Doll Hat Display

This project was part of an exhibition that was put on by the Fashion Institute of Technology's Visual Presentation and Exhibition Design 6th semester students. Each student was assigned a hat and required to design a unique headform to present their hat.

I was assigned a black structured beret with a gold, red, and green ornamental band. The decorative pattern appeared to be influenced by Eastern European or Russian design, which influenced concept of the Matryoshka Doll. The flowers are symbolic of traditional Russian Nesting Dolls whereas the band around her neck matches the ornamental band on the hat itself. This display is entirely hand painted and was on display as part of the Hattitude Exhibition.
