Today, I visited a brilliant little exhibition of hats at London's Selfridges department store. 'Washed up' explores how the ocean and it's contents have influenced some of the most memorable designs in fashion history.
The exhibit includes gorgeous millinery pieces by artists such as Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy, Emma Yeo, Zara Gorman, Justin Smith Esquire and Alexander McQueen (to name a few) which are staged around displays of deadwood and coral.
Don't miss the absolutely awe inspiring exhibits of corals and the sad narrative around their destruction by those who want to own a piece of their beauty.
The exhibition really resonated with me personally as last year I based my summer collection on the beautiful and intricate oceanic drawings and watercolours of Professor Ernst Haeckel.

It was around about this time a few years ago that Isabella Blow, one of the fashions worlds most influential figures, sadly took her life. She will always be remembered for amazingly eccentric style, something which helped propel designers such as Philip Treacy to the top of their game.
