HATWALK launches in London

Commissioned by the Mayor of London, in partnership with BT, Grazia magazine, the British Fashion Council and the London 2012 Festival, HATWALK has been unveiled, seeing iconic London statues across the city receiving new headwear. Curated by British milliners, Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy; HATWALK brings together 21 emerging and established designers to showcase British millinery at its best. Today, Trafalgar Square’s statue of Admiral Lord Nelson, received a new hat for first time in 200 years. Lock & Co, the oldest hatters in London, and famed for making Nelson’s original bicorn hat, has created an updated version complete with Olympic torch. Once the display has finished all of the hats will be auctioned off to raise money for the Mayor's Fund for good causes.
