Animalesque Animal Headdresses by Sara Lowes
January 25th, 2017
I’m smitten with these Animalesque Animal Headdresses by Sara Lowes. This London costume and textile designer creates unique, handmade animal headdresses and costume accessories. The pieces are rich with colour, texture and character and made to cherish. I can imagine these headdresses being played with over and over and then displayed on the wall for years to come.
Sara has worked as a costume and embroidery designer for theatre and high end fashion and Animalesque marries her skills and passions, to create these playful and artistic pieces. Her trademark style of illustration, screen-print and embroidery all play a part in the making of these marvels. These are part play wear and part pure art!
Sara uses diverse materials and techniques she picked up along the way during her world travels. Each piece has its own character which is brought to life by the qualities of the fabric, the embellishments, the colour, print and pattern.
Animalesque is based in East London, and these pieces sell worldwide through the Animalesque website shop, and brick and mortar shops. Sara also works on bespoke theatre, dance and fashion commissions.
