Fabulous fascinators


Dancer Ruth St Denis in a costume for Radha from 1904, sporting a fine example of the fascinator headdress. I’ve always been, er…fascinated by these things so it’s encouraging to see them making a slight comeback, as with the unique piece below by artist Lisa Falzon.


Ms Falzon has a new Etsy shop, Moth and Bayleaf, selling similar creations which she calls “flabbergasters”. She encourages those who like the look of her designs to spread the word.

  1. They are fab and have made a great comeback. Easy to wear and so easy to fix in your hair and no more hat hair. Stunning feathers and crystals and fabrcis and maybe even diamonds!!!!
