You may remember the Local Talent Katharine Wallinger and her beautiful hats. This talented designer in now in need of your help!
Katharine of Madrugar has entered a competition run by Talent House, to create a hat inspired by the Diamond Jubilee:
“My hat is an updated version of the classic 1950s cocktail hat. Blocked in buckram on a pretty frilly bowl, it is a modern take on the legant headwear stylish ladies would have been wearing when the Queen came to the throne 60 years ago.
I have recently taken up millinery full-time and although blocking on found objects seems to be my trademark, I would love the opportunity to learn more traditional techniques from Dillon Wallwork”
This is Hastings encourages one and all to lend a hand and cast a vote!
