Millinery Magic - festive fascinator workshop

Oct '08
Mary Jane Baxter is no ordinary milliner - her hats and headpieces are cleverly crafty.

Back by popular demand, you can join her in using vintage fabrics, buttons and bows, turning everyday trimmings into a seriously stylish fascinator.

Mary Jane loves nothing more than ladders – of the nylon variety that is! In her hands, old tights take on a new life as fabulous flowers, and rags become ruffles. So come along to the Fashion and Textile Museum and learn the tricks of the trade.

You'll make yourself a sparkling little hat that'll be sure to win you a kiss under the mistletoe!

Venue: Fashion and Textile Museum, 83 Bermondsey Street, London, SE1 3XF
Date: 22 November 2008
Time: 10.00am - 2.00pm

Mary Jane Baxter is a thoroughly modern milliner with a love of the past. After working for fifteen years as a journalist, the hat-bug got the better of her and she decided to study millinery professionally. Having trained with hat-maker-to-the-stars Stephen Jones for two years, she set up her own label. Her first collection was was snapped up by Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge and since then she's sold her collection on-line and through one-off boutiques.

She's made hats for dancers and divas, ladies who lunch, girls with hattitude and burlesque belles! Last year, she set up Mary Jane's Mobile Millinery and took hat-making to the road, holding workshops and parties for curious connoisseurs. Now rather than keeping the tricks of the trade to herself she's sharing her secrets with frugal fashionistas everywhere.
