The exhibition “The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture” opens tomorrow at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. The opening will include several floor talks and a conversation with British millinery Stephen Jones who will share stories about his 20 years spent designing hats for Dior. Contact the museum for tickets.


While some wonderful Autumn/Winter 2017 are starting to catch my eye, I can’t ignore these wonderful and very summery hats:

Calot draped in seafoam silk mousseline from Fabienne Delvigne
Chic and casual straw hats from California based Gladys Tamez
Striking graphic cocktail hats from Melbourne based Jo Mareen Millinery
Lovely silk abaca trimmed disc with net veil brim from Spanish milliner Biliana Borissova
Classic Tiffany natural straw hat with pink silk roses from Fabienne Delvigne with a matching pink straw clutch

and this wonderful design by Melbourne based Louise MacDonald  with mushroom brim and exquisite flying metallic straw bow.
