Unique designs from some of Britain and Ireland’s top young milliners will be offered for sale at The Hat Emporium, a pop‐up event to be held in London for the upcoming racing, wedding and event season.
The Hat Emporium will take place in the Salon at the May Fair Hotel from Friday, May 22 until Sunday, May 24 and will feature six milliners who will be in attendance on all three days, offering a selection of ready-to-wear pieces for sale and one-to-one appointments for those wanting bespoke designs to suit special requirements.
Designers taking part include three milliners from the British Fashion Council’s Headonism initiative, Awon Golding, Emma Yeo, and Lizzie McQuade; Grazia Magazine’s 2012 Hat Factor winner, Sophie Beale; 2013 Milliner of the Year at the Irish Fashion Innovation Awards, Martha Lynn; and multiple Best-Dressed winner at UK and Australian racecourses, Lisa Tan.
To complement the selection of innovative headwear, The Hat Emporium will also host exclusive workshops during the event to assist and enhance clients' preparations for special occasions.
These workshops will be free to attend and include "Hairstyling for Hats" , to offer styling tips and tricks for creating beautiful and fuss-free hairdos; "The Styling Stakes", to provide contemporary outfit options for racegoers and wedding guests; and "Racing 101" , to provide racing novices with an expert education, led by Channel 4 Racing Presenter Gina Harding.
The Hat Emporium will be open from 11am - 7pm on May 22nd and 10am - 7pm on May 23rd & 24th.
