Royal Albert Hall Chapeau

June 1, 2012 by Britex Fabrics 0 comments

The wonderful archivists at award winning British Pathé present another delightful peek into another era with this hat-making clip. Bow tied milliner Monsieur Aage Thaarup made this delightful hat in 1957...and who wouldn’t want to model a Royal Albert Hall shaped chapeau? Sigh! Do you think we could make one shaped like San Francisco’s City Hall?
