shade required. We can accessorise everyone – bride, groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen and mother of the bride and wedding guests.
Do you design and make each of the pieces?
All the millinery, hats and fascinators, yes, I do – with the help of my wonderful team.
Where do you get the inspiration for your pieces?
Oh, in lots of places. I can be out and about and see the shape of a flower or a pleat in a dress, and it can inspire me for a whole design. Even materials in their raw form can inspire me.
Where can people purchase your beautiful hats and headpieces?
From our boutique at 27a The Borough in Farnham, Surrey. We have just moved from a smaller boutique next door into a lovely spacious shop right in the middle of the town.
We also offer 1-2-1 Skype consultations, so even if you are unable to make it to our store you still receive the same 1-2-1 service. Hats are so personal; you have to get to know the person to understand what to design for them.
How does your bespoke service work? What are the steps involved?
Our bespoke service is the majority of the work we do. This can vary enormously but we ask our customers to allow six to eight weeks. If I am making a bespoke hat for a client then the initial consultation and design process takes about an hour. We invite the client to the store with their outfit, where they have exclusive use of our fitting and consultation area. I then source the various materials from our suppliers, and when they arrive I can then start creating the headpiece. Many pieces will require blocking which then needs drying time. Once blocked, I then create the trims as per our client’s requirements. Once finished, we invite the client back into store to try their piece on, have it fitted and make any adjustments, if required.
What sets Beverley Edmondson Millinery apart from other millinery companies?
Our in-store experience which our clients love, in such a relaxing beautiful environment. So many of our clients come to us from personal recommendations, for the personal approach that we have towards each client.
We offer a personal service which not only includes the bespoke design of a hat or a headpiece, but also wraps, clutch bags and jewellery, and an extensive range of stylish shoes and bags which we can dye to any shade or colour. We really do offer everything but the dress.
The range of hats and fascinators we have available to purchase off the shelf or take as inspiration for bespoke designs is unrivalled within the south east. Clients can book personal design appointments or walk in and experience our products and services straight off the street in passing.
We get to know our clients in other ways, by offering millinery workshops, teaching traditional millinery techniques and offering fascinator making hen parties
We have also been nominated for, and won, many national awards, including currently being the Wedding Industry Awards Accessory Designer of the Year, nominated for niche fashion retailer of the year for the last two years running, and have just been shortlisted as a finalist for Drapers Accessory Brand of the Year. They have all come about from stringent application processes and client testimonials and feedback.
More personally, I now mentor other creatives starting out in handmade businesses, as here is very little content on how to make a living from your creativity. It is incredibly rewarding.
Describe Beverley Edmondson Millinery in three words.
Personalised. Creative. Eye-catching.
What’s your favourite piece that Beverley Edmondson Millinery produces?
Oh, so many! As each piece we create is an individual design, my favourites can change from week to week. Currently I love the headpiece that I made for myself for Royal Ascot.
Random question… If you could make a hat for anyone, who would it be and where would they wear it?
Probably the Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. They haven’t always got their styling right in the past, so I would love to work with them to help them refine and define their style.

Describe ESSENCE Fest in one word.
Tell us about how your business started.
Rosebud New York started as a need to provide options in millinery to women who have unusual head sizes. Millinery is a unique hands-on art form that has given me pleasure for 23 years. In 2005, I was the first African-American millinery artist to be licensed in the US. The small art-like hat miniatures were sold worldwide to museums, bookstores and hospitals. Rosebud New York hat factory is African-American owned and located in Philadelphia, PA. It remains the last standing and the largest factory in the US that services all forms of millinery. We now service over 200 hundred small boutiques, catalog companies and independent hat lovers. In 2016 THE GREAT AMERICAN HAT SHOW was created in New York to expose more people to the art of millinery. It is a unique show with a theme every year. The show is a fashion production that blends both fashion and film. It includes workshops and seminars on hat making and other educational topics (depending on the theme). People travel from all over the country to be a part of this unique experience.
Why is it important for your business to be represented at one of America’s largest festivals?
Essence is every woman. The pinnacle of African-American lifestyle. It is where we meet, celebrate and expose our people, young and old, to the latest fashions, art, health and entertainment. I am proud to be a part of the Essence Festival tradition.

We start early and bring our best.
What quote or mantra do you live by?
When much is given, much is required.
What is the essence of your business? Why should ESSENCE FEST attendees visit your booth?
The essence of my business is to teach women about the power of the hat. Millinery is and continues to be the most powerful accessory a woman can wear.

Millinery Muse – The VOICE
By Breanna Price
Even though The Mill, a vibrant new store and studio space belonging to hat designer and stylist Kenzie Kapp, just opened last month, its fruition has been a long time in the making. It is both the result of Kappâ€™s years of hard work and an illustration of whatâ€™s being accomplished by Kapp right now.
â€œItâ€™s kind of an illusion of an art gallery and then a factory in the back,â€ says Kapp. â€œThe energy is good. Itâ€™s bright, colorful and happy.â€
Visitors walking into The Mill are greeted first by a small crowd of colorful hats and headpieces, cheerfully waving to passerby from their placements on each stand. Surrounding the hats are white walls accentuated with vivid, multicolor paintings, and behind them lies the workspace where each hat and headpiece comes to life by none other than Kapp herself.
â€œIt all depends on the personâ€™s personality,â€ Kapp said. â€œThe dress and the person trigger what their headpiece will look like.â€
In short, each piece is as unique as the person wearing it. Although the hats on display may range in regards to price, color, style and size, there isnâ€™t any fluctuation in the high level of care put into making each hat and fascinator as dexterously crafted as the next.
â€œAs Iâ€™m making them, I probably have a new favorite almost every day,â€ Kapp said. â€œI love them all for different reasons. I think of each one as three-dimensional art. â€
That continuously renewed love for her craft and her work is a large part of what seems to keep Kapp moving forward. After growing up in Louisville, graduating with a Bachelor of Design from the University of Cincinnati and gaining exposure to countless other facets of design across the country for a few years, Kapp moved back to Louisville in 2008 with the experiences of an artist and the skill set of a professional.
â€œI just worked and worked and worked, and the hat part just grew and grew and grew,â€ Kapp said. â€œSo now itâ€™s all one big thing. Itâ€™s my whole life wrapped up into one. Itâ€™s an extension of everything Iâ€™ve been doing since I was nine years old. Itâ€™s just taken time for it all to come full-circle.â€
As her millinery endeavor comes full-circle, Kappâ€™s numerous clients are coming in at full speed this time of year. Though busy year-round with other events and with her work as a personal stylist, Kapp manages to stay on top of the custom requests and deadlines leading up to the Derby and Summer seasons by reminding herself: itâ€™s not about the pressure, itâ€™s about remembering why she still loves what she does even when the pressure becomes tiring.
â€œYou have to stay inspired. People ask me how I stay inspired, but itâ€™s not just one thing,â€ Kapp said. â€œYou get inspiration from life. You canâ€™t just stay in the house and expect to be inspired. I go outside, I walk around, I go for a drive, I read constantly: anything, everything, stuff Iâ€™m not even sure why Iâ€™m reading at times, like physics. Why would I read physics?â€
Hearing the kind and cheerful way in which Kapp speaks, it makes sense that someone whose personality is so glowing and friendly is the same person who designs and makes hats which spread that same animated vibe. Itâ€™s also hard not to smile as hard as she does when she blushes and admits that she was asked to design a hat for the vice presidentâ€™s wife, Dr. Jill Biden. Word of mouth somehow traveled to Washington, D.C. and the words it uttered were, “Kenzie Kapp.”
â€œI think it all boils down to education and natural instinct. Itâ€™s about who you are and learning how to keep going even when you fail,â€ Kapp said. â€œThe hours are really long and the work can get lonely, but then when you make it to a goal you set, itâ€™s like, â€˜Whoa!â€™â€
Having reached her current goal in opening The Mill, Kapp is taking a deep breath and focusing her sights on the coming months. Appreciating the success sheâ€™s found thus far, she knows itâ€™s work and love that got her to The Mill, and work and love that will keep her there.
â€œThis was my goal, and now Iâ€™ll have another goal. I made it to here, so now I have to keep moving,â€ said Kapp. â€œI just keep going. You have to keep it fun.â€
The Mill is open daily and by appointment at 400 E. Main St., Ste. 104. Additional information can be found online at www.kenziekapp.com.

Model Naomi Campbell takes spotlight at London Fashion Week
LONDON (AP) — Model Naomi Campbell took center stage at London Fashion Week on Saturday night with a gala charity benefit at the impressive setting of the world famous British Museum.
The gala capped a warm day filled with shows and presentations, including runway offerings by Alexa Chung and House of Holland and millinery by master hatter Stephen Jones.
Big names are still coming up, with shows scheduled by Burberry, Victoria Beckham, Christopher Kane and Julien Macdonald as Fashion Week reaches its glittery climax.
NAOMI CAMPBELL’S ‘FASHION FOR RELIEF’
The Naomi Campbell hosted event was the latest “Fashion for Relief” fundraiser organized by the well-known model, whose efforts are supported by a wide array of friends and designers. The first charity show was in 2005 in support of victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
At the event, the British Museum’s steps and foyer became a red carpet staging area for fashionable elite who passed the time drinking chilled champagne and margaritas while last minute checks were made on the models’ makeup and outfits.
Campbell said this year’s benefit was to raise funds to protect vulnerable children throughout the world and help provide education and skills development. The black-tie event drew a huge and enthusiastic crowd, including many who stayed for a private dinner after the runway performance.
Actor Pierce Brosnan and actress Naomie Harris were among the star contingent, and the show was supported by a wide array of global fashion houses including Gucci, McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood.
As an eclectic, gender-bending and fun night got underway, no single theme emerged. But the overall impact was impressive.
Some of the outfits were clearly meant to be over the top, including mens’ looks that seemed to bare all: Many outfits did not cover the chest (putting a premium on gym work), and most of the tops were sheer. Double-breasted suits were meant to be worn without shirts and costumes paired white vinyl shorts with clear tops.
Women were given more variety, including floral jumpsuits, beautiful black, tight-fitting dresses, one dramatic black pantsuit with puffy pink sleeves and shoulders, and “Conehead” style veils. There were also spiky overcoats, sexy kimono outfits, Russian-styled Rasputin outfits for men, and glittery silver elbow-length gloves.
Overall it was punky, with plenty of attitude and edge.
ALEXA CHUNG SHOW ATTRACTS ADORING FANS
An early start couldn’t deter Alexa Chung’s legions of loyal fans, who flocked to a Saturday morning show which included outfits that offered variations on her classic feminine themes.
Chung greeted fans with a video message featuring a montage of what she described as “AC World.” She described the new styles as “clothes to feel empowered in” with a theme of “female solidarity” and said they were designed to “get over heartbreak.”
The TV personality also offered a pep talk to her mostly youthful audience. “Enjoy life, kids,” she said. “It’s great.”
The collection featured a number of longer coats, including belted variations. Some were worn over slip dresses or beautifully constructed longer dresses. The colors were muted, with many variations of green and gray, and Chung paid homage to the American west with a denim dress that seemed to conjure up open skies and endless vistas.
There was a well-tailored double-breasted suit and some 60s-style jumpsuits, but no sign of Dynasty-style shoulder pads or power-dressing. Chung doesn’t do flash, but she couldn’t resist a few faux-snakeskin pieces.
Models wore mostly light makeup and flowing hairstyles to allow for a style that looked simple, easy and elegant rather than fussy or overdone.
A Fistful of Yen: Thoughts of a Millinery Collector: Spotlight on VooDoooDolly
A while back I was fortunate enough to procure a very special item and add it to my millinery collection. It was a handmade headdress by Mallory, owner of brand VoodoooDolly. I was allowed to commission something tailored after one of her one off test runs that I had fallen in love with. During the production time, I got to do a Q and A about her and her works and am happy to share my findings here with you. At the end I’ll be sharing how my headdress came to be and the finished product. All professional and personal photographs have been so graciously donated by VoodooDolly and I again thank her for all of her time and effort!
|Materials for a ooak tudor headdress|
How long have you been into millinery?
Millinery is actually a bit of a new world for me as far as my artistic endeavors go! I started playing around with buckram and wool felt after a hat making workshop at Dragon con three years ago. Since then, I’ve used my previous pattern making experience and sewing to play with hats! It was too much fun to not stick with.
What inspires you when you think about creating a piece?
When creating a piece, I have endless inspirations and thoughts constantly flowing through my mind. Even as the piece begins coming together my inspiration might suddenly change or something else will work so much better than what I had planned. I really let the inspiration come from anywhere! My favorites though are traditional costumes from around the world, and historical headpieces from the Tudor and Elizabethan time periods. I could look at Russian Kokoshnik headpieces forever and never run out of inspiration!
When drafting a piece together is there anything you watch or read to help with the creative process?
I often times find myself putting on historical fiction dramas, or any of the Lord of the Rings movies or Harry Potter films. The historical fiction ones are for when I need some beautiful costume inspiration, and the others are pure background noise. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE lotr and Harry Potter, but I can recite the lines from memory and I think it helps to have a story, but not have to look at the picture on the screen. I had a marathon of The Tudors tv series while making my first headdresses and love any show or movie involving Queen Elizabeth I. Then there’s Salem and Oulander with its gorgeous dresses… I could go on forever!
Are there certain materials that you like working with more than others?
There are materials that I like for their versatility more than others, but I often times find myself experimenting with new things. Buckram, millinery wire, interfacing, and (lots of) beads are my go-to items, but that’s just for the basics. If a piece feels like it’s missing something, I’m not afraid to reach out of my comfort zone and try something new- that’s what keeps me going back to make more!
So after getting the idea for a particular piece, about how
long does it take from beginning to end?
It really varies from piece to piece- but assuming I’ve
already gathered all the needed materials, I’d say an average of two weeks. I
work a full time job during the day, so as soon as I get home I get right to
work. The weekends are my big chunk of time when the majority of the magic
From the looks of
some of the hand beaded tudor style headdresses the intricate beading alone
looks pretty intense. What areas do you seem to get the most interest from?
The beading or the layering of patterned fabric, lace, and
transparent fabrics. I love to make new ‘textiles’ through layering or by
really packing beads next to one another. The patterns and play on scale I can
create really peak my interest the most.
Some of the headdresses have gained a lot of popularity in
the states, do you think you’ll be evolving to other kinds of hats and perhaps
bonnets in the future?
I do! I’ve been experimenting a lot lately with more diverse
buckram hat patterns and I’ve already got a few worked out J One that I’m excited
about is a large brimmed Victorian-style hat with a low profile cap. The
other’s are still being worked out to get the patterns juuuuuust right- but
they’re almost there!
As far as bonnets are concerned, I don’t see myself making them. So many very talented people already make beautiful bonnets, so I don’t really feel like that’s a niche that needs more filling. I’ll leave bonnets to the experienced bonnet pros! Also, my poor face looks so bad in bonnets that if I ever pattern tested them, I wouldn’t be able to tell if I’d done a good job or not!!
|The Victorian Style Hat|
|Veiled Tudor headdress|
My Headdress experience:
My headdress was very similar to this test run she did in the photo pictured below. It looked perfect for a certain dress I own, Sweet Devil, and it instantly clicked that this was something I needed to get my hands on.
90,000 Presentations in the 2nd grade.
Before the thunderstorm.
It was a sunny day. Tanya and Alyonka gathered in the meadow. Suddenly a whirlwind flew. A cloud came over. There will be a thunderstorm!
And there is fragrant hay near the barn. The milkmaids are in a hurry to put it under the roof. Petya Drozdov carries hay to the barn on a pitchfork. The collective farm chairman also came running to help.
The girls grabbed the rake.
Together they removed the hay. And then the downpour poured down.
Analysis. What are the names of the girls who helped remove the hay? Why didn’t Tanya and Alyonka go to the meadow? Why was everyone in a hurry to remove the hay? What signs of an imminent thunderstorm are named at the beginning of the story?
The kitten was playing and knocked off the hat. The hat covered Vaska.
We saw kids and got scared. A living hat crawls across the floor.
The children ran away to the kitchen.Vadik began to shoot at the hat with potatoes from door .
Vadik knocked off his hat. And the kitten runs to the guys. Meow!
Analysis. Who are the kids scared of? How did Vaska end up under the hat? Why did the hat move?
Hedgehog and Wolf.
Got a hedgehog of berries.
He met a gray wolf. The hedgehog greeted him politely.
The wolf rushed at the Hedgehog. He wanted to take away the berries.
The hedgehog quickly curled up and pricked the Wolf in the nose.The Wolf howled in pain and fell to the ground.
And the hedgehog ran away.
Analysis. How did the hedgehog defend itself from the enemy? Why are the words Hedgehog and Wolf written with a capital letter everywhere? How did the Hedgehog behave when meeting a wolf?
Alone in the ocean.
It was a dark night. The ship was sailing off the coast of Africa.
Suddenly the sailors heard crying. A searchlight was lit. A beam of light illuminated the boat.
It turned out to be a Negro boy.The boat was lifted to the deck. The boy was very weak. The doctor helped him.
The sailors learned that eight days ago he went out into the ocean to fish. The wind carried him far from the shores.
The ship changed its course and headed for the coast. The boy returned to his family.
Analysis. Why did the sailors change their path and head for African shores? Who did they think of when they heard the story of the Negro boy? Why did the boy go out into the ocean?
Joy in the bulb.
In the fall, my dad brought me a large onion. He said that joy is hidden in the bulb.
Mom took the pot with the onion to the basement. A month later, a sprout appeared. I put the pot in the bathroom. I covered the sprout with a paper cap. He needed coolness.
Here a bud came out. I moved the flower to the window. Before the New Year, blue scented flowers opened up. It was hyacinth.
Hyacinth decorated our festive table. That was the joy in the gray onion.
Analysis. What kind of festive table is the girl talking about? Why did the blue fragrant flowers bring great joy to everyone this evening? What did the flower grow out of? How was the beautiful hyacinth grown?
Natasha Durova walked in the courtyard of the circus. She was wearing a white fur coat and a fluffy hat.
There was a cage in the corner. Polar bears lived there. The girl threw fresh snow at them.
Suddenly the bear pulled the baby into the cage.The animals began to roll Natasha on the floor like a ball.
People screamed. Durov came running. He ordered a lot of fish to be thrown into the cage.
Dad entered the cage and barred his daughter from the animals. So he stood while Natasha left the cage.
People said that Natasha was saved by a miracle.
Analysis. What do you think? Why do you think that Natasha was saved by her dad? How did Durov save his daughter? What kind of person was Durov?
I went out of the forest into the meadow and was surprised. How many colors! They are like a festive round dance.
Daisies turn white in a green meadow, dandelions turn yellow, and mouse peas turn blue. And above all, all the more fun – purple bells.
They sway, bow in the summer breeze. They are the ones who joyfully greet me.
These lovely flowers of our meadows bloom all summer long.
Analysis. Why was the writer surprised when he went out to the meadow? What words did he use to name the different colors? What flowers did he call cute and why?
What is the advantage of the straw hat LED?
Straw Hat LED is the name commonly given to LEDs that have a shorter, wider, and smoother envelope than a typical 5mm epoxy LED.The main feature is that a very wide beam angle is achieved – typically a full cone angle of 90 to 160 degrees.
HOWEVER, this is NOT what you described in your question, and no one (as of Jan 21, 2013) actually answered your question.
Most LEDs use a molded lens as part of the construction.
The LED you referenced mostly does not use lenses – it uses an internal reflector instead – seeSee the diagram below.
When the LED is aligned to emit vertically (as shown), the light from the array travels vertically at a relatively wide angle, meets the mirror surface, and is reflected nearly horizontally. Since the light rays from the array are not parallel, they will cross the mirror at different angles depending on the source and destination, so the light will travel in a very wide-angle swath or halo. There is NO direct frontal radiation, since the mirror assembly is opaque.There may be some direct radiation at all angles due to internal reflection in the LED housing, but the level will be low.
Why do this? / What is it used for?
- Because they can.
- Some people find this helpful. for example, an array of these LEDs, located behind the dash and facing outward, will illuminate the cavity behind the dash. It can act as a formal or informal light guide.
If you place this LED in a larger external reflector, it will place most of the light on the reflector surface a short distance from the LED. So a very short reflector can do a good job or shape the beam into some other straight pattern.
I have seen powerful LED lights designed for police use. They had standard wide angle SMD LEDs and deep reflectors, but the vast majority of the light was processed by the area just behind the LED.
