An amazing history lesson on making feathered hats. I would love to know what this paste is they use to attach the feathers with. Why we all don't wear hats like this anymore is beyond me.
Brilliant! Alexander Conley Gives an amazing demonstration on making a hat with good old fashioned hatter techniques.
This is a really informative video about selecting the right hat with the Milliner Philip Ian Wright. Whether your a Milliner or a person who loves wearing hats, this is quite informative.
Stephen Jones's hats are exquisite, modern and whimsical. In the video below, you can see one of his assistants in action making one of his famous top hats, embellished with the Union Jack.

While in London this past August (I was taking a personal one-on-one Millinery course with Chloe Scrivener,) I was able to take a Friday off and walk the long lovely route of Porabello Road. What an experience. So much to see, and so many treats. While walking through, I ran across Sara Colacicco, of Sara Tiara Hats, an amazing Hatter.
She was busy attending to other people so I didn't have a chance to stop and talk with her. It wasn't until later when I looked her up on the internet that I read a little bit about her background, and looked further into what she is doing. She creates diverse, one-of-a-kind pieces, using unusual fabrics and accessories, including tweed and cashmere, antique lace and feathers. It's a bit romantic, scottish highlands, fairies, with a 20's flapper vive as well.
