Christys’ London, the British hat manufacturer, has appointed the internationally-famous London based milliner Noel Stewart as its first Creative Director.
 
The Royal College of Art graduate has been recruited for his in-depth understanding of the industry and unique ability to create contemporary headwear.
 
Commenting on the appointment, Christys’ London managing director, Steve Clarke, said “Bringing Noel on side as creative director will ensure that Christys’ looks forward with a clear vision and great creativity, whilst not losing touch with our 240 years of British hat making heritage. It’s a very exciting time for Christys’ hats and I can think of no-one better than Noel to guide us creatively on our future journey.”
 
Speaking on his new role in the company, Stewart added “It is a great honour to be involved at this turning point for Christys’. This is a unique opportunity: there are so few hat companies with this kind of heritage so to be a part of the re-birth of an iconic hat brand is really exciting.”
 
Known for taking inspiration from contemporary art and architecture, Stewart has earlier worked with designers like Dai Rees, Stephen Jones, Christian Dior, John Galliano and Louis Vuitton. 
 
Since its inception in 1773, Christys’ London has been manufacturing hats for the police, armed forces, as well as British royals, starting with King George III. The firm offers a wide range of hats for men and women, ranging from traditional to contemporary styles for catwalk collections.
 
The company operates through its standalone boutique at Princes Arcade, London, as well as department stores like Liberty, Harrods, Harvey Nichols, and Brown Thomas in the UK, and Bergdorf Goodman in New York.
