The great bonus of a couture commission is talking to your client at the initial consultation so you can create a design that fulfils their dreams. Ann & I enjoyed some stimulating & amusing discussions and very soon settled on the design to complete her beautiful lace ensemble. Here you see Ann wearing the finished headpiece, a layered sinamay saucer embellished with tail feathers from Pendragon – the renown peacock who lives at Hopetoun House, Edinburgh – finished with Guterman sequins, and crin ruffles.
I’m so pleased the weather held fine, too.
Thank you so much for the wonderful commission, Ann.
