Exhibition: Head.Wear

Head Wear Item

Hats are barometers of time, style and class, and as fashion objects have the power to condense function and frivolity into one.

They are universal symbols, worn throughout time by different cultures, societies and religions. This exhibition will explore the rich seam of fashion, style, inspiration, craft and technique inherent in hat design through a curated collection of hats drawn from historical collections and contemporary hat collectors.

It aims to demonstrate the importance of the hat as an accessory that has the power to instantly impart a message of authority, affiliation, individuality, propriety and style.
