Thank you to all my followers and supporters who offer likes and emails everyday to my little bubble of leather and feathers. A tough few months losing my greatest inspiration but with sunshine and love from around the World, I'm getting on with creating madness slowly but surely with a whole lotta feathers and love x

Some of my all time favourite images have landed from UK, heralding our new 'Sticks & Stones' Collection of feather headdress for kids....inspired by kids imagination and play, this collection is as if the kids have found all the pieces themselves and put together their headdress as part of their adventures. Ranging from full tribe leader to adventure princess, these new pieces I hope serve as a starting point for many exotic journeys of the mind.
Photography Collaboration with Steve Law Photography.

We have recently had the pleasure of collaborating on a special project to do with skulls...Skullamor in Port Douglas, Australia gave me the challenge of creating some fun headdress to go with her collection of beautiful bright crazy skulls she creates for her boutique and online store...take a look..... https://www.facebook.com/pages/Skullamour/189630581183125

Getting in the mood for Halloween early as I'm creating some stunning pieces as custom orders so I guess the influence is rubbing off!! My latest Paradise Gypsies shoot enabled me to quickly capture some of these designs properly on film?? (well digital !) before they whisk off to their destinations to awaiting customers. I decided 'Punk with Passion' as the title for this collection...!

Everyday I find inspiration & excitement in my work but seeing the result of my latest photoshoot yesterday, really has gotten me jumping up and down with joy. Viewing my images, the words 'f##king cool' were top of the list. I f##king love them as I love the girl who was the inspiration, designer and model Chrystel Malaika. Creator of stunning leather jackets, bags & clothing, she is to me a Rock Star! Cruising the streets with her cool vibe on her motorbike, she is seen most days with her true style of leather, tattoos, sunglasses and motorbike boots always sporting her collections. She was too good of an inspiration to pass up and yesterday was the day for a great little collaboration! Collection I have named 'Peace, Love & Rock 'n' Roll' mixes both our styles, showcasing both our latest creations. Paradise Gypsies has taken a twist to the Rock & Roll in this collection ..... Who knows where we will go next!!! ; ) See more photos from this lookbook on our website www.paradise-gypsies.com See Chrystel's designs at Misskarama

Inspired by a recent shoot by one of my followers where she painted herself completely with white paint, I took on the idea of whiteness for an impromptu photoshoot displaying my white leather, white feather cowrie shell medium length headdress with my new gorgeous shell and white feather necklace. Playing again with my editing, but I've enjoyed creating these images....

There is certainly something magical about a headdress that rings true with anyone trying one on, from kids to adults. Something is wonderful that even through the Internet where you don't really see your customers, the love has a way of shining through, sent in photographs, words & with great smiles & good times shared....many customers attending EDC and alike, I get to see the good times role and very much appreciate all the kind words and photos sent back x keep enjoying!
