Philip Treacy To Fascinate At London Fashion Week!

philip-treacy-returns-to-london-fashion-week-after-12-years.jpg

Fascinator lovers rejoice!

After a 12 year hiatus, milliner Philip Treacy will return to London Fashion Week!

The mad hatter held his last show in 2000, seven years after making his catwalk debut in 1993, when the supers of the 90s were all the rage. Treacy recalls:

"I phoned up Christy Turlington to say that I was having a show and would she do it for me. She agreed and the rest followed on. Naomi Campbell's agent called the next day. Kate Moss complained that I hadn't asked her…. The media went crazy when all those girls did my show and it completely changed perceptions of the hat."

The king of fascinators didn't specify why he decided to get back to his roots, but we certainly aren't complaining.

In fact, we'd like to tip our fancy hat to Philip. Ha!

Treacy's show is scheduled for Sunday, September 16th at 8:45pm and you better believe we'll be watching with bated breath!
