Emirates will be hosting one of the biggest names in millinery at this year’s Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Iconic English Milliner, Stephen Jones OBE, will attend the Emirates Marquee on Derby Day, Emirates Melbourne Cup Day and Oaks Day, to unveil a breathtaking display of iconic headwear from his career. “My selection of headwear, handpicked for display in the Emirates Marquee, really is a fun representation of some of my key pieces, shipped over especially from my workshop in Covent Garden, London,” Jones says.
Jones, who’s considered one of the world’s most influential milliners, has designed for the Royal family including Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, as well as for celebrities such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, and Nicole Kidman. As well as designing for his star-studded clientele, Jones has created hats for the catwalk shows of leading fashion designers including John Galliano and Vivienne Westwood.
