I was delighted to be invited along to The Great Hat Exhibition 2018 Press Preview Presentation on Tuesday last, if you follow me on social media, you may have guessed I do love to wear a hat! The event was held in PINKO flagship store, Knightsbridge, so location wise it was stunning. The area and the store itself had me in awe.
The Press Presentation showcased 32 hats designed by milliners from all around the world, with a live presentation. Here are a couple that caught my eye:
Brand/Altelier Name: Julian Garner Headwear
Designer Name: Christopher Julian Garner
Country: United Kingdom
Name of Hat: Fingerprints
Inspired by: United Kingdom. THE WORLD AT THIS TIME.
Brand/Altelier Name: Monique Lee Millinery
Designer Name: Monique Lee Hylands-White
Country: United Kingdom/Taiwan
Name of the Hat: Court of the Myrtles
Inspired by: Spain. Moorish poets described the Alhambra palace as “a pearl set in emeralds”.
The Great Hat Exhibition will be running from 22-28 March at a central London venue next to the British Library and King’s Cross St. Pancras station. 130 Milliners from all around the world will showcase their 200 beautiful creations inspired by a piece of history or culture, or crafted with unique technique or craftsmanship of their nation. There will also be a pop up shop with a further 100 hats on display.
Hope you enjoyed this post, I’d love to hear your thoughts! 🙂
