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.
