(If you are interested in hats, do read this lady's blog. She is from Spain and makes beautiful hats. She is also very talented)
Milliner Stephen Jones once said, when asked what he thought to be an essential gadget: “The thing I use every day is a poupée, a fabric head. I build shapes on it, using any material at all; it can be a piece of velvet or a tissue – anything can look great as a hat”.
|Stephen Jones, brilliant British milliner. Treacy studies under him. He is the real Maestro.|
A milliner told me she has a second-hand poupée from ebay UK that costs her 80 pounds. Well, if you know me, you know that I will pay if that's what I want. And I have learn (the hard way) that you cannot use cheap shit to make hats. I always believe to buy the best I can afford. So I am keeping my fingers cross that Stockman will reply and sell me a poupée online.
