A happy face on a sad world





"Hats are a great antidote to what's going on. It's really their purpose to put a happy face on a sad world."





"That's the thing about hats. They're extravagant and full of humour and allow for a sense of costume, but in a lighthearted way."



Hats by Stephen Jones - milliner to the Royals and to the stars; friend of Boy George and John Galliano; the man who taught Philip Treacy all he knows - who celebrates his 60th birthday today.



A genius.

Stephen Jones OBE (born 31st May 1957)
