Sara Lowes is the creative passion behind Animalesque and is responsible for designing and handcrafting every piece. The bespoke collection of headdresses have been made exclusively for the Royal Opera House, recreating the magic and romance of classical ballets such as Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Each headdress combines Sara’s own accessories with fabric from the Royal Opera House costume archive, capturing the essence of the onstage performance forever.
A spectacular creation, the Owl headdress pairs feathers and embroidered detail to stunning effect. The teal fabric is accented by printed and stitched details, topped with beautiful feathers, with lining made from The Sleeping Beauty fabric. The final touches are added individually by hand, making this headdress a real work of art.
