Such is the case for Nanette Lepore, who has whipped up ensembles for her 13-year-old daughter, Violet Savage, for more than a decade. This year she wanted to be a fairy. That morphed into a swan. “We found the antique headpiece at a flea market in Miami,” says Lepore. “She thought the wings made her look like an angel. Her father decided if we cut them in half, that would make her look like a swan.”
