After WWII inexpensive hats were mass produced in factories - they fit poorly and quickly became shabby. Sound familiar? Before that, millinery artists created hats with “good bones” of fine materials - hats worthy of a second life. Each revived vintage hat is stripped of its embellishment, cleaned thoroughly, given a new lining and headband, and then serves as the foundation for a spectacular head-turner. Prices start at $200. Contact Jodie to see if your vintage hat is a candidate.
While studying fashion history I stumbled upon the book, "The Language of Clothes" by Alison Lurie. It forever changed the way I thought about the intended, and sometimes unexpected, signals sent by what we wear. My sculptural objects use the hat as a form to explore the ambiguity of identity and the vagaries of sartorial expression. Prices available upon request.
