Diary date: Stephen Jones hat exhibition at the V&A Museum
Milliner to the stars, Stephen Jones, will display 300 hats at the Victoria & Albert Museum in a new exhibition. Set to open next February, Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones, will showcase the historical and cultural influence of millinery throughout the ages.
"Since my college days the V&A has been a treasure trove of inspiration," he told WWD. "This exhibition draws on millinery collections worldwide, and is an eclectic and exciting anthology of hats from B.C. to the present day."
The exhibition will run from February 24th to May 10th, 2009. Visit www.vam.ac.uk for more updates.
