Fashion Friday – New Talent – Natalie Edmonds Millinery

It is so exciting meeting new up and coming milliners and seeing their take on millinery.  With new milliners comes new ideas and today we would love to introduce you to Natalie Edmonds.

Natalie has been learning millinery since 2010 as she has a natural flare for creating and this would help build on her existing textiles and design skills.  Natalie said millinery was challenging and rewarding and there are always something new to learn.  “I’m always researching new styles, ideas, trends and enjoy following the domestic and international fashion houses to see how I can use my talent to suit my client needs.  Millinery also brings peace and order to my often crazy schedule.”

Natalie has participated in workshops with both domestic and international award-winning milliners as she loves building on her skill set and learning new techniques.  Her love has developed for specialising in race day headwear but is enjoying special pieces for mother of the bride/groom, cocktail parties and special functions.

It is with pride that Natalie is working hard for her first Spring/Summer collection to be released at the Thoroughbred Events’ Spring Racing Luncheon ‘exclusively”.  Her main focus is to produce designs and styles that will suit everyone – using beautiful Spring colours to enhance her millinery.

When it comes to making a headpiece Natalie is very much mood orientated.  “Sometimes I’m fascinated by a particular colour, fabric or texture or I will see a shape that I just want to block,” she said.

“I just let myself be guided by the process and enjoy blocking and making trims as I go, sometimes my original idea never eventuates and I end up with something far more magical- which is always rewarding.”

We are all be cheering Natalie on as she showcases for the first time.  Our guests are in a real treat.  Good luck Natalie and continue working on your dream!!!

Fashion Friday – Let’s Talk Spring

Short and sweet today.

Fashion Friday is about getting your thoughts around Spring.  Our Spring events went up this week so in order to start planning, the first question is – “What are this year’s Spring Colours?”.

Always a good place to start.  Once you know the colours, you can go to your wardrobe and see if you have anything at all in there. .Of course we all need at least 1 new outfit but if there is a piece in your wardrobe in one of these colours, have a think on how you can make use of it.

By the time you get to our Spring event, you are good to go concentrating on what headpiece will “Work” in your wardrobe.

So here is this year’s Spring colour palette

Time to start planning!!!!!
