Tipsy White Chapeau

May 23, 2011 by Britex Fabrics 2 comment(s)

Sigh! We knew that chapeaux are all the rage, but this causes our heart to beat even faster with delight! Here is the marvelously talented artist Yoko Ono at the Costume Institute Gala 2011, to celebrate the opening of the exhibition ‘Savage Beauty’ in honor of recently deceased innovator and designer Alexander McQueen. She is wearing a fantastique tipsy Stephen Jones hat with a whoosh of swooping white millinery netting over one bright and bespectacled eye.

    Please tell me if the dahlia copper button has a pink color. I'm looking for a button for a teal blue shirtwaist dress I'm making. I'm not very creative but I seem to like the pink with the teal blue. Any suggestions? Pat

    This button has some natural color variation, ranging from brown, to red-copper to gold-copper.
