Master Millinery Section Entry – Royal Melbourne Show

Was honored to be invited to present a piece in the Master Millinery Section at the Royal Melbourne Show.  This section is an invitational only section for members of the Millinery Association of Australia.  It was first introduced by Phillip Rhodes when he was President in 2015 and has been carried on by following Presidents and committee.

Competitions such as this are an opportunity to explore new techniques and present showcase pieces.  This year the section along with the other millinery sections were judged by current President Rose Hudson.  Rose is an well known Theatrical Milliner and teacher.

My piece was created using vibrant blue silk dupion with the pleats created by hand.  The cut pattern was developed and sliced into the folds.  Secured to the back of the head it creates a halo like shape around the head.
