Drawing inspiration from the life of late Michael Jackson, Philip Treacy has managed to recreate Jackson's life in hats. "Mr. Treacy’s challenge was to put together, on female models chosen for their African descent, the outfits from Mr. Jackson’s co-designers, Michael Bush and Dennis Tompkins — and then create for each ensemble a hat to correspond in spirit or to tell the Michael Jackson story." - Suzy Menkes.
The story in hats told on London runway tonight is certain to make History.Each hat is deeply personal, filled with emotion and carefully crafted details - it is impossibly beautiful! I hope you enjoy the images as much as I did. I recommend this article to anyone who is interested in what went into creation of this Collection. My hat is off to you, Mr. Treacy!
