AND THEY'RE OFF!!
Royal Ascot, Britain’s most valuable horse race meeting began today in England and will continue for the next 5 days. This highly anticipated and revered event attracts many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £5.5milllion in prize money. This 5 day racing spectacle is just as much about socialising, fashion and style as it it about the horses racing! There will be many outrageous, colourful and fabulous hats to be seen over the event…let the spectacular begin!
With the long weekend approaching it's all about relaxation, fun and friends…and a great felt hat of course! We have hand picked 3 styles from our Custom Classics collection, all made by hand, that will have you enjoying a super relaxed stylish weekend, keeping you warm and chic wherever you choose to be.
GET READY!!! Actor model and songwriter GRACE JONES is coming to VIVID Sydney 2015 headlining three exclusive concerts at Modulations at Carriageworks.
She has been an inspiration for many artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Annie Lennox but the real reason we love her is for her HATS!!!!!
The amazing array of materials a milliner uses provides never ending inspiration…it may be a texture, a certain colour or even the shape of an object that can ignite ideas behind the creation of a new headpiece or ideas for a whole collection.
I was on the search for some Macaw feathers for a special millinery commission when I was directed by a feather supplier to a Bird Magazine…
