Something from North of the Border

Scottish Designer of the Year 2010, William Chambers was on the wish list, seeing his exciting forward thinking millinery in the Stephen Jones/Vogue competition the guest curator and team were a little worried, would he say yes? The delightful Mr Chambers did indeed say yes.....

Another Scottish designer the team hoped to win over was the Sally-Ann Provan a milliner who creates the most exquisite ribbon trims. Her hats have a sense of whimsy, elegance and create an enigmatic aura around the wearer. The piece to be featured in the exhibition is also featured in the new book Handmade in Britain by  Piyush Suriso  a great honour for The Finishing Touch.
