Keely Hunter Millinery showcased her AW/15 Fourth World collection which explores the futurist designs of science-fiction created through a mix of textures and concave shapes aimed to conjure up a sense of portals and unimagined worlds.
Keely was trained in London and worked under various couture designers before establishing her own label. She appeared in numerous fashion publications – including Vogue Germany, Vogue UK, Vogue Italia, Grazia and Wallpaper and was named by Selfridges to be a Bright Young Thing – the first milliner ever chosen for the store’s ‘next big thing’ designer showcase. Here are some of my favourite designs.
For a more avant-garde look, the Block Headpiece, Mirror Saucer and Hexagon Percher definitely stood out!
I am a huge fan of winter warm woolie hats so I fell in love with these Un-spun snood and Casmere Perspex Beanie!
The black faux fur neoprene trapper was so cool too!
AWON GOLDING MILLINERY was another brand that caught my eye!
Awon Golding is a London based milliner drawing on her multicultural heritage (she spent a lot of time in India. Hong Kong and England) to inspire dynamic headpieces.
Creating dramatic silhouettes, with each piece handcrafted in her London studio, her creative talent was recognised by The Honourable Feltmaker’s Guild, when Awon was awarded first prize in its annual millinery competition in 2010. Currently her pieces are being sold in London’s Liberty!
My absolute favourites are felt hats so I immediately fell in love with this Calyx soft two-tone mustard and magenda fedora velour felt hat set off by a mirror-polished trim band.
How stylish is this eye catching diagonal Heath multi-fur cossack headband made from hot pink, natural fox and purple faux fur!
I really liked this Polen statement beret disc that adds glamour to any outfit. Mustard velour felt base and bow with purple faux fur pom pom and gold crystal accents will make you stand out from the crowd!
Finally, Zoe Sherwood! I loved her signature sculptural pieces inspired by nature.
Central St Martin’s offsping – Zoe is a London based head piece and ornament designer who, before graduating worked with the likes of Diane von Funstenberg and her hair ornaments are currently selling at Liberty’s under their “Best of British Talent”.
I am wearing this super cute High Love Band – glamorous and decadent…
How funky is this High Crown Band made of sinamay and millinery wire, hand sculpted into the shape to comfortably fit on the head!
