Does the hat which Audrey Hepburn wore in the movie "My Fair Lady" fascinate you? Headdresses of different periods through history and from diverse cultures come in all styles and materials. Hats have truly become an artistic fashion accessory in its own right.

"Hats are my passionŠand the more glamorous and ostentatious they are, the more interesting it is to look at the persons wearing them. My hands enable me to construct very detailed and flamboyant pieces for my clients, creating just the right impact they are looking forŦquot; Jay Cheng, the first and only milliner in Hong Kong, was trained in millinery at the London College of Fashion and also under royal milliner Rosy Corey. Her hats and hair pieces include casual fun hats, wedding hair pieces and glamorous stage headdresses. Her creations not only combine interesting fabrics but also show the great taste, skill, love and care that she puts in her work.

During our visit, Jay will give a brief history of hats around the globe and will also show us what it takes to design a hat that is aesthetic, functional, and which can make that perfect fashion statement!
