Mr Treacy explains that Crazy Fascinators have been banned from the Royal Enclosure at the Royal Ascot, which means that if you want to sit with the Queen you must wear a proper hat (like my little gems). He further states that he is "Delighted" because fascinators have become so cheapened that many are no more than a headband with a feather attached with a glue gun.
I do agree with Mr. Tracey, their are millions of cheap fascinators MADE IN CHINA that have flooded the market. I saw one on the TV show Nashville that was pretty much like that, a Sinamay ribbon on a headband with a few feathers. So, for me, I will keep doing what I am doing, making one of a kind, original little confections.
