This headpiece was made exclusively for London Hat Week "The Great Hat exhibition: World garden".
Inspired by the national Argentinian flower of El Ceibo.
"I didn't hesitate to choose the national flower of my country as inspiration for my piece. I always found this Ceibo flower different from all, it has an alien aspect. It always got my attention. I usually like to get out of the ordinary, so I thought it was perfect to have the opportunity to choose this exotic flower that at the same time represents my Country. My piece was transformed during the creation process. I tried different materials and shapes until I was satisfied. It was a challenge. I think it was very helpful to have the flower at hand, to analyze it in all angles rather than in a photo. I disarmed the flower and took into account every detail."
