"Recently, I have been very inspired by nature-the shapes, colors and combinations. I observe and then bring my ideas into the studio. This will translate into my color palette, the shapes of the flowers I hand sculpt, the colors of the silk scarves that I dye, and the organic shapes that develop.
I feel inspired by my work, and put tremendous energy into growing and developing as a designer. I also enjoy working with my customers and solving their specific problems. What kind of hat is packable and sun resistant for the South African woman who designs gardens and is always outside? What is an appropriate fascinator for the bride. I spend a great deal of time and effort trying to find the answers to these questions.
My work always begins with excellent materials- the finest cashmere and fur felt, unusual flowers that I make myself, hand dyed silk ribbons and vintage sparkles. I have traveled the world to find these things, and for what I couldn’t find, I learned the processes and created the trims and materials for myself.
The next thing I do in my work is to develop my shapes. I use my own body to determine what looks and feels good. I always search for looks that are striking yet simple. I spend a great deal of time developing fabrications- hand dyeing, embossing and burning my materials until I am satisfied. Each piece, from a simple hand dyed beret to a intricate beaded fascinator, is created, tried on, and looked at many ways, with great care.
I find my clients very inspiring. They often bring me great ideas and specific needs. My customers have showed me that they appreciate all my effort. They visit me from many countries to purchase my products and tell me often that the pieces that they bought from me in the past are still their favorite." Lisa Shaub
