Philip Treacy Feather Hat, 1995

Hats are like icing on a cake- ornamental and fun!

The Bard Graduate Center in New York City has a current exhibit called Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones and we just had to attend when we heard that feathered hats were to be  featured! This exhibit is a collaboration between the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the hat designer Stephen Jones, and had over 100,000 visitors when in the UK.

There are over 250 hats on display, ranging from an Indian crown made in the 1800s to the original shoe hat by Elsa Schiaparelli.  We were amazed by all the hats, but the ones that incorporated feathers particularly caught our eye!
