The future hat maker, London






What would you say is a good place to learn the art of millinery? My bet would be London, with the tradition of hat makers and hat wearing. Well, apparently, the hat wearing part is more limited to movies, as I learned from Petra, originally from Czech republic, who I met in London and who's been living there and learning how to make hats. Partly studied (a course at St. Martin's), partly experienced (at a millinery business) and partly self-taught (with a collection of books and materials to experiment with), Petra has big dreams. Right now she is mostly creating the so-called "fascinators" (a decorative head piece, like the one she's wearing in the first picture) and I am keeping my fingers crossed for this young lady! You can contact her on her web page Magdalena Millinery, here or like her on Facebook, here :-)

Čo by ste povedali, že je dobré miesto na priučenie sa klobučníckemu remeslu? Ja by som tipla Londýn, so svojou tradíciou majstrov klobučníkov a nosenia klobúkov. S tým nosením to v realite až také horúce vraj nebude, je to viac filmový motív, ako som sa dozvedela od Petry, pôvodom z Českej republiky, ktorú som stretla v Londýne a ktorá tam žije a učí sa robiť klobúky. Čiastočne učením sa (kurzom na St. Martin's), skúsenosťami (praxou v klobučníckej firme) a čiastočne samoštúdiom (a krásnou kolekciou knižiek a materiálov na experimentovanie), Petra má veľké sny. Momentálne najviac tvorí tzv. "fascinátory" (dekoratívne klobúčiko-čelenky, jeden taký má aj na prvom obrázku) a ja tejto mladej dáme držím palce! Kontaktovať ju môžete na jej stránke Magdalena Millinery, aha tu alebo na Facebooku, tu :-)
