Functional hats, whimsical hats, hats from bygone eras and from different global cultures will all be on display during this exhibition, examining the hat’s enduring social and artistic significance. Over 160 hats will be featured, created by 40 contemporary milliners, many of whom are sought after by fashionistas around the world. Hands-on workshops and engaging lectures by fashion and art historians will introduce the public of all ages to the art of hat making.
