Heather Wilson - Maker of Mad and Beautiful Things


Using ready made hat and fascinator bases, I embellish them to match your outfit, using feathers, beads, artificial flowers, and even cows and miniature tea sets have been requested!

All are hand sewn, no glue guns are permitted!

Whether they are mad or sensible, these hats will always be a talking point!

The Black Swan

Inspired by the film The Black Swan, I made this fascinator and wore it, dressed as the ballerina, to see the film in our local cinema!

The red beads represent the drops of blood, and the shape of the feathers mirror the shape of the classic dying swan pose in the ballet Swan Lake.

Wedding Hats

These lovely hats are for a Black and White themed Wedding in Italy.

The Bride's hat is a mini top hat, and the Bridesmaids and Mothers of the Bride and Groom had fascinators made to match their outfits.    The girls also carried the little handbags.
