My Atelier For Vogue International November Issue. "Passion In The City. Dama Blanca." Editorial.

Always such a great feeling to receive a new editorial with my hat in it. Vogue International November 2011 features beautiful editorial titled "Passion In The City. Dama Blanca."  The best part - the cover girl Maryna Linchuk is a girl from my home country of Belarus.
This time the request from the team of the stylist was very specific - recreate iconic hats of the 50-s , Audrey Hepburn style. You see my final choice on the picture above - white velour hat with oversized bow covered in white petals with delicate pleating on the back of the hat. At first I, of course, thought of legendary images of Audrey wearing Cecil Beaton's hats, large brimmed hats and tall pillboxes. Those serve as constant inspiration for so many milliners. I remember  being in Stephen Jones Atelier in London while the work on his new Spring Summer 2010 Collection was in progress. One of my very favorite pieces in it was replica of Audrey's large brim hat with long scarf attached to it.
I have decided to draw my inspiration from this very chic image of vintage Givenchy hat photographed  by Frank Horvat in 1957, adding several new details and modifying proportions to make it more relevant to the modern day and make it less dramatic although you all know how much I really love dramatic hats. I will photograph this hat from all angels so that you could see every detail of the back - several new techniques which I never worked with before.
And, of course, here is the rest of the editorial, I thought it came out very delicate and chic. I am wishing all wonderful weekend. With my Fall Session almost at the end, I am looking forward to putting up Christmas windows in my Atelier and preparing for a very busy month of December with too many parties , many wonderful friends visiting and a lot of fun in the City shopping!
