I love the variety of designs to browse through on the Fifilabelle website. Fiona’s designs range from simple and elegant to more whimsical, and large, head-turning headdresses. In the artist’s “Fans of Fifilabelle” gallery, she showcases her hats in action, worn by a variety of customers of all ages. Especially adorable are the artist’s small floral creations adorning the heads of babies and young children.

There’s a sense of romance that runs through many of Fiona’s creations, in particular her bridal arrangements. With light, gauzy veils and an emphasis on white and floral accents, each bridal hat is one-of-a-kind, and seems well-suited to both the bride’s outfit, and her face.
