HAIR HATS COLLECTION INSPIRED BY LOUIS VUITTON A/W 12/13 CAMPAIGN


I was completely blown away by the beauty and elegance of the A/W12/13 Louis Vuitton advertising campaign shot by Steven Meisel which really inspired me to create my own version of the handcrafted hats woven entirely from hair wefts. The hat in the centre was made by basket weaving hair to form a huge piece of material. I wanted the fabrics to add and create depth, so I used three different shades of wefts. The blonde hat on the right was created by twisting the hair wefts until they buckled on themselves. These were then all sewn together. I wanted to give the red braided hat a tribal twist. Braids of all different size, texture and colour were entwined together to form a strong structure. I wanted the hats to be entirely made of hair, so any sewing that was required was done using strands of hair wefts.
