Milliners’ Guild to showcase British millinery at Queen’s Birthday Party in Italy
Milliners’ Guild has been invited by the British Embassy in Italy to showcase British millinery at its Queen’s Birthday Party events in Naples and Rome this June.
The exclusive events will feature an exhibition of work from 12 British milliners, and a talk with demonstration from Milliners’ Guild founder Ani Stafford-Townsend.
Around 3,000 guests are expected to attend the events.
To secure the best that British millinery has to offer, Milliners’ Guild ran a contest open to all milliners hand-making their own work in Britain. The final selection features millinery from some of the most exciting milliners in Britain right now. Some are British born, others are not; all are currently practicing Millinery in Britain today.
Ani Stafford-Townsend, said: “it’s an honour to have been invited to take part in this event, and it really shows how hats are becoming increasingly popular again; especially with the recent Royal Wedding. We’ve been impressed with the submissions we’ve received, and will be delighted to showcase the variety and strength of British milliners”.
