"Jardine Des Tuileries" Hat Of My New "Les Enfants Terribles" Collection.

 It has become a wonderful tradition for me, starting each September to be able to introduce you to the hats of my latest Collection. So, this September, I would like to start with a Diva of hat I have named "Jardine Des Tuileries". One of the most beautiful hats of my latest Collection Les Enfantes Terribles.
 The inspiration for this hat cam from one of the most beautiful places in Paris, I visit every time I travel to France - Jardine Des Tuileries. It has become an inspiration to so many wonderful artists and writers, a home to so many documented and untold love stories through out so many centuries - every time I visit it I wonder about those who walked in the Jardine Des Tuileries two hundred years before me...
 The beauty of everything that is connected to this place for me became a hat. I thought of   Jardine Des Tuileries covered in snow when I worked on this hat. The idea of a sparkling beauty in combination with jewel toned silk and gemstone beading  became irresistible to me. I could see her walking  through the snow covered paths of the Garden, a little bit lost, lonely...
 I have a secret. Every time I walk through the golden gates of Jardine Des Tuieries I make wish - it always comes true a short while later. This Fall I am looking forward to doing the same. :-)
 I am wishing all of you wonderful Weekend and would like to invite you to stop by next Tuesday as I will be launching spectacular Give Away from my wonderful followers-readers.

Anya, I think Tuileries est une belle inspiration. It is also my favorite garden in Paris! I will now make a wish as you've suggested and hope it comes true.

Your hat is a beautiful tribute and j'adore the rouge as well, as I have a long running series on my Paris blog I call Paris Rouge.
Bon dimanche,

WOow so not Only this hat (obviously) is magnificent BUT this striking chromatic crescendo between RED § fuchsia (perfectly) achieves to honor its artistic appeal Dear Anya !!!
ps: Frankly Always glad to see how much Paris can be a such fructiferous cradle when it comes to creative inspiration . . .

à Bientôt, Antoine

The reds and fuchsia are exquisite! I was fortunate enough to be in the garden last early December during a glorious snowfall. It is one of my favorite places in Paris, and it is amazing how different it can be during the various seasons. To capture the "wedding cake" carrousel in the midst of snow thrilled me. The ponds were full of ice and snow... I felt like the snow queen!

Love this post, kindred spirit!

Such a beautiful hat and a beautiful story behind it. As I read this post, I couldn´t help but be curious of how exactly Jardine Des Tuileries looks like to be a powerful inspiration to artists like you. I´m glad you included photos of it.

It´s my dream to be able to visit Paris, and it´s coming true soon. I will definitely visit Jardine Des Tuileries. Thank you for inspiring me. :)

Hello Anya .. I've been away from blogland for August and September because of moving home and studio so I'm just catching up on your lovely posts since you came back as well. Today is the Season Premiere of the Fall Season of the Ooh La Frou Frou blog if you care to drop by. The fiery colors in the ballgown on the Ooh La Frou Frou Collection autumn card introduced today on the blog remind me of the fiery colors in your strikingly beautiful creation here! And I love that you make a wish and it comes true ... how totally delightful! Happy Autumn to you ;)

OH, Anya! This hat is stunning, and elegance at it's most beautiful. The intertwining of fabrics and textures is so gorgeous! Your inspiration and the Jardine Des Tuieries is so enchanting, and how wonderful that you make a wish. I dream of doing the same at that spot someday! :)

Eric and I have made a new design from herringbone cashmere, and as always I would love to hear your opinion. I value so much what you have to say!
