AMAZING GRACE

GET READY!!! Actor model and songwriter GRACE JONES is coming to VIVID Sydney 2015 headlining three exclusive concerts at Modulations at Carriageworks.

Millinery Feathers

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.

Size Matters
When it comes to buying a hat getting the perfect fit is one of the most important elements. That gorgeous felt fedora is destined for life inside it's hatbox if the fit is too tight and your Summer straw will stay at home on the hat rack if you know you’ll be spending all of your time at the beach chasing after it.
So before you go ahead with that hat you have your heart set on spend a little time to work out your correct hat size.
