London statutes star in visual spectacular Hatwalk

As part of the visual spectacular that is HATWALK, commissioned by the Mayor of London, in partnership with BT, Grazia magazine, the British Fashion Council (BFC) and the London 2012 Festival, Trafalgar Square’s most famous resident, Admiral Lord Nelson, gets a new hat for the first time in 200 years.

Lock & Co, the oldest hatters in London, established in 1676, and famed for making Nelson’s original bicorn hat, has created an updated version complete with Olympic torch as a nod to a summer like no other in this city. Nelson is one of 20 well-known statues from William Shakespeare to Winston Churchill, currently starring in the millinery extravaganza across the city.

Curated by world renowned British milliners, Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy; HATWALK brings together 21 emerging and established designers to showcase British millinery at its very best.

Culminating in Trafalgar Square, the project celebrates London’s standing as a global capital of millinery, but also emphasises the city’s important and rich heritage by bringing these illustrious but sometimes overlooked statues to life in new exciting ways.

Once the fantastic display has finished all of the hats will be auctioned off to raise money for the Mayor's Fund for good causes.

HATWALK is part of Surprises, which sees pop-up performances and once in a lifetime experiences spring up at locations both familiar and unusual across London throughout this summer like no other.

Other Surprises include SACRILEGE – a life-sized inflatable replica of Stonehenge by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller currently touring throughout London and pop up Shakespeare from the Globe Theatre.

The Mayor of London has commissioned these free cultural events and activities across the capital, as part of Mayor of London Presents, to add to the excitement of the Games and make Londoners and visitors look at and experience the city in a different way.
