Brighton Fashion Week – Review: Sustain

“The Hybrid Pop-up Boutique?s collection showed twelve stunning looks, headpieces playing a major role in each. The collection included three designers: Natalie Courtois Vintage, Mojiana Jewellery and Anna Chocola Millinery. The first six displayed sleek black dresses, each with accents of gold. The second half was a contrast of bright, bold colours. All the pieces nodded to previous eras, demonstrated in the variety of styles that walked the runway. Could there be a better example of how vintage fabrics can be up-cycled and re-used?”

Beautiful models Isabelle Gloria & Elaine Valerie share their love of retro lifestyle and fashion via superbly sophisticated photo shoots.

Anna Chocola commissioned by burlesque performer Jessica Stark

I’m very proud and happy to have been commissioned a stage hat by Miss Jessica Stark!

The gorgeous burlesque performer was looking for a “spectacular headpiece” for her debut performance “A Thief in the Night”…

I used many antique sparkles from vintage jewels, on the top and the veil, plenty of sequins and glass beads, and feathers on the top. I must say the result is very pleasing and most importantly Jessica loves her “Naughty but Nice” Pillbox hat!

Anna Chocola “Inès” Cloche Hats commissioned by composer Mira Calix

Music composer & artist Mira Calix has commissionned 4 of my original 1920s great grandmother’s “Inès” cloche hats, for her live performance at the British Film Institute, on Sept 27th 2012 (as part of the “Genius of Hitchcock” season).

Mira and vocal trio Juice Ensemble performed the live score to Hitchcock’s newly restored “Champagne” (1928). It was truly remarkable and I’m very proud to have helped turn the 4 girls into flappers for the show.
