You still have time. Stephen Jones' breathtaking hats exhibition will be open at the V&A museum in London till May 31st.

"Drawn from V&A and international collections and ranging in style and period from a 17th-century Puritan’s hat to a 1950s Balenciaga couture piece to hats by Jones and his contemporaries including to the latest creations by young milliners such as Noel Stewart, the exhibition investigates the cultural and historic importance of millinery". from V&A online.

The exhibition is split into four areas: Inspiration, Creation, The Salon and The Clients (amongst which, Audrey Hepburn, Anna Piaggi and Ditta Von Teese).

Hosted at The Porter Gallery, with tickets ranging between £5 for adults and £4 for seniors, students, 12-17 yrs and ES40 Holders. Gift-shop looks interesting too;)
