The International Millinery Exhibition is back again at Burjuman mall and perfectly in-time before the Dubai World Cup horse-racing event on the 25th of March. The exhibition that is running at Burjuman from the 16th – 24th March, features more than 500 fabulous fascinators, hats and headpieces from popular milliners such as Melbourne-based Liza Georgia Millinery, newcomer Australian Cynthia Jones-Bryson, Designs by Christiane and ITAM by King’s Signature.
I had the opportunity to preview some of the gorgeous designs last weekend and here’s sharing my favorite pieces as well as some information on the milliners in case you’d like to get your outfit sorted ahead of the all-important races! Here goes.
Liza Georgia Millinery
Melbourne-based Liza Georgia Millinery, is known for her feminine and exuberant designs, infused with all things glamour. Her designs are well known and always featured in the Design Style Stakes top 10 since 2011.
Liza loves to work with different materials in her designs and creatively manipulates her fabrics to achieve the desired effect. I noticed a lot of use of interesting wave-like patterns in her creations and can be the choice of the young, ambitious woman who likes to pull off eccentric designs.
Cynthia Jones-Bryson Millinery
Cynthia Jones-Bryson is an award-winning milliner, known for her unique style. Winner of the 2015 Emirates Melbourne Cup Millinery Award, her creations are statement pieces for women with a well-honed sense of style who use every occasion to express it.
Cynthia’s handmade creations use unlikely materials to create a work of art. From paper straws to recycled plastic – her creations are for the bold, eco-friendly woman of today.
Designs by Christiane
From: United Kingdom
Designs by Christiane’s unique collection has been described as an explosive collection of feather hats and headpieces. From understated nudes, to neons that help you get spotted from metres away (without looking too over the top) – there’s something in it for every classy fashionista.
Marilena Romeo Millinery
With a passion for hats and glamour, award-winning milliner, Marilena Romeo, has been creating wearable works of art for more than two decades. Stretching the boundaries of millinery with her eclectic style, Marilena’s designs are set to turn heads on race day.
ITAM by King’s Signature
Nigeria’s hottest milliner and millinery mogul, ITAM by King’s Signature, signature style exudes class, mild drama and elegance. With their selection of bridal pieces, hats, fascinators, pillboxes, turbans, hair accessories, pins and boxes, their collection is sure to make a statement on race day.
This collection has a distinct African touch to it with bold, bright colors, feathers and animal inspired designs. Think big, bright and bold – think ITAM!
