I had created a number of headpieces for a bridal runway show. Following their debut, they were headed for the recycling pile, until
Anne-Laure saw the potential in them and extended their life in her portrait series.
"I was mesmerized by Lia's creations and thrilled to be able to incorporate them into client shoots. Suddenly everyday women felt like runway models. They recovered their sense of wonder and playfulness in make-believe. Playing dress-up with those made them (re) connect to their femininity, their fun side and it truly empowered them. That is what happens when a hat is more than just a hat."
