About the Author

Philip Treacy (b. 1967) graduated in 1990 with an MA in Fashion Design from the Royal College of Arts in London. Treacy was discovered by the then style editor of Tatler Isabella Blow. He soon became, and has remained, the milliner of choice for many top fashion designers, including Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, and Valentino. Treacy's unique creations are hand-made to order for the likes of Grace Jones, Victoria Beckham, Madonna, the Duchess of Cambridge, and the daughters of Prince Andrew. He has designed hats for films, including the Harry Potter franchise, and has also developed ranges for high street fashion outlets. Treacy is also the first milliner to have been invited to have his own show during Paris couture week. Treacy is credited with changing the perception of hats and accessories in fashion. Marion Hume is the international fashion editor of The Australian Financial Review. Based between London and Sydney, she contributes on a freelance basis to UK titles including the Financial Times, The Saturday Telegraph Magazine and ST Magazine. In the US, she has been a contributing editor to Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Time Magazine/Style & Design and has contributed as a freelancer to W and The New York Times.


"Here, Treacy provides a deeply personal look at his creative process, his collaborations, and his legendary friendships with such fashion icons as Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen."

"Philip Treacy: Hat Designer pays delightful homage to the work of an artist whose injection of wit and imagination made an anachronistic craft modern again."
-W MAGAZINE "Stunning photographs show Naomi Campbell in a soup can hat inspired by Andy Warhol, Emma Watson topped with a large bird and twig hat from British Harper's Bazaar as well as backstage photos from some of McQueen's well-remembered millinery moments . . . A Philip Treacy hat is instantly recognizable - not only for its design but for the luxurious materials used and sourced from all around the world. Think: exotic feathers from France or high-quality straw from Italy. The Irish-born, British-based designer shows his nationality through his sensibilities too - there's drama, technique, and a long history involved in the genesis of each topper."
-HARPER'S BAZAAR "This showcase shines light on one of the foremost hat designers with an ensemble of eye-catching photographs curated by Treacy himself. Discover more about his collaborations and his personal life with this volume."
-THE SOCIETY DIARIES "Iconic hat designer Philip Treacy isn't known for playing it safe, and his otherworldly creations have earned him a legion of fashion-forward friends and admirers, including Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Daphne Guinness, and the late tastemaker and magazine editor Isabella Blow. In his new book, Philip Treacy: Hat Designer, Treacy shares his influences, his inspiration, and, lucky for us, his designs."
-ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST "Featuring editorial shots by legendary fashion photographers including Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon and Herb Ritts, the luxurious monograph [Philip Treacy: Hat Designer] celebrates Treacy's most fantastical, innovative and iconic creations -- including a bird made of twigs designed for Alexander McQueen, his iconic "ship hat" worn by both Grace Jones and Isabella Blow and a Warhol-inspired fascinator resembling a can of Campbell's soup, modeled by Naomi Campbell."

"Philip Treacy's hats have adorned the heads of everyone and anyone, from Kate Moss to the Duchess of Cornwall, who you might remember married Prince Charles sporting an elegant concoction of pheasant feathers. His new book is a showcase of his work, the people he has designed for and the renowned photographers who captured his creations. . . This book stands as a beautiful and enduring testament to his achievements so far, and is utterly deserving of a place in our perfect library."
