In Honor of Mum, Coming Next Year!


In Honor of MUM:  – The last picture Mum and I had together was this one above.  I took it less than 24 hours before she passed away.  She was really sick but still being a Mum first and foremost, she wanted to help me play with Turbans and the Art of Scarf Tying for a Vintage and Retro Look (I was preparing for a presentation and she was helping me).  As you know, also, through my own journey with cancer and losing over half my hair I too started to rock a turban frequently over the last 8 months.   Due to so many compliments and much encouragement from those around me, I have decided I am going to create “Ready Made Turban Kits” using Mum’s left over fabrics and also using a mixture of hand made fabric flowers that Mum Made mixed with some additional fruit/flower arrangements being made for me.   As Mum love a good party (as we do) we are calling them, “A Party for your Head Turbans” I will put together stylish and ready made sets for you to buy. These will all be individual and will come with pictures on how to assemble and use.  These will be released early next year and I do hope you all like them..  Any feedback as to color and design that you would like to see are most welcome!!  Pre-orders are also welcome…    Just to get you excited and in the mood.. Let me share this with you all…this famous clip of the Hedy Lamarr Showing Jimmy Stewart how to tie her Turban.. “There, Stupid!! Classic!   Ours will have lots of flowers and fruit like mine below..  Did you know: One common name for turban hats is cache-misère (French for “hide misery”), proving that they’ve always been a bad-hair day remedy for discerning vintage ladies. There are many different types of turbans, from the dramatic jewel-adorned and exotic versions of the Twenties and Thirties to the functional styles of the Forties and simple versions of the Fifties.
