Hat Over Heels
Launched by Katherine Ferdinand and myself, the project encouraged women to make and decorate their own bespoke hat or headpiece. Whilst it soon became apparent that there were many considerations to be had when designing these tailored pieces, the day also proved to be an inspirational experience for all.
I was moved to see some of the women remove their scarves or wigs for the first time and within minutes feel comfortable in their own beauty. Katherine commented: “The millinery provided a foundation for us to connect, and as the day progressed, I became more inspired by each of the women’s stories. The hidden benefits were the conversations had and connections made. By sharing stories it allowed us all to put our own experiences into perspective, mutually creating an atmosphere of sisterhood”.
