The Grand Dame Of "The Fellini Files" Collection - "Fellini's Roma" Headdress.

 The NYFW Presentation of "The Fellini Files" Collection is scheduled for tomorrow and with a just a few hours to go and complete mayhem here in the Atelier packing, prepping and finalizing details with my team, I thought it would be an appropriate time too introduce to you the Grand Dame of "The Fellini Files" Collection -  headdress I titled "Fellini's Roma".
 "Fellini's Roma" took staggering 16 weeks of production, countless hours and  the most exquisite materials one could find. Inspired by the Fellini's vision of the opulence of Rome, its history and its cultural presence I wanted to make sure I pay tribute the Rome of the Fellini. The headdress bearing a shape of the Pope's headgear, features complex Catholic Cross  embroidery in 3D with the 100 year old ruby cabochon in the center, absolutely insane length of hand died peacock feathers and 5 unique roses. I finally resolved to use a half a yard of precious Schiaparelli fuchsia velvet (I discovered and bought in Paris years ago) in combination with multiple lairs of gold Italian lace.
 This is one of those pieces that I know I will be proud of years later. It pays a powerful tribute not only to Federico Fellini and Fellini's Rome but, I dare to think, to the majestic beauty of Millinery Art.
