Love affair with hats

Haute couture is having a bit of a love affair with hats. Denim, tulle, leaves, sequins, veiled. Creative adornments for the often neglected head. What began in the middle ages as a decree from the church that a woman's head must be covered, evolved into a full blown profession in the 18th century, known today as Milliners. As we all know, Coco Chanel began her career as a milliner, creating the epic fashion label later on.

I plan to garner inspiration from these delightful surprises.
