DAUPHINE CROWN


My inspiration for the name of this hat was a French royal crown given to the princesses married to the Dauphin, future King of France.
These princesses were called Dauphines...
I used to love looking at their portraits, history books. They were so feminine and beautiful!

This is the "Dauphine" crown Fascinator.

A medium, golden handcrafted sinamay teardrop, stunningly adorned with stiffened hand painted golden Guipure Lace.
A wonderful composition of flowers, vines and leaves swirling among curled golden sinamay laces and bright gold Lattice weave sinamay laces.
This truly impressive headpiece sits on a fine golden metal headband.
