The creator of the Fascinator: Queen Marie Antoinette

The Fascinator era began in the magnificent 18th century. The wife of Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, known for her extravagant lifestyle, really took it to the extreme with her daring headdress. Scarves, pearl necklaces, peacock feathers - almost every fashionable accessory could be found in her ornate tower hairstyles. Even though the term Fascinator was not yet known in Paris at the time, Marie's head creations completely fulfilled the Latin meaning of this headdress: Fascinator is derived from the Latin word for 'enchanting' - fascinare. The literal crowning glory of her headdresses was a sailing ship that seemed to glide along the waves of her hair.

1920s to 1960s - the heyday of the creative Fascinators

Until 1930, in times of burlesque, lavish headdresses with long ostrich feathers and rhinestones played a very special role. A sensational stage performance was almost unthinkable without spectacular fascinators. Today's pin-up icons like Dita von Teese have breathed new life not only into burlesque but also into the fascinator.

By the way, the Fascinator is an elementary part of the whole show and, just like the breast pasties and panties, does not get taken off.

Until the 1960s, it was almost frowned upon for ladies to leave the house without appropriate headgear. Hats of all kinds not only offer protection, but are also a decorative element. Especially the hatmakers of the 40s and 50s were considered very creative and let their imagination run wild with their headwear

Carmen Miranda: the lady in the tutti frutti hat

Carmen Miranda is considered a special style icon of the good old days. The Brazilian enchanted all of America in the 30s and 40s with her incomparable smile, her voice and especially with her individual headdress. She was a trained hatter and always designed and produced all her creations herself. So Carmen Miranda was not only given the title "the brazilian bombshell" but also "the lady in the tutti frutti hat" - fitting to her hit of the same name. Turban fascinators with a sweeping decoration of all kinds of fruits became her trademark. We have deliberately chosen our brand name as a tribute to this extraordinary woman.
