Sherbet And Blue Flower Beaded Fascinator, Marty Robbins

This hat's image comes from a suit made for Marty Robbins by Nudie Cohn. Never mind if you don't know who either of these people are, though I may have piqued your curiosity. It's a fairly simple design of two delicate flowers on a sherbet background.

It's a fascinator or cocktail hat. It can sit in many different ways on your head. Though a cocktail hat is traditionally worn in the evening, this one does the days equally well. Please convo me to let me know if you'd like it to have clips or elastic. The hat is made from Thai silk, glass seed beads and russian net veiling.

Nudie Cohn made ridiculous suits. They were covered entirely with embroidery and rhinestones. Nudie, as he was known, made these suits from the 40s right into the 80s, and he made them for some of the most famous musicians of the day, from Roy Rogers to the Rolling Stones. Unfortunately, almost all of Nudie's suits were made for men.

Well I think it's entirely unfair that these amazing suits were made mostly for men. Women like sparkly things too. In fact, they like them even more, which is why when I reclaimed Nudie's designs, I gave them even more BLING, and embroidered them in luminous beads.
