Wool Cat



I've been obsessed with Givenchy's Men's Collection for F/W 2011-2012
for a while and more than anything this time around, though I'm quite behind on
the fashion schedule. Ive been drooling over their wool cat hat and i came to a conclusion
that i probably wont have a 2,000 dollar hat in my head any time soon so i decided to
make my knock off version. I found my old High School hat that my dog chewed on
and i decided to revive it. My original idea was to stitch a new layer of this leathery
fabric i found all around the hat and make it look a little beat up but i realized i
wouldn't have enough fabric, so i only covered the front  and painted the rest
with acrylic and cut the out the shape of the ears and stuffed it with the same
material and i have my own Givenchy hat!. i spent nothing since i had all
the supplies from previous little projects, fashion comes from imagination
and creation it can be dirt cheap but its all on how you wear it.
