This is the hat that won first place in the inaugural Queen's Plate Millinery Design Competition at Woodbine Racetrack, July 6, 2014. I designed and made it. I was a millinery student trained at George Brown College invited to compete and one of the fourteen who were semi-finalists. Judges were local television personality Traci Melchor, Cristina Grossi, Manager of Fashion & Creative Arts from Centre for Continuous Learning, George Brown College, Official Milliner to the Queen's Plate David Dunkley and Bri Mott of Fashion at the Races. The prize was $1,000 and a plaque.
