Braided Boater for Sydney's Style Dr
This Month the effervescent Style Dr approached me to create a piece for Sydney's Fashion on the Fields and of course I was very willing to oblige!
This boater is built up using a technique I have been working on that is based on paper quilling. Each little floret is built up using beautiful paglina braid that is bent and curved into a shape and then stitched into place. By the end of it I had hand stitched no less than 120 meters of braid and used over five spools of thread - a labour of love over many hours, many late nights and many cups of tea.
Kash set the standard for modern elegance that day.
