A Hat For The Duchess of Cambridge

All of Los Angeles was frantically abuzz this past July when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid a visit to our town. The Royals were staying at the British Consul-General’s residence in Hancock Park, which coincidentally is just a few short miles from the Bijou Van Ness studio. During the Royal Visit, I gave Her Royal Highness a Bijou Van Ness fascinator as a token of my admiration and in commemoration of Her Royal Highness’ visit to Los Angeles. It was a grand honor and thrill to design and create the couture fascinator.

Recently, I received a letter from British Consul-General Dame Barbara Hay. Her letter states that the Private Secretary to Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge asked her to thank me for the fascinator. She concludes the letter with a personally handwritten note, which says “I wish you much success with your business which seems very promising.” I am truly honored and touched!
