My days as a costumer may be over, but one thing from my past career still matters to me: What’s on my head. I’m not necessarily talking about my hair. On National Hat Day, what’s on my mind is the art and craft of millinery. Why hatmaking? For me, hats provide a sense of nostalgia and a chance to travel back to years gone by. Seeing Kate Middleton with a fascinator or Audrey Hepburn’s wide-brimmed hat in Breakfast at Tiffany‘s instills a sense of romanticism in me. The more I travel, the more I find myself looking for hats. Where exactly have I discovered these sophisticated and whimsical accessories? Follow me as I journey back through former travels and see where I’ve found and worn hats!
