Stephen Jones spearheaded the revival of British millinery in the early 1980s. Using radical materials and daring designs, his exquisite crafted hats encapsulated a modern and compelling mood. Today his era-defining edge continues to attract a celebrity clientele including Kylie Minogue, Gwen Stefani, Dita Von Teese and Madonna. Beautifully illustrated chapters examine the inspiration behind the creation of hats, the history of making, materials and the workroom, the lure of the hat shop and finally the etiquette of hat wearing. The book draws on Jones' unparalleled body of work, the V+A's extensive hat collection and key pieces from international hat collections and design houses.
