Angelica Brigade for Dream Shoot Rentals – Tasha Reversible Headpiece

angelicabrigade demi-couture millinery tiara - kokoshnik - for dark high fashion editorial photo shoot

Here are a few snapshots of one of the headpieces I designed and created for Dream Shoot Rentals.

(I took the photos in front of a few yards novelty fabric that I draped onto a garment rack. It makes quite an interesting backdrop)

I like to create pieces that can be worn in several different ways. For that reason, I decided to embellish both sides of the headpiece.

I always put each of my designs through something I call a snapshot test.

It’s very simple. It involves asking someone to model my design and taking many snapshots of the design from many different angles. That’s the only way I can make sure the piece will look great in photos.

I usually have to perform this test a few times because none of my designs ever pass the test the first time around. Some pieces might look fine in person but might look a little bit unfinished in photos (too empty here, not full enough there, etc).

  • Each part of this headpiece is handmade . . . including the star-shaped chain/ornament.
  • Each bead is hand-stitched . . . each flower is handmade . . . and the hat base is hand-molded.

I currently am not taking any new/incoming orders. I’m not selling any of my pre-made pieces either. However, I’m open for collaborations with other people whose work I find exciting and inspiring.

So, if you want to use this headpiece in your upcoming photo shoot, you can rent it from Dream Shoot Rentals for the fraction of its retail price (which, to be honest, is rather steep for something you can’t wear more than just a few times).

To receive information about Dream Shoot Rentals, their promotions, their new dresses & accessories, etc . . . please sign up for their newsletter.

And, if you are planning to attend the WPPI Expo in March, you can drop by at their booth to see the amazing dresses and accessories created by numerous designers from around the world. The pieces are available for rent right then and there.

Till next week, you guys!!!

How can we create or accomplish things that are much better than what we can ever imagine?

By collaborating with other people who are great at things we aren’t so great at!!!

Who’d ever thought that we can use my knotted chainmaille statement necklace to ornament a French Twist updo?! Denise Empey of Two Tone Umbrella did … I’d never crossed my mind that we can wear this necklace this way …

It was for an Amy Michelson 1920s & 1930s Hollywood Glam stylized bridal gown photo shoot … 3 different models, and 10+ different looks. Here are some behind-the-scenes and alternate angle previews of the photo shoot:

It was held in this amazing hotel in West Hollywood called The London … We couldn’t have been able to secure the place in such a short notice without Natalie Good of A Good Affair Wedding and Event Production

The editorial photos were taken by the talented Award Winning professional photographer – Kristi Klemens (KLK Photography), along with her husband, Paul Bennett (who also is an amazing professional photographer), and lighting expert Efren Beltran
