In-Studio Perspectives

One of the most rewarding hats to make is the turban. It had never gone out of style, but it’s a style that not everyone is comfortable wearing. The fabric draping on the turban is done on the bias. Draping sometimes takes on a life of its own as the material almost comes alive with its unique personality.

I had the pleasure of making a silk turban recently as a custom order. The hat was purchased by a young woman who loves hats, style, and has the confidence to wear it beautifully. Here’s the finished piece.

  1. That piece is gorgeous, Paula. And you’ve explained to me in person how difficult and labor-intensive turbans are to make. Kudos on such a beautiful creation!
    I am fortunate enough to own one of your turbans. That’s a style I wouldn’t normally be attracted to but when I tried on one you had for sale I felt so unique and elegant and sophisticated in it. When I was trying to decide whether to buy it and asked you to model it, it looked so fabulous I knew I had to own it. Not to mention it is unlike any other millinary I had in my vast (thanks to you) hat wardrobe. I highly recommend stepping out of the box and trying a turban. It’s a compliment-magnet for sure!
