The Most Outrageous Ascot Hats
 

With Ascot fast approaching let’s take a look at some of the most outrageous Ascot hats. Each year there are certain types of hats we expect to see but these ladies may have taken things a little too far. What do you think?

The patriots:-

 Royal Ascot - Ladies Day, Day 312 Royal Ascot 2011 - Ladies Day

These ladies like to celebrate being British with designs inspired by the union jack, London land marks and traditional English pastimes like cream tea!

The foodies:-

4.14 1 Royal Ascot 2008 - Ladies Day

There is always a large amount of food and drink based hats. I think the above ladies may have gone a little overboard all their hats do is make me hungry! And lets not forget with food you need drink pims o’clock anyone!

This definetly gives a new meaning to the cocktail hat!

The horse lovers:-

Ascot of course is initially a horse racing event so these ladies like to remind us with horse and racing inspired hats.

Bird lovers:-

Hats are often decorated with feathers, but these ladies like to go the whole leg and have an entire bird on their heads.

Bigger is best:-

Some try to aim to have the biggest hats there. Personally I think I’d end up with a headache but then there’s always pain where fashions concerned. At least the umbrella lady is trying to be practical!

The Art Lovers:-

These ladies let art inspire their hats instead of practicality. The middle image shows model Carla Creegan wearing a hat inspired by the artwork of Louise Dear.

There are no words for these next few hats! :-

Anyone need an ashtray?

Most people believe the over the top hat fashions of Ascot are a modern madness, but check out these images from the 60’s and 70’s.

The above ladies were the trend setters of Ascot in their day and were clearly ahead of their time.

So what can we expect this year? Who knows but I’m sure 2016 Ladies day will be outrageously Spectacular!

There’s nothing better then seeing the face of a client when you show them their commisioned headpiece for the first time!

Often N.Joy.Millinery gets commissions from people who have found the perfect outfits and have thought finding a hat or fascinator to match would be the easy part. You can pick up a relatively cheap hat or fascinator in most large department stores. In the generic shades of white navy and black and perhaps a handful of this seasons colours. But to find a true match nothing beats having a piece hand made for you.

Of course having a handmade piece costs money and takes time. But here at N.Joy.Millinery. We strive to work within most budgets and within your time frame. N.Joy usually likes a month to make a head piece this guaranties material deliveries and gives N.Joy the time needed to make your headpiece as stunning as you imagined it. However over the December month N.Joy was put to the test with three commissions two of which she had three weeks for, the other just over a week! It was a challenge to say the least but N.joy loves a challenge.

(Above: Previous Commissions)

The first piece was for a bride having a small ceremony in a stunning white and silver Saks dress suit. She wanted a sophisticated piece that tied in with her outfit and was similar to a piece of N.Joy’s she had already seen.

The piece N.Joy created for her was made on a white, oval, sinamay base with large silk silver roses covered in one hundred Swarovski crystals that sparkled from every angle. Nestled between the two largest roses was a curled ostrich spine and diamond stripped feathers. The base sat at an angle on a  handmade headband made of lightweight wire that is flexible to different head shapes and easy to wear.  Simply sophisticated like the bride to be herself.

The second piece was for a fashionable mother of the bride, who had a glitzy vintage inspired outfit that needed the perfect fascinator to tie it all together.

N.Joy made a chocolate brown, sinamay, teardrop base. Under laid with shimmering gold sinamay that brought a subtle sparkle to the base. The top of the base had hand sculpted sinamay loops made into a bow with stripped pheasant neck feathers. Draped across the bow was stunning vintage lace with delicate hand beading using fine glass beads and delicate seed pearls. Over the top was a layer of light brown veiling that added to that vintage quality. The fascinator was then attached on a handmade headband dyed to the shade of the ladies hair colour.

The third piece was for a step mother of the bride who had a stunning emerald green lace dress that no hat or fascinator seemed to match.

The colour was a rich highly saturated royal green that even N.Joy struggled to match. N.joy ordered  the closes shade of green sinamay she could find and then hand died it until she was satisfied it was the right colour.  She then turned this into a teardrop base with a layer of gold sinamay underneath giving the shimmer effect like the last piece.  Using sinamay loops in gold and green she sculpted a tiered bow effect  at the top end of the fascinator centred with a stunning vintage broach. The vintage broach was antique gold coloured with delicate filigree and tiny gemstones in white and green. The fascinator was finished off with stripped and curled feathers in white and antique gold and sparkling metallic gold veiling. The fascinator was then attached on a handmade headband dyed to the shade of the ladies hair colour. A very festive piece for a Christmas wedding.

       At a recent charity event Natalie-Joy (N.Joy) met the lovely owners of the Russell Robin hair studio.  Wearing one of her own creations N.Joy and Robin (one of the dynamic brothers who own and run the studio) got into a conversation about fashion hats and hair. N.Joy was invited to a collaboration shoot mixing Robin Neal’s creative hair colouring and styling with N.Joy’s distinctive headwear.

                N.Joy was thrilled to work with someone who had worked with celebrities like Amy Winehouse, Rodger Moore and Depeche Mode. As well as working with well know singers and actors. Both brothers have travelled widely with their work and exhibited their artistic hairstyling at such events like Malan fashion week and the Brit awards. To a budding young business women like N.Joy this was an opportunity not to be missed. The brothers originally from Essex trained and worked in Regents Street London but moved to the beautiful location of Cornwall to bring up their families though this has not but a dampener on their career.

One of the talking points of the Alverton’s party was the mouth watering buffet with a suckling pig, whole salmon cheese platter and chocolate fountain all displayed on framed mirrors surrounded byendless glasses of prosecco the party was an extravaganza that Gatsby himself would have been proud of.

Baker Boy Commission-

One of my recurring customers asked me to make her an everyday  hat something to fit her personality, and something that would suit her style.

                Initially I get to know the client, what colours they wear,  what’s a typical outfit for them, What kind of decoration they like. Then I come up with initial sketches and show them to the customer . If they like the sketches I go ahead with the making process.

                The hat I designed was inspired by the 1960’s baker boy style. I wanted to use purples and creams with a floral print. I didn’t want the floral fabric to look too fussy so I decided to only make too panels in the floral fabric and then add a little floral feature on the side of the hat.

                Colours decided, I then had to work out a paper pattern for the hat. I looked at different vintage baker boy patterns and adjusted them to fit my hat. This hat was more like dress making then millinery. Luckily I’ve had plenty of practice in dress making! I then made a mock up hat so I could work out the exact sizing and how much fabric I needed.  For most hats I make in sinamay and felt,  I don’t make a mock up or pattern as the hat is sculpted on a block and is a hard hat as oppose to a soft hat witch this commission was.

                After sourcing the fabric I beguine on the final hat itself. It was definitely a tricky commission but I really enjoyed the challenge. The hat turned out fabulous and suited my customer perfectly.  I even worked in some decorative lining just to add to the cuteness of this piece.
