Just what exactly IS a fascinator? Well, technically it's a headpiece, commonly made with feathers, sinamay, fabric, flowers, sequins, rhinestones or beads, that attaches to the hair with a clip, comb, headband or barrette. It can be worn as a kicky alternative to a hat. It's the easiest way we know to amp up the style of any outfit and express your personality! From a black tie event to the Kentucky Derby to a Gatsby garden party, fascinators are the perfect accessory. Fashionable and fun, they can be worn on the front, side or, to showcase an updo or chignon, the back of the head. We can custom-design one for you, too!
The Feathered Head
In ancient Greece, women wore flowers, vines and leaves woven into crown-like wreaths in their hair to celebrate special occasions. People felt a deep connection with nature, which was given importance in the religions of the day. As many flowers and plants had special meanings, Greek goddesses were identified by wearing specific kinds of flora. So even if you’re not celebrating the wild rites of Dionysus (the god of wine and merrymaking, of course) by wearing a wreath of grape leaves and ivy, vintage Chandra's wreath of white Lily of the Valleys will make your wedding day or garden party glorious. 8" diameter, 1.5" H.
