Cynthia Jones-Bryson is an internationally renowned milliner. Starting in fashion design, Cynthia began a passionate affair with hat making in London, where she studied the art of millinery for two years. Cynthia has now returned to Canberra, designing magnificent headwear for all occasions, with commissioned pieces worn by dignitaries such as the Governor-General of Australia, Ms Quentin Bryce AC CVO.
Hat's Life was a collaborative project with the elegant graphic design crafted by Typeyard Design & Advertising. Typeyard approached Praxis Interactive seeking a modern content management system to power the site. SilverStripe was offered and selected, and once again proved to be a powerful solution for content management while providing ease of use for Cynthia to administer the site.
Many of the features required for the project were provided "out of the box" by SilverStripe, however Praxis altered the content management system to allow for custom menu styles to be chosen for each section of the site. In addition, a news module was added to provide the news updates on the home page, and to maintain an archive of all news articles added to the site.
Next, a gallery module was integrated into the site to provide an attractive gallery of images which are grouped into separate albums, showcasing Cynthia's wonderful range of intricate and beautifully-designed creations.
