Violet Peacock has a new address.. No, we haven’t abandoned Houston, although the heat is making it tempting.
No, we have a new online store address, Stanford Row, where you can now purchase Violet Peacock pieces. We haven’t quite managed to move everything in just yet, so mind the boxes, while we unpack and dress the place up a little.
If you haven’t visited Stanford Row yet, take a wander over right now; you will find us down the street, on the right.
Here’s a quick sneak preview of how it looks over there, I tell you, we are totally lowering the tone, but Sshhh, don’t...

The Houston Press today published the next installment in their “100 Creatives in 2013″ series; Violet Peacock!
100 Creatives 2013: Lindsay Halpin, Punk Rock Mad Hatter

Violet Peacock made a new collection for the Houston RAW Final. It was a four piece mini collection, called Elements. Each piece was inspired by one of the four elements. Today was a hard and long, but immensely rewarding day shooting the collection with four amazing models and Simon Gentry at the Photobooth on Montrose.
I have been working extremely hard on pulling together outfits for this shoot. This whole shoot features both headpieces and outfits designed and made by Violet Peacock.
Take a look at my sketches for the looks before they were made.
The couple of early released pics from the shoot...

Today Violet Peacock attended an event at the Photobooth on Montrose involving Two Star Symphony and contemporary dancer, Paola Georgudis.
The event was an awesome mix of dance a great music in intimate surroundings. And of course, there was some great headgear worn by the lady members of the quartet provided by Violet Peacock. These pieces has to be reasonably small, so as not to interfere with the playing of instruments but they looked great.
Why not head over to Two Star Symphony’s website and take a look at their recent music video or pick up some of their music on an album or...

Violet Peacock loves burlesque. We love working with performers of all kinds but the burlesque girls are amazing. The hats we can make for performers are generally very different and more avant garde than we are able to make for general sale. I just wanted to make a post showing showcasing some of the amazing performers, hosts and treaders of the boards that have worn Violet Peacock creations.
