The big tread or The Evolution of the Diva

Portrait of hut designer Fiona Bennett

The melodramatic and baroque swirl crowns fashion designer Fiona Bennett, indulging in overflowing and sophisticated hat finery. It is a hybrid staging.

The wonderful purity of the bleached ostrich feathers meets the ostrich foot as an unembellished reminder of repressed phases of evolution.
