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 striking design in silver and white contrasted with turquoise, the Sleeping Beauty Cat Headdress is a feline masterpiece capturing the bewitching ambience of the Royal Opera House. Using fabrics from the Royal Opera House archives and carefully stitched on white cotton, the headdress is finished with a silver satin ribbon tie.
