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.

We're ecstatic to announce that Britex Fabrics now offers both flocked and classic Russian netting in our online store. This is perfect for making romantic bridal birdcage veils, accessorizing fascinators, or adding a charming vintage touch to historical costumes. Of course, a chapeau adorned with black flocked veiling makes everyone appear like we should be riding the Orient Express to Turkey, or rendezvousing beneath the Eiffel Tower!
