Mad about this Hatter

"Stephen Jones & the Accent of Fashion" began its world tour yesterday at the Istanbul Vakko Fashion Centre, and I had the lucky opportunity to see the hats at the opening. Jones's designs are presented in a specially constructed pavilion, with a separate exhibition on how Turkey and the Orient have influenced on his work. The extraordinary designer has topped the fashion scene for three decades, collaborating with greats like Dior, John Galliano, Comme des Garçons, Thierry Mugler, and Azzedine Alaïa. Celebrities have also flocked to his millinery: from Boy George and Beyonce to Princess Diana. And his designs are most extraordinary, both architectural and whimsical, so just about anyone can appreciate Jones's rare talent.

My Blackberry photos don't do the hats justice, but you'll see that their personalities shine through anyway.

  1. Erin O'Connor looks the best in them. Just an opinion.

    The Stephen Jones x CDG fragrance is mesmerizing, too! Get your hands on it...if it's still available.

    Come to think of it, his Minnie Mouse hats for CDG are my fave.
