Why We Love TURBANS

Why We Love Turbans 

 

Other than being one of the most glamorous hair accessories and the easiest cure for a bad hair day that makes you look instantly Glam.!! , bad hair day? (throw your hair in a turban and way you go).. The Turban has quite  a history behind it and while the fashion for the turban was partly borne of necessity in Europe, it became chic and highly worn in the early late 1930s early 1940s when it appeared on the heads of Hollywood icons. such as  Lana Turner who created an iconic image of femme fatale in turban in The Post man always rings twice..( I highly recommend to watch) ,the growing US popularity of South American stars such as Carmen Miranda  also raised the profile of the draped turban as glamour wear – Miranda wore hers in a variety of extreme permutations in her films. The turban really  never lost its glam as it was still a hot accessory straight through into the early 70s when Biba loved a shiny disco turban .

In current time the Turban has made a huge come back as seen on Prada's runway in back in 2007 and a huge turn around in the Pin Up scene , incorporating into  vintage hairstyles.

You can really adapt your own style & character with a classic turban, add a vintage brooch, a feather, the turban can take you from day to night.  

I fell in love with the turban many moons ago , and started experimenting with my own  variation of the 1940s turban creating it into a classic modern day design and using  high quality Dupion silk that I sculptured, I managed to recreate an easy lightweight style that can be worn everyday.
