Have you fallen in love with the fashions in those old black and white movies? Whether it’s a romantic comedy or a love story, the cinematic experience wouldn’t be the same without the attention-grabbing glamourous hats.   492e537416300ffb7a13caceaf8fcb3d

Vintage fashion enthusiasts and fans of the Mobile Millinery Museum presentations now have two hat shows to choose from: our signature Retrospective Millinery Fashion Show (a presentation of historic hats from the Victorian era to the present day) and our newest travelling exhibit of hats “Black Magic”.

While the colour black was historically reserved for mourning, or associated with revolutionaries and intellectuals, ever since Coco Chanel’s little black dress, it has been the emblem of high fashion chic.

Of the over 2500 historical hats in our archive, several hundred are black. Many of these are featured in my book, 1000 Hats. We have selected the best of these beauties for our Black Magic vintage millinery fashion show.
