A fascinator will always add a touch of elegance to an outfit, marking out the difference from a merely formal occasion to a special event in your life. A Nigel Rayment fascinator has the quintessential pedigree expected from a milliner in London in every jaunty angle and wispy feather.
The fascinator has a long history going back to the 17th Century. Although it fell out of favour in the mid 20th Century it has undergone a resurgence in recent times and now has a very special place in British society. A staple of weddings, it is often worn by the mother of the bride, bridesmaids and other wedding guests. Due to the strict dress code in the Royal Enclosure at Ascot hats and fascinators are deemed necessary for the more distinguished race meetings around the world.
Our hat shop in London has gorgeous range of fascinators which we can pair with your special occasion wear. On our website you can see how a fascinator can perfectly compliment the range of John Charles mother of the bride dresses, as well as the Ian Stuart Neapolitan collection. Using sinamay, organza, silk, tulle and, of course, feathers, each fascinator is a beautifully crafted head piece giving your dress an immaculate finish.
