My inspiration for the name of this hat was the beautiful German actress and singer Marlene Dietrich!
I was very young when I first saw a photo of Marlene and since then, I've loved everything about her!
I've designed this lovely cocktail as a tribute to her!
This is the "Marlene" Cocktail Hat.
A bright yellow cocktail cap base, hand blocked from high quality wool felt.
It is trimmed with vintage black French lace, garnished with an adorable English Mallard duck's tail feather and finished with a knot-bow with a pearled heart.
This cocktail hat is worn on a millinery black elastic which sits behind the ears and around the base of the head.
The design is stunningly simple but very elegant! It will go with almost any outfit and sure to be worn time and time again.
