London's Statues Get a Millinery Makeover Thanks to Hatwalk
Today in London, British milliners flocked to Trafalgar Square for the launch of Hatwalk. Commissioned by the Mayor of London in partnership with BT, Grazia magazine, the British Fashion Council and the London 2012 Festival, Hatwalk sees 20 well-known statues across the capital get adorned with new bespoke headwear. Admiral Lord Nelson, Shakespeare and Queen Victoria are amongst the familiar figures taking part in a catwalk of hats designed by the likes of Philip Treacy and one of Kate Middleton's favourites, Sylvia Fletcher. Speaking about his piece for George IV, Stephen Jones told Grazia: "My hat was the last to go up at 4am and I was so nervous that it would fall apart or fall off! It was so complicated to make it to scale, waterproof and stable." See the heawear here and tell me what you think!
