A window into the chaos of my millinery and the paths that I follow to make sense of developing a sustainable venture around hats.
The beautiful man

John's collection was inspired by the idea of incorporating technology into millinery, so LED lights, inks affected by light, beads that show when you need to add sun screen, all with a hint of Fifth Element, Blade Runner and Lady Gaga. John has great fluid and directional ideas in his design work and often runs before he can walk but he will be an inspiring designer who will try new ideas and stretch himself. Arriving with no sewing skills he has traveled very far......
Amy Woollard of Dolly Millinery inspired by the glamour of the 1950's, yet totally contemporary using vintage materials and those that echo the era. Gorgeous hats that could be worn anywhere and for any event whatever age you are. There is a quintessential Englishness to the work mixed with a delicious sprinkle of Hollywood in its heyday.
