But some people have a way with bits and bobs and can create the most inspired pieces from the most unlikely materials. Which is why I just had to introduce you to Chloe Haywood from Hatastic http://www.hatastic.folksy.com/
Chloe started making hats and fascinators when she couldn't find a hat to go with a vintage cream crepe dress for a very special wedding. She wanted a fascinator, but all she could find were bright and brash designs that were really expensive and looked like everything else on the high street.
I met Chloe a few years back when I worked on her equally creative sister's wedding. She can lovingly craft the most amazing head pieces including bridal veils, hats and fascinators.
Each item is handmade from secondhand, vintage or recycled items. Her headpieces are unique, so you know that your design is a true one off. No mass produced stuff here. Perfect for the bride or wedding guest with an individual style.
Hatastic! has been nominated to be Accessory Designer of the Year at the Finest Fashion Awards in July 2011. One to watch!
