Art Deco Headwear

A few weeks ago I made a collage of inspiring headwear to stick in my sketchbook!

About a year ago, I suddenly realized, that I really really enjoy hats. I have started a small collection ever since, and "vintage hat" is still my favorite search term on etsy :) In addition to clothing, I would love to make a couple of accessories for the Gossamer collection, but unfortunately I won't be able to make beautiful and elaborate hats as above. I'll probably stick to smaller things like hair pins first! Although I would love to take a millinery course... (if I ever live in New York, the first thing I'll do is save up for the millinery course at FIT that Gertie's taking!). I've started practicing embroidery though, so maybe that's something I can incorporate into hair-accessories...

I found the hat above more recently, so it isn't on my collage, but itsn't it gorgeous? It's from an etsy shop called "Agnes Hart", but unfortunately it's a little above my budget :)
