LFW: Headonism

Noel Stewart

Following on from his great success curating Hats: An Anthology at the V&A, milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones put his curating hat (sorry) back on to bring us Headonism. The exhibition, shown at Somerset house as part of LFW, showcased and celebrated the new wave of emerging London milliners – such as Noel Stewart (above).

Stephen Jones said “Headonism is London in a hatbox. The UK has always produced and trained the world’s most exciting milliners, and the capital is a city that thrives on youth and invention – it’s a perfect cocktail for exciting hat design and a constant source of inspiration both for me, and all those taking part. It has been a lot of fun to work on, and by supporting our young milliners we are creating a legacy for the future of the British hat industry.”

The young milliners taking part included Piers Atkinson, J. Smith Esquire (immediately below), Little Shilpa and Soren Bach (last picture)
