THE CROWN ISSUE

Crown caps, (known as cap-crown or fond de bonnet) was the headdress worn by beautiful women who graced the French court in the 17th and 18th century.  Orginally designed to keep their hair in place, they became a very fashionable accessory for women's dress and an inportant item for the bride's trousseau.

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality.

 

Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. 

 

Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day.

 

Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe.  When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. -
