Matilda Warr of Kokoberi Bespoke Headpieces teaches you in easy stages and with lots of clear pictures how to make a variety of gorgeous fascinators. In detailed video clips she demonstrates all the different techniques, so you can follow exactly how everything is done. Each fascinator is presented on a real model to show how is it worn and how it looks from several angles - a great help when you are trying to choose which fascinator will suit you and your hairstyle. Learn how to make fabric flowers, so you can create your own fascinator designs, not limited by the size and shape of the ready-made flowers you can buy. Most of the materials Matilda uses are readily available, and you don't have to spend a lot of money to achieve a stunning professional finish.
