Edwina’s Golden Pirouette,  Royal Ascot style hat was inspired by attributes of strength, structure and balance of the ballerina. The majesty of gold and the detailed beauty of the lace are reminiscent of Russia. These elements bring an opulence and a fine grace to this grand piece. The round cartwheel shape is indicative of a ballet tutu, combined with the strength and structure of ballet poses. Ultimately it is the balance that keeps both the hat and the ballerina elegant and beautiful.
