Well, last night I sat down to watch Made in Chelsea in anticipation of the indulgent ‘Black & White Masquerade Ball’, hosted by Mark Francis. The reason why I was especially excited to see this particular episode is that I had been asked to supply some masks for the show.
As always, the theme of Black & White is a popular choice for Masked Balls as it’s easy to style, always looks fabulous and elegant and even the budget masks can look much more exclusive than normal.
Below is a selection of the masks from the show. Some are limited editions so if they aren’t in stock, please do contact us to see if we can make something similar or order one in for you.

Following the popular T.V series such as Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries, both have recently featured Masked Balls in their storylines, further increasing the popularity of Masquerade Masks.
As you can see from the video below (a clip from last night’s eposide titled ‘Masquerade’), mask styles vary including the more traditional venetian masks, stick masks, feather masks, lace masks and the gorgeous metal filigree ‘Katherine Mask’.
Why Masked Balls? Well quite simply, they invoke a sense of glamour, intrigue, mystery, sexyness and opulence. What more could you ask for at a party?
Masked balls are a perfect theme for a party – perhaps a special occasion such as an important Birthday party or wedding reception and are also great as fund raisers for charities.
Being asked to design a unique mini top hat for a customer is always an honour, so imagine how I felt when I was asked by the gorgeous lingerie brand ‘Myla’ in London, to design a couple of our 7″ mini top hats for their launch party celebrating Myla’s 10 Year Anniversary.
Fashion press, celebrities and royalty gathered last night at Almada in Mayfair for the party whilst four of Myla’s gorgeous models playfully showcased the 10 year limited edition collection in the Myla boudoir, along with the complimentary mini top hats.
Decorated in pearls and lace and diamante with their signature berry coloured feathers, it just goes to show how effective a mini top hat can actually be! To buy Myla’s gorgeous lingerie range, click here
As some of you might be aware, the 1st September, 2010, saw Boris Johnson’s ‘Square Mile Masked Ball‘ being hosted at the Burlington Club to raise money for his charity.
Just over a week before the event, I was asked to create 61 corporate masks for Mont Blanc (who were one of the sponsors at the event) featuring their logo on every mask, and designing individual masks for their main table in a black, white and silver theme. Needless to say, that week was my busiest yet as I also supplied quite a few more masks to some of the other guests.
