Mad Hatter

Thankfully, mad hatters still exist in this world. We’ve assembled some of their work here. Now, what do mad hatters do when they all get together? We’ll answer that tomorrow…

• The Philip Treacy Spring 2013 Collection of hats took the art of millinery as far as it can go. Treacy complemented Michael Jackson’s actual outfits with hats that took on a life of their own.

• Zoe Bradley’s Rose Hat is one of a diverse range of headpieces she has created for window displays and editorials, often making paper look as luxurious as leather.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 Collection included extravagant headwear inspired by Aztec warrior armor.

• This Hat by Hatmania is made of golden satin folded into Art Deco style roses.

• Cressida’s Leather Fascinator is layered with gold leaves and petals, while her Sinamay Fascinator creates simple and elegant loops.

• Astrella DeVille’s Cocktail Hat has two Japanese hair ornaments attached to a glittering gold base.

• Brianna Kenyon’s Ombre Hat accents loops of orange red to grey felt with a vintage black button.

• Arturo Rios’ Fascinator places a satin rose and feathers on a beaded headband, all in rich shades of copper and beige.

• Maggie Mowbray’s Cocktail Hat creates a minimal, striking silhouette with a black ostrich feather quill attached to an origami-folded sinamay ball.

• Rebecca’s Pillbox Hat is decorated with yellow felt flowers and a long orange ostrich quill.
