Have just had a wonderful week working with Rosie Boylan and Cheryl Rounsefell recreating some of the headwear we made for The Great Gatsby. These recreated pieces will feature in an exhibition in New York for Prada in the lead up to the film's premiere.

Am currently working with another Hat Academy member Christine Thompson and also milliner Rick McGill on the headwear for the new show 'King Kong, the musical'. We have a huge amount of work ahead of us, but are up for the challenge.

Welcome to Hat Academy Margaret. Wonderful to have you share your experience in theatre an area I have had little experience except for local theatre which involved multiples of pillboxes or federation hats or newsboys caps but has always been great to get free ticket to the productions. Congrats on your work in Gatsby -what a privilege. We will be promoting it when released !
Feel free to share your hat or headpiece creations, join in or start a hatters discussion and add your info to the My Store panel above. Remember online help is a click away. To begin with Lessons check out our Get Started page. I am looking forward to sharing Millinery techniques, ideas and fashion news with you.
Do share pics of your top hats when appropriate. Punky style sounds challenging!!!
Hat Academy now has a Milliners Directory, find out the best way for customers to find you here.
Good Morning Margaret, I have had an enquiry though Hat Academy for a milliner near Chiswick who could repair a hat. Have no idea what level of repair?? If you can help her I will give you her email address - Thanks Elaine
Thought you might be interested in this link. Shame we will not see the movie until next year...but worth the wait
Thanks for your lovely comment on one of my pieces Margaret and congratulations on being a part of the millinery in 'The Great Gatsby'! :)
I loved this movie and your hats were stunning and fabulous in it. I have friends in theatre and entertainment as well, and I can see an exciting journey ahead, right from knowing the play writers to seeing the finished performances in their entirety. To me, this is a wonderful part of millinery and culture to be involved in, so nice to hear about you!
