Trashy Tiaras

If you need a tiara for your next eco ball or costume party, here's the answer. These tiaras are modeled after historical Russian and English designs and modernised for today's glamorous world. They are made out of red, purple or red Waitrose supermarket plastic bags collected by the designer's sister who gets them from home deliveries. Then they are baked and moulded into shapes. Some are crotcheted into little evening bags to match the tiara, or knitted into tam's.

The designer likes doing things that don't exist, so she creates hand fans and fantasy hats for debutantes and super-heroes. Self-taught, she also makes bespoke, kinky gloves out of old fabrics, recycled stretch material, and dish clothes. At London Fashion Week, she was wearing a sweat shirt with huge holes crotcheted all over and she looked quite wonderful. These one-off creations have been featured in Italian Vogue and now we can join in the fun. :: Glovedup Gloves Via :: London Fashion Week
