Kunstlerhaus Bethanien exhibition in Berlin

I was invited to exhibit two pieces in the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin. Celebrating 40 year anniversary with the opening of ‘The Mechanical Corps. On the Trail of Jules Verne’. I went to the launch night, it was very well attended and we had a brilliant evening. The gallery also has studio space for artist to work in.

Aviatrix Fascinator by Prof Maelstromme

I have been trying to fit making this fascinator into my making schedule for a couple of years. It has been shelved for many other projects and I finally got round to finishing it!  It is based on a flying helmet,  and I have incorporated vintage parts from a flying helmet and aviator goggles. Recycling or upcycling the artifacts, well it has saved them from the landfill.

The original idea was created to match and be worn with this wonderful flying jacket corset which was made for the Asylum Steampunk fashion show.

Part three of photos from The Bram Stoker International Film Festival Fashion Show held in Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK.

This is our third model; the scumptious Evie Wolfe wearing a shocking pink bird fascinator and matching beautiful corset and skirt. I designed the hat to contrast with her blue hair!  I wanted to keep the collection themed by Gaslight romance and Victorian horror.

Mad Tea Party Fascinators ~

While clearing out my mums attic I found a wonderful childs doll small china tea set. My mum gave me a bottle of Pimms for doing it! so after a couple of glasses I made the teacups and saucers into hats.  I immediately went out searching all of the local antique shops for more, the mismatched the better.  I have added artificial flowers, hair net, hat pins, spoons, vintage odd earrings and even a spider!
