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.
The vivid hot pink tones of the flamingo and enormous curved beak have been captured in stunning detail by Animalesque. A memorable part of Alice in Wonderland, flamingos are recreated in striking metallic detail using fabric from the Royal Opera House costume archive. This headdress is an explosion of exotic colour which will inspire any child, bringing a sense of dramatic to every day, but looks equally effective displayed as decor within the home.
