Joanna Roberts Millinery was first caught by my eye in 2013 when Christine Spielmann wore a leather hat to Darwin Cup, which talking to Milliners earlier in the week I said, I am not a fan of the medium and still it is not my favorite fabric for hats, but the statement that made Christine a winner was the structure, shape and line and the way the construction looked so easy yet would have been very difficult to achieve that result.
A couple of years go by, Christine Spielmann is still winning at Darwin Cup and undoubtedly in a beautiful feminine boater.
Over times I have not been really sold on perspex, although there are so many Milliners using this material and now being mastered. I am totally in love with Joanna Roberts Millinery where I think Christine in my eyes should have taken out the highest honour, although that is just in my eyes.
I think Christine's time will come very soon in Fashions on the Field as she is talented and tasteful, knowing what 'Racing Fashion' is; Australian, Innovative and expression. I spoke to Christine about her outfit which was once her favourite 'Camilla' Kaftan, carefully coutured into a Racing Garment. It was striking on her figure and fashion forward without the garish costume theme.
Coming back to Joanna, I was amazed at the 'Boomerang' styled piece that was so beautifully poised on Christine's head. I continue to look, look and look and it is pure perfection where it is molded around here chignon at the back and looks like the piece has been sculpted around Christine's face. This is stunning and you will see the laser work as well which many have been asking me about for both Millinery and Fabric, which below you will see 'Melbourne Laser Cutters'.
I think this is a perfect example of a Milliner who is not hugely known, although looking at her work you can see major triumphs coming her way. Ladies if you are looking for a distinctive piece that will match you, I am confident I can recommend Joanna to you and she may even be getting a call from me in the near future. A Millinery talent to WATCH!
