Tribute to Stephen Jones

This is one of my favorite subjects to write about. I wanted to share this, if you have not seen it, you must take a look!

SHOWstudio unveiled a tribute to Stephen Jones, conciding with the opening of the exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. It explores the inspirations along with the key players , including the influence of Cecil Beaton's 1971 exhibition "Fashion: An Anthology" .

Take a look at
Hats Off Stephen Jones!

Inspiration, design, and Jone's millinery are the topics in four short films featuring Stephen Jones, curator Oriole Cullen and set designer Michael Howells. I enjoyed walking through the process of bringing it all together!

Go on a virtual tour using 360° panoramic interactive. For those who can not travel to London to the actual exhibit, you can pretend you are there!

Take a look at some of the wealth of British milinery talent, celebrating the exhibit. With images taken by Clive Booth of the museum's Fashion in Motion event. I loved seeing all the behind-the -scene images.

Then take a look at some of the hats worn by the guests. Some lovely creations, some, what is that! Talk about an assortment of hats!

One can also view the original sketch and blueprints of the exhibition designs by Michael Howell. I enjoyed seeing the actual sketch along with Howell's notes.

I hope you enjoy!!!
