Coming in February: HAT-titude: The Milliner in Fashion and Culture


A hat is many things. It can be a utilitarian article of clothing, a sta- tus symbol, or a fashion statement. HAT-titude: The Milliner in Fashion & Culture considers each of these functions while highlighting the incredible skill and artistry behind the envisioning and construction of each hat. Traditional hats, whimsical hats, hats from various points in his- tory and from various cultures will all be on display. Within HAT-titude is a mini-exhibition, One Block, Many Milliners, showcasing the endless artistic possibilities offered by a single, basic hat shape created by members of the Milliners Guild who, in their common interests, are keep- ing the culture of hat-wearing alive. HAT-titude is a colorful and thought- ful survey of the social, cultural and educational history of hats and their makers.
