She makes the most exquisite headwear and has had her work featured in the book 'Marriage a la Mode'. I was able to purchased the unique headpiece from her and also the sculptural dolls dressed in vintage fabrics and trims.
We both had stands at a vintage textile fair in Honiton, Devon. After writing about the day here, I was asked by several Bloggers if Hesta had a website, which at the time she did not.....
But I am now pleased to announce that Hesta has launched 'Green Glamour' her new website, where her wonderful work can be viewed and ordered.
Hesta contacted me last week and asked if I would mention her website on my blog, which of course I was more than happy to do. What I wasn't expecting was for a gift to arrive from Green Glamour as a thank you!
Inside the fabulous hat box was one of her exclusive woollen 40's style hats that had amounted to Hesta being short-listed for the International Hat Designer of the Year Award last year. You must read the story behind her inspiration for this hat on her website - it's so sweet!
There are 4 amazing headpieces each very different in style, but all recycled from vintage fabrics and treasures.
Wonderful artistry and design.
Hesta also has a range of kits and small accessories for children, including pegdolls of mermaids, pirates, Ruby Red Riding Hood and Peggy Primrose.
Hesta hopes to soon introduce some 'off-the-peg' items to her website, which can be reserved and purchased straight away. I have already added her link to my webshop links page, so you can keep checking back whenever you have a moment, to see what's new.
http://www.green-glamour.co.uk/ I hope that you can find a moment to take a look.
(She lives in an old thatched cottage in Devon with her young family and says that it is difficult to get her work noticed.)
I would like to wish Hesta every success in this new venture!
