David Redhead, V& A: You said your stated ambition was to revive - create a bit of a renaissance for the hat. The show' s been open for a month - how' s it going?
Stephen Jones: Incredibly well. We have had, in the first five weeks, about 40,000 people - to Friday Night Late, when it was ' Mad Hatters' , we had 3,500 people to that, that was last Friday. So it' s incredibly popular.
David Redhead, V& A: Is there going to be a renaissance, as Stephen hopes?
Judy Blame: I think there is - it' s a practical thing, it' s a character-driven thing, I think that' s why the English are so good at it. You can really change your character with a hat, you can change your mood, you can hide, you can show off.
David Redhead, V& A: Maybe something like this will encourage more people to think about doing that.
Nasir Mazhar: I think it will. I think with people wearing hats, it will take a while for them to see that actually it' s not really about wearing all those big, stupid hats.
David Redhead, V& A: You' ve just had a look at hats on show at the Millinery in Motion, what did you make of it?
Roksanda Ilincic: I absolutely loved it. I absolutely loved every single one of them. I think it' s so great to see something like this. It really represents London ... just the flambouyancy of London.
David Redhead, V& A: Do you think there' s a chance that we' ll see more hats out there and more adventure in terms of people wearing them?
Roksanda Ilincic: I absolutely hope so. I' m a big fan and I' m always the one wearing them, so why not, let' s have more women doing the same thing.
David Redhead, V& A: What do you think about the impact of Stephen Jones' show here? Stephen' s hoping for a kind of renaissance in hats. Have you noticed a real impact?
Justin Smith: I think in the last couple of years it' s been building, you know. People have been borrowing a lot of hats at editorial, people have been wearing a lot of hats, people feel a lot more confident to be an individual with wearing something. So I think that' s certainly coming about. The more publicity that this kind of exhibition and other things create ... the more people will have confidence to actually get one back on their head because I think that' s the main thing - people have lost the confidence to do it.
David Redhead, V& A: I' ve just been talking to some of the designers back stage and they' re very excited, talking about the possibility of a renaissance in hats. What do you thinK?
Oriole Cullen, V& A: I think it' s quite possible. If Stephen says something very interesting then maybe in history we' ll look back and think, ' Gosh, from the late 20th to the mid 21st century people stopped putting thingson their heads' , but that was kind of a blip in the general story. So who knows?
Sir Christopher Frayling: It' s become a kind of art form, in its own right and gained in confidence. It' s fantastic and it' s all really happened in the last 15 years and it' s something that Brits are very, very good at. Fashion in Motion on a Friday night at the V& A is such fun. You feel it, it makes the place really hip.
