Barcelona’s Museu sel Disseny (Design Museum) features a wonderful millinery exhibition open from June 17 to October 3 entitled, “Balenciaga. The Elegance of the Hat.” Spanish milliner Cristina De Prada takes us on a tour of the exhibit, showing how these incredible hats were made, their history and notable elements of their design.
Cristina also demonstrates the couture technique used to make a hatpin similar to the one on the green hat featured in the video (a style of which we’ve seen on many past royal hats):
We’ll follow more of Cristina’s tour of this amazing exhibition in coming days.
