Millinery in Motion: Stephen Jones
Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.
On Friday, 3 April 2009, tying in with the V&A's exhibition 'Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones', Fashion In Motion presented the work of world famous hat designer Stephen Jones, alongside five of London's the most exciting new milliners.
Hats by Piers Atkinson, Nasir Mazhar, Flora McLean, Justin Smith and Noel Stewart highlighted the ongoing importance of London as a key creative centre for millinery, a trend established in the early 1980s by Jones himself and strengthened by the work of designers such as Philip Treacy.
Each show featured an introduction from Stephen Jones.
