Excellent book that takes you behind the scenes of probably the top professional milliner in the world. He lets us into his Aladdin's Cave workrooms where he concocts the most extraordinary and exquisite headwear creations. We also get to see the millinery delights created for the catwalk. Philip's hat blocks are beautiful art forms in their own right.
It is fascinating to see the development of Philip's work throughout the years as he continues to take millinery far beyond anything imaginable.
Wonderful photography features throughout by Kevin Davies who was allowed privileged access to the milliner over a long period. This is one of my favourite books and even if you are not a milliner, as I am, you will enjoy the journey.

These aren't the fabulous hat photographs you see of Mr Treacy's hats in magazines but more of a behind the scenes look at the design and work that makes a fabulous hat. With (nearly) 200 photographs this book is wonderful but what's so delightful are the personal notes by Mr Treacy and Mr Davies explaining the story behind the shoot.
My two favourite photographs are one from 1991 for Vogue, when Kevin first met Philip (and rejected by Vogue.) The second is Philip helping Naomi Campbell get ready for her first visit to Ascot.
This is a biography in pictures of one of our most outstanding and inspiring fashion designers.

A very personal and inspirational book about one of the most creative milliners ever. A definite must for anyone the least interested in fashion!

Read about the book in a magazine, have known Philip Treacey since his early days, so had to buy the book, which is excellent.
