Tues 16th Sept: Nasir Mazhar

Nasir Mazhar presented his millinery via a live interactive event today enabling you get close and really see his incredible head wear. This format was so refreshing, if not a bit scary as you walked around a dimly lit room, serenaded by a Flamenco style Cardinal (?!) accompanied by a Mary Shelley character pianist. The construction of the "hats" was immaculate and each one a masterpiece in its own right within the flow of the collection. I was really pleasantly surprised to see this living and breathing showcase, having expected a static exhibit. Expect to see them cropping up in many of the new seasons editorials!
