I saw a programme today where there was a segment about Philip Treacy which served as a reminder of his genius as a milliner. Philip Treacy was born in 1967 in Ireland and started his education with journalism at National College of Art and Design in Dublin. The late Isabella Blow, who was style editor for Tatler helped to launch his career as a milliner and she frequently wore his hats. He has designed for major designers like Alexander McQueen and Valentino. Philip Treacy has a unique view on style and design. His hats are nothing short of magical and works of art.
