For the past 10 years I have been an adamant Vogue Collector. Not only Vogue US, but also Vogue Italia, Vogue Espania, and Vogue Paris. To me this publications represent an Institution of the very essence of Fashion. I remember when I just started this Blog in 2009 after the release of my first Collection hoping that one day, my hats will grace pages of Vogue. Fast forward to 2015, I am absolutely delighted to see my dream come true in the most magnificent way, with my hats featured in Vogue Germany, Vogue Paris, Vogue China, Vogue Japan, Vogue Latin America. The feeling is indescribable and those of you who work in design and fashion will probably understand what I am talking about. Every time I see my hats in Vogue, to me it is not only recognition of my hats, but also a little proof that what I do is good enough to be put on the pages of world's best publications.
And so "Vogue" hat is a tribute to the institution of Vogue. It is full of incredible millinery techniques, some of which I tried for the very first time like, for instance, illustration with acrylic on silk. I always believe in details and in my work details play critical part. To me this where the hat's soul is: crystal and pearl embroidery, appliques, creation of three dimensional design on flat surface and use of the delicate trimmings, almost invisible at first but always have such an important presence in overall design. With 2015 is almost over and few more Vogues behind my belt, I hope that the next year will bring even more spectacular Vogue editorials. I am looking forward to that! :-)
