CIO CIO SAN FASCINATOR


My inspiration for the name of this hat was the main character of one of my favourite operas: Madame Butterfly by Giacomo Puccini.
Sad and tragic love story...full of emotions!!

This is the "Cio Cio San" Fascinator.

A medium, black handcrafted sinamay oval, stunningly adorned with a wonderful composition of handcrafted feather butterflies swirling among curled black sinamay laces and soft black coque feathers.
This colorful headpiece sits happily on a fine black metal headband and is lined with purple felt.
