Take your hat off to Stephen Jones

As you know, Sarah Hall Consulting was privileged to help launch ‘Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An Exhibition 1973-2011’ at The Bowes Museum in July last year. This was a huge success and as well as achieving national and international media coverage, the exhibition spectacularly increased visitor numbers to the museum, one of the North East’s finest treasures.

Vivienne Westwood is a hard act to follow but hot on her heels (pardon the pun!) the Keeper of Fashion & Textiles Joanna Hashagen has unveiled another big name, this time in hats.

Those who like to finish an outfit will know and love the name Stephen Jones, whose haute couture and ready-to-wear collections have gathered a loyal international following. From high fashion to every day - this man creates the perfect head wear to suit.

The exhibition is called 'From Georgiana to Boy George' and runs at The Bowes Museum from 19 May - 2 September. Sarah Hall Consulting has 2 tickets up for grabs at the launch party from 7.30pm on Friday 18 May. If you'd like to attend (with a guest) and see the amazing milliner himself, please email sarah@sarahhallconsulting.co.uk and a name will be picked out of a hat on Friday 4 May. Best of luck!
