I would like to welcome to our blog Flash Floozy and gorgeous headwear. Flash Floozy is owned by the amazing Marie and when I asked her is she would like to write a post for us to put on our blog she was happy to, and we are so pleased to share with this post with you. If you have any questions for Marie then please find her details at the bottom of this post… enjoy! 
 
 
 
1) Can you tell me a bit about what you do?
 
I design and hand make boho and vintage inspired headwear. I make anything from over sized floral crowns and dainty rustic halos through to Gatsby inspired feathered headpieces and glitter headbands. I love old style glitz and glamour from the 1920s and 30s, they really knew how to dress back then. But I also like easy going comfortable, gypsy bohemian and modern convenience and I think this reflects in the kind of product I offer.

2) How did you get into this line of work?



It started as a hobby really. I have always made my own jewellery and when I bought my new sewing machine I started making lace and turban headbands. I suppose it got out of control from there! I’ve always worked in the Fashion Industry but I guess the turning point was losing my job earlier this year, it gave me the push and the time I needed to take my business to the next level. I’m not a natural designer, my background is more sourcing, production and quality so I’ve kind of come at it from a different angle but I feel that this only serves as an even better platform to offer an excellent quality product.

3) I have had a look at your website and you have some beautiful items, Where does your inspiration come from when designing them?

Thank you! Its a cliche but inspiration can literally come from anywhere. I love people watching! It can be something as small as a detail on someone’s jacket, their hairstyle or make up, a building or crumbling doorway. Wild flowers growing out of a wall on the side of the road could turn out to be the starting point for your next design. If I’m watching TV I’m barely following the storyline as I am too busy looking at what everyone is wearing, or checking out the wallpaper or a lamp in the background. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world in my previous career and I think, unknowingly I have gathered most of my inspiration from those travels, especially India and Pakistan where the colours and textures can inspire any project, but the biggest inspiration has got to be receiving amazing feedback from the bride when she tells you how perfect her headpiece was on her wedding day. That’s a real buzz.
