The Millinery Collective, six alumni from the highly regarded HNC Millinery course will join Yorkshire based dress designer James Steward at the Yorkshire Post Life & Style Fashion Show during Wetherby Races Ladies’ Evening on May 29.
The alumni; Justine Bradley-Hill, Jenny Roberts, Beth Hirst, Claire Spooner, Marie Halewood and Rhian Kempadoo Millar have all gone on to establish successful millinery businesses in Yorkshire after graduating from Leeds College of Art.
Wetherby is the first Ladies evening event of the Summer Race calendar and having the Millinery Collective showcasing their work will enable those wanting to win the best dressed lady more of a chance.
The night will also see the launch of a limited edition Yorkshire flat cap ‘Le Tweed’ celebrating the Grand Depart coming to Yorkshire. The cap, designed and produced by Rhian Kempadoo Millar ‘honours traditional Northern style and adds a cool contemporary twist.’
