Hats – An Anthology by Stephen Jones

May 9, 2010

Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones is the result of a collaboration between London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and one of the world’s foremost milliners, Stephen Jones. Exploring the fascinating world of millinery, the exhibition presents more than 250 hats and iconic headpieces from the V&A’s extensive collection and Jones’ own archive.

The exhibition includes historical items and iconic hats and examines the world of millinery from the inside out, following the life of a hat through the stages of inspiration and creation to the salon and, finally, to the client who gives the hat its ultimate purpose and flourish.

As always with shows at the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, there is an exquisite catalogue accompanying the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until 27 June 2010 and Brisbane is the exclusive Australian venue.
