Historical Hat Show at Hollandview Trail

IMG_0194-1Three enthusiastic staff members of  Hollandview Trail Retirement Residence in Aurora modelled hats for us today as we presented another Retrospective Millinery Fashion Show. The fabulous felt 1960s Christian Dior pictured here made its debut at the show and was well received.IMG_0195

Researcher Deirdre Macdonald was also on hand to experience for herself how audiences respond to an early Lily Jamon number featured in the exhibit. Macdonald is writing a book on the career of this milliner who created hats for the Stratford theatre as well as a number of Canadian socialites.
