The British Fashion Council, Stephen Jones OBE and Wedgewood celebrated Headonism Spring Summer 2015 and the launch of Project Tea Cosy with a glamorous reception on the first day of London Fashion Week last Friday.
Headonism, a Stephen Jones curated initiative and exhibition sponsored by Wedgewood and the British Fashion Council, invited milliners Awon Golding, Emma Yeo, Keely Hunter and Lizzie McQuade to showcase their SS15 collections and also create a contemporary and unique tea cosy for a Wedgewood teapot.
Here is what we saw and liked and who we met…

Bold colours, beading, feathers and geometric weaving patterns were inspired by the costuming and artefacts of the Naga tribes of North-East India.

Each headpiece in the collection explores space, both negative and positive. The patterns playfully extend beyond the headpieces onto the wearer, thanks to intricate cut out lattice details casting delicate, lace-like shadows.

Time to try on one of the exquisite headpieces showcased. I have always adored the mysterious nature of the veil, and I believe that this William Chambers fascinator suited my black lace top beautifully.

This utterly elaborate headpiece, part of Stephen Jones’ Hot House SS15 collection, absolutely deserved its own close-up.

I adored Piers Atkinson’s garden theme.

Please tell me everybody can see this little dwarf waving.
Now you can carry a clinging plant on your head.
Wear with attitude.
