As we transition to winter hats in the Northern Hemisphere and those of you in the Southern Hemisphere get out your summer designs, it struck me this week that quills are one millinery trim that transcend season. So, for a discussion topic to end this week, I’m curious- which royal hats have the most statement-making quills?
For clarifying definition, I turn to millinery feather expert Ian Bennett- a quill is the spine of a feather where all fronds have been removed (if there are fronds still on the feather, the spine is… the spine!).
I can’t wait to see what you all share!
