Two pictures taken from a beautiful girl wearing one of my bibis at the last Edition of Boheme Sauvage, Berlin's monthly party of the 1920's. Everyone there dresses with Chapeaux claques, boas and cocktail dresses.
I went there twice. It was so fun! I hope to go again soon.
I blocked this hat yesterday. It is not dry yet. The felt was given to me with some other material. It was "made in France" but I don't know where it was bought. Do you know what is it made of? Doesn't seems like rabbit to me? Thanks for your help! :-)
In this blog I usually talk about me me and me. But last weekend I have dicovered this berliner label that I really like called twisted talents> and I wanted to share. Located in Friedrichshain, twisted talents is a collective working in collaboratio with the fashion designer Betty Bund. And excuse me: they DON'T DO FASHION, THEY DO T-SHIRTS!
The other good news is: for every sold t-shirt one euro is given to the Assiociation "Ohne Schliddrüse leben e.V." (an association for people living without a thyroid gland).

This morning a production team came shotting in my workshop for a canadian website about classical music (http://www.radio-canada.ca/espace_musique/webRadioClassique.asp). They asked me a lot of question about my work, my inspiration and of course my life in Berlin. They have ordered a hat for a young canadian conductor, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who will conduct the Berliner Philarmormie three nights this week. The hat had to be inspired by classical music.
I finally gave to my friend Biri a black hat that I made for her. I have been promising her one for a long time. Doesn't she look gorgeous? She wore it at an opera Premiere here in Berlin and felt good with it. So happy!
I am leaving after tomorrow to Bavaria, where I am going to participate to the biggest hat fair in the world. I am over excited! It will take place in this wonderful Renaissance castle, in Neuburg an der Donau.
The initiator of this event ist Mrs. Patel-Mißfeldt, a famous German artist who devoted her life to painting and creation. She doesn't make hats but she adores them. She probably has a huge collection at home. She is one of a kind colourful Grande Dame!
I am looking forward to meet other "Hutliebhaber" (people who are passionate about hats) and hat makers. I hope to meet a lot of nice and inspiring people!
The last few weeks have been more than busy. I have been producing as much headpieces as possible for the upcoming Hat Fair taking place in Neuburg an der Donau in Bavaria. It is the biggest hat fair in the world (so they say).
The picture is not super nice. But I was impatient to post something already. I know I don't have enough hats yet. I don't know what the ladies there will like to buy, what shape, what colour, for which occasion. I am starting to be really nervous. How much bibis do I need for a 2 and a half days fair?
I'll keep you posted.
If you are curious, have a look here it's the website of this amazing fair:
