Sydney is freezing and especially for the Broome girl but with Spring Carnival racing fever alive and blooming, excitement and warmth exudes through all the fabulous colour, bubbles and fun.
The Hats by Felicity event held at Surry Hills in Sydney was hosted by Alex Whitby as a pre Spring Carnival get together and an opportunity for me to showcase my collection of headwear to Sydney. This was a sensational afternoon for the 20 women that attended and with 10 sales and three commissions for custom made creations; the afternoon was a complete success.
Apart from the huge thank you to Alex for her fabulous event co-ordination and hospitality (and cake), I also want to divert for a moment and thank Prince William and Kate Middleton, who raised the profile of wedding guest headwear through their Royal wedding extravaganza which was filled with Millinery creations that had the world talking, for all sorts of reasons …
A selection of pieces sold at the Surry Hills event will be donned at Alex’s brother’s English wedding early next year and excitedly, for this wedding I have also been commissioned to custom make the Mother of the Groom’s fabulous creation for the day.
In the meantime, though, the focus is on Sydney’s Spring Carnival and this group of ladies is heading trackside with their new Hats by Felicity purchases and I can’t wait to see the out and about pics from their day.
