An elevator full of YAN HATS

Usually, I'm absolutely not known for being into hats. At all. Even practical reasons like shelter from sun or rain are not really an excuse, there are umbrellas too - which I actually like very very much!!! And, I mean, why should somebody cover their - even if a bit confused or during (often charming) 'bad hair days' - beautiful hair style with a hat? In opposite to a weird hair style - hats often just look somehow ridiculous to me and sometimes seem only like an excuse. Like, wearing some sneakers because they are comfortable and pretending they are cool... ;-)
I like arty headpieces and I totally love the little teasers, like bobby pins, flowers, headbands or little fascinators, but - where's the aesthetic ecstasy in hat wear?

But, to every rule there are exceptions. First has been the perfectly deployed headwear worn by Thea Adora Bauer of DEGENEROTIKA label. And when I saw what Argentinian hat and fascinator stylist Yan Xcess from YAN HATS is creating, I have to admit, I've been convinced finally... :-) So, I could say:

Mostly, I'm not into hats... but I'm addicted to... and
I love YAN HATS!!!

Designer Yan Xcess creates amazing graphics - and gorgeous fascinators & hats

... but somebody uses the elevator for something else...

Breath-taking fascinators reminiscent of cubistic crystals are prepared on the head of a beautiful model here already, and Argentinian photographer and artist Emma Livingston - tired of waiting - took the stairs to capture these beautiful moments with her eyes and camera, too.

Seventh floor

On this floor, there's a YAN HATS Catwalk going on. She's presenting these unbelievable hats for the AW collection 2014 of Argentinian fashion designer Fabián Zitta, who does fashion runways around the world and has represented Argentina in the last New York Fashion Week in October 2013 (YAN HATS made the headpieces for this collection as well). Luckily photographer Emma Livingston - as none of the missing models arrived at the top floor yet - just took the walking way again to shoot this amazing show one floor below instead of waiting. I'm so glad that she made it in time!!! ♥

I love these hats... and what gorgeous dresses, too!!! ♥


So, even though some visitors missed the show, Emma was there and not only the Argentinian press was very thankful for that! YAN HATS appeared in many fashion magazines already, to name just one, in Harper's Bazaar Argentina. This is a cover from La Nacion Revista magazine resulting from today's show...

Sixth floor

Still busy...

In this floor another woman uses the waiting time for posing in a wide-brimmed YAN HAT. She dressed up so fine to attend another fashion show two floors below...

Since, in this floor there's a joint-venture catwalk of YAN HATS & FABIÁN ZITTA Fashion going on, presenting the summer collection 2014. It's already running, so nobody recognizes the troubles at the entrance...


... and it could be filmed undisturbed (^.^):

The top floor still is waiting. Gladly, the models like each other and use the time for chatting on the corridors...

Finally, the models waiting for the elevator made their way up for the shooting by using the stairs, too. Everybody's relieved to meet and so there has to be time for more backstage chats about the stuck elevator and what happened waiting for the others. Then, the shooting can begin...

Ground floor
Too late...

When the elevator door finally opens, other models searching for the rest already got lost in and around the building... The one on the left is stuck somewhere in the stairwell, the one to the right ended up exhausted searching in the YAN HATS Fashion Nightliner... but, don't both look absolutely gorgeous?
