We Love Fascinators

Saturday, 11 May 2013  |  prettycool

Now, that word fascinators should send Philip Treacy into a bull like rage at a Spanish bull fight. In last months Grazia magazine it was published that 'Philip Treacy declares fascinators are over: They are no more than headbands with a feather stuck on!'.

The really strange thing is, he's said the same words and declarations so many times. In May 2012 Grazia Daily published an article saying 'Philip Treacy on shopping with Sarah Burton, hating Fascinators, and his JFK grudge'. Watching the Royal Ascot coverage is another real joke, with snobbish remarks from male so-called fashion experts commenting on how hats are more stylish when most of the ones they show are in fact a large fascinator or headpiece, because they don't like the term 'Fascinator'. The so-called fashion experts also love to feature the same designer styles, costing many hundreds of pounds and really can't grasp that the vast majority of ladies visiting Ascot are very normal, middle income, and want to look fab on a realistic budget.

Why can't these designers realise that We Love Fascinators? They feel comfortable and can be easily removed or changed without your hair being left flat on your head. We know this is true, as year on year we at Pretty Cool sell more fascinators every year in the £20 - £30 bracket, and guess what - every year they get bolder and more vivid in colour, proving ladies really want to make a statement and look fantastic at the races, or a wedding, or any other excuse to look and feel great!
