Mad hatting
I ruined my first hat using it to collect flints by the Thames at Henley Regatta. I was about 8 I think, and in those days the best you could get was a straw bonnet with a flowery headband from Mothercare. I bought my first grown-up hat, a navy blue satin one with a large bow, from C&A for our first family wedding. Then my Aunt introduced me to Ascot, and I discovered competitive hat-wearing. Once you have experienced those chaps with cameras running towards you clicking away, you suddenly lose interest in buying something off-the-shelf from Peter Jones or, dare I say it, La Treacy. I've tried vintage, and one year I bought up the Myths collection of the up-and-coming milliner Alex Hardman at the Chelsea Festival Hat Show. Then I gave in and started learning how to make my own with the help of the fabulous Andrew McDonald. At least now no-one else will have the same hat as me. And I won't have to pay someone a million pounds to make me a pretzel, even if I haven't quite mastered brims yet. So, drum roll, here is my Autumn Collection...
