Hats on!

By June 11, 2012 Events

Last week I went to the exhibition of the final collections by the fashion and millinery students of Kensington and Chelsea college, and yes I am blogging about this because I left pretty much impressed with the so many different styles and designs and the good quality.

As royal celebrations have been going on and horse races and hat events, such as the Royal Ascot and Henley Royal Regatta are on their way, I felt it was a good time for you to see  some of London-based rising haters including Rosanna Gould, Jane Bailey, Carmen Arnander, Mandy Wright and Myriam Lengline.

Rosanna Gould with her Ortho/Graphic collection aims for a mathematical language and geometric shapes, which includes very Lady Gaga look alike hats and a particular one made of acrylic circles with a neon touch.  For sure a collection you couldn’t walk pass by and ignore.

I was also attracted by Carmen Arnander’s collection – original, unique, yet wearable designs, including the one she has on – I would so wear it for any fancy summer event. Margaret O’Connor presented an interesting collection of neon details, as inspired in her time in Peru, she mixes colours and textures to achieve a contrast of neutral with acid brights

More results of this new millenary generation invaded the gallery of the college with dramatic styles of neons, chic, urban, elegant, indian. Great hats!… Check out some of the designs and be amazed by the SO many different inspirations, lot’s of creativity and uniqueness. Congratulations to all of them for the successful results! … Have a fabulous start of the week!
