As you get to know me, you will learn I AM A HAT FANATIC!! Subjects I self-studied in college were cobbling & millinery. Learning the history of these amazing craftsman was far more significant than the LIES of America!!

The first time Philip Treacy collaborated with Alexander McQueen in the early 90s, I knew I found MY MILLINER! Eugenia Kim is for my everyday, but Philip Treacy is for LUXURY LIFE moments.

London is known for ROYAL hat making so, it’s apropos my London Fashion Week reviews begins with A LEGEND in the millinery world.
