While Paris is reporting couture-delicious, intriguing and well, not so fabulous details from Paris Haute Couture Week, while some of us are still trying to form cohesive opinion of the long awaited Schiaparelli Haute Couture Collection and reframing from reading reviews on purpose to make sure the opinion is not clouded nor tainted by provocatively neutral, carefully formed nothings, while Dior Haute Couture continues to insist on creating plain disappointment titled "Where did Dior go ?", and while I am finding myself eternally grateful for the outstanding true Haute Couture by Alexis Mabille and Giambattista Valli (with several more shows to come) , I decided to post images of "Pins And Needles" tiny hat I created just for the shier fun of it as a little reminder to myself that nothing, read it out loud NO-THING, can replace the beauty created by the capable Les petite mains.
Some time ago I discovered my love for working with veils. Embroidering fine, web-lite silk veil is a challenge on its own but the result is always breathtaking as it is in case of "Pins And Needles" . Embroidery along the edge of the veil was done with the thinnest plastic thread specifically to give veil that beautiful wave effect all around. And so, I am intrigued to see what else Haute Couture Week in Paris holds in store.Wishing everyone great week ahead!
