"Elegant in Red" By Lee Duncan
In numerology 6 and 60 are still 6. Elegant in Red" is a side-worn cocktail hat fashioned in the shape of a 6, representing 60 years. I carved the number six for this project . The frame created on the carved block was covered in red suede and trimmed with Swarovski Crystal and horsehair. To support the side hat, I've created a wire crown, wrapped in vintage chenille to support the large crystal diamond atop it. The underside of the hat is black suede, trimmed with a few rows of crystals.
