Philip Treacy is one of the most extraordinary hat and headpiece designers of our time. His handmade creations are a feat of craftsmanship, displaying flair and imagination. He has designed to a wide range of public figures and celebrities including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Joan Collins and members of the British royal family.
He is best known for his gravity defying sculptures and surreal extravagances which have a habit of provoking fashion writers to new adjectival heights. However he has also designed more modest and wearable fascinators and hair combs.
The final illustration shows a selection of sitters wearing similar ornaments and is taken from contemporary sources of the late 20th century.
