"It was very hard to choose from such great entries. Everyone did a great job coming up with imaginative and original pieces however a few did stand out to me for their original concept, overall design, level of skill involved and materials used."

In first place Victoria Henderson with her beige Button Block Headpiece. "I love her use of hand stitched vintage braid and the chic elegance of the overall design. Sometimes less is more."
Victoria will receive a Lockable Hat Box valued at $330 plus three lessons.

In second place Kerry L'anson with her bronze three button headpiece. "I loved the imaginative way that Kerry used her block, layering three pieces to create an original design."

Kerry will receive her favourite hat blocks from Hat Academy Store plus three lessons.

In third place Linda Ford with her Retro Bloom. "I love the use of leather in millinery and Linda really seems to have employed great skill in using this material both in her base & flower. I also love the way she covered her band with tulle as this helps to grip onto the hair and make the hat more secure."
Linda will receive a Cocktail hat block plus three lessons.
