I asked Philip Treacy…
“What top tip would you give to women wanting to be the best version of themselves?
“A hat is a positive symbol.
A good hat is the ultimate glamour accessory.
A hat can completely change the personality of the wearer, make them stand differently and walk differently.
A hat can make that person feel interesting.
People think sometimes that people who wear hats want to show off.
But human beings, since the beginning of time, have always wanted to embellish themselves. So hats have been around since the year dot.
It’s a human thing to want to dress every part.
Hats are meant to be for everyone.
It’s a very potent part of the body to decorate because, when you meet people for the first time, you are not meeting their foot or their hand or their hip, you are meeting their face.
The purpose is to enhance the features of the face.
It’s also a cheaper alternative to cosmetic surgery!”
