“GILT”  Suzy O’Rourke with Gala Curios - AW12 Couture Collection

Autumn winter 2012 sees Suzy O’Rourke Millinery immersed in the grandeur and opulence of the Baroque to the decadence of Deco.
The GILT collection takes inspiration from the confrontation of new values with the old, and the hint of fragility and darkness that often lurks behind the glitter.
The GILT collection features lavish gold pieces hand sculpted in intricate guipure and fine Chantilly lace, luxurious velour fur felts and dramatic gold twisted ivy with hand-tooled silk satin petals.
Each piece from the GILT collection has been individually hand-crafted and plated in 24ct gold, which has been applied directly to the textile underneath.
Suzy O’Rourke Millinery called on the expertise of GALA Curios jewellery designer, Jasmine O’Loughlin to undertake this highly technical plating process which allows the texture and lightweight feel of each piece to be retained, while imparting the hats with a lustrous, hard-wearing gold patina.

Autumn Winter 2012 takes pleasure in the excess of GILT.
