From the birdcage veil to the face mask:
Fabiana Gabellini makes extremely
glamorous an indispensable accessory
The history of the birdcage veil is linked to very important moments of social life, as it was mainly used to cover the face during funerals or on special occasions, where the outfit had to look very nice and the glance had to remain covered or partially veiled. How can we forget the famous movies of the 50s, inspired by the noir novels of the period, in which the dark ladies wore black veils combined with shining jewel brooches…
The birdcage veil gives a mysterious, seductive and daring touch, but it is not suitable for every occasion and can only be worn if the dress matches perfectly with the art of wearing this accessory.
Over the years it has gained importance thanks to its ability to combine charm and elegance. From Givenchy to Dior, we had already seen masks and veils on the catwalks in Paris, in 2019, as the new glamorous detail for the red carpet. Fabiana Gabellini, fashion designer of Haute Couture and Ceremony dresses, knows how to complete an outfit with grace and refinement and, as almost always happens in fashion that aims to “make a virtue out of necessity”, has transformed the indispensable and obligatory face masks into extraordinarily trendy accessories.
Thanks to her unquestionable skills in creating sartorial clothes, Fabiana has created a collection of face masks, non-medical, that can be matched with dresses, using the same precious fabrics as the outfits. The result is amazing because it transforms a useful protective device into a customizable accessory able to blend need and glamour.
Fabiana Gabellini chooses this kind of creative approach allowing her clients to respect the rules without losing their personal style, through original looks by boho chic allure.
The face mask may still seem like an unusual addition to the daily routine but, just as happened with the birdcage veil, this does not mean that our identities should also be hidden. By choosing the right print, the right embroidery, the fabric that best suits our aesthetics and knowing that we are buying an accessory from which we would benefit, wearing one of the countless fashion face masks created by Fabiana Gabellini can become something more than our collective responsibility – it can be a completely new way to express ourselves, our style, our personality. The outifts are completed by the eye-catching leather necklaces, strictly handmade, by designer Monica Art Storti.
