Hats: "An Anthology by Stephen Jones"I saw this exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum, (in London,) and when I heard it was being featured in NY, I had to go back and see it again! This time though, I had a diiferent perspective after having had the amazing opportunity to meet the renowned New Yorker hat designer ROD KEENAN www.rodkeenannewyork.com at his incredible studio in Harlem, walking away with one of his master pieces on my head, (haven't taken it off since!)
Rod's & Stephen's creations are truly inspiring. The exhibit includes pieces made for members of the royal family, as well as for celebrities like Mick Jagger and Sarah Jessica Parker—are on view alongside historical show stoppers. Displaying various mediums and everything from ancient Indian turbans to Darth Vader's black helmet, the collection and the history behind the pieces is extraordinary!
A must see!
