130 Milliners from all over the world (Spain, USA, Korea, UK, Ireland, Germany, Australia...30 countries) will showcase their 200 beautiful creations inspired by a piece of history or culture, or crafted with unique technique or craftsmanship of their nation, at a central London venue next to the British Library and King’s Cross St. Pancras station. There will also be a pop-up shop with a further 100 hats on display!
The name of 2018 London Hat Week official exhibition came from the historical event that took place in London in 1851. The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of All Nations or ‘The Great Exhibition’, sometimes referred to as the Crystal Palace Exhibition, was an international exhibition that took place in Hyde Park, London. It was the first in a series of World’s Fairs, exhibitions of culture and industry that became popular in the 19th century, and it was a much-anticipated event. Following the successful ‘21st Century Hat Exhibition’ in 2015 and ‘Milliner x Artisan’ exhibition in 2016, we celebrate world culture heritage in magnificent hat designs at The Great Hat Exhibition in March, 2018.
The exhibition is managed and curated by Monique Lee, founder of X Terrace, a fashion platform tailored to connect creatives in Europe with fast growing fashion companies worldwide. Monique's designs have been featured on more than 200 covers of the most prestigious magazines in the world such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, L’Officiel, and she has also recently become one of the official milliners for Royal Ascot 2018.
