The Designer, Maker:
Fumbalinas: A one-woman operation using an amalgamation of styles to create a range of couture head wear and accessories. Rooted in the fantastical and the flamboyant, a Fumbalinas garment always consists of an elegant edge and a touch of the surreal. Fumbalinas chooses to re-use and recycle objects from the antique, obsolete and every day, breathing new life into old curiosities as she weaves them into the intricate designs of her collections. As well as her own seasonal collections, Jodie creates commissioned pieces for any occasion as well as providing workshops for events, private parties and corporations, the latest event having taken place at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
