If you, by any chance, will find yourself visiting New York with in the next few weeks, I strongly suggest to make an effort and visit the "HATtitude: The Milliner In Culture And Couture" Exhibition on display at Arts Westchester. Solo millinery exhibitions are so rare and far in between, especially in contemporary New York - every one of them becomes a spectacular event not to be missed. This particular exhibition features over 150 hats from 40 contemporary milliners and private collections. The key word here is "contemporary", milliners of today as the focal point of the Exhibition. Seeing the layout of so many beautiful designs in one room completely annihilates the last shred of doubt (in case anyone has one) that millinery in the US is alive and well breathing with creativity and talent. This Exhibition puts a spotlight on the hat's global function in cultures worldwide and its position in 20th and 21st century couture fashion. So very excited to have 5 of my designs to be displayed with in the context of the Exhibition!
The images in this post were provided by Arts Westchester and as great as they are, seeing these hats in person is indescribable experience. To me anyway. I love the art of Millinery and events like this one bring tremendous joy to my heart! The Exhibition will be on view until April 12th of 2014. Hope you can make it. :-)
