Hatastic! will be showing at Miss Vintage Wedding Affair

We are very excited to have Hatastic! showing at the first Miss Vintage Wedding Affair. Chloe's hats are sculptural masterpieces and you will be able to purchase some of her fantastic vintage bridal accessories that anyone would be proud to wear.

Chloë Haywood, designer of Hatastic!, won Young Clothes Show Designer of the Year when she was only 16. She designed and made a simple wraparound skirt from a patchwork of vintage materials found in the attic at home, and adorned it with beads and sequins. Leságe, one of the judges, himself offered her an opportunity to study at his school in Paris at the time.

This love of vintage fabrics, and ‘all things glittery’, is something she has never grown out of, and her desire to rejuvenate and transform the old, unused and unloved, into something strangely beautiful is essentially the ethic of Hatastic!

Hatastic! was founded in March 2009 after Chloë designed and made a few different pieces for herself to wear at the five weddings she was attending  that year, and was then commissioned to make a headpiece for a bride and her two bridesmaids. There was no turning back.

In her first year she won a competition called ‘Fashioning Technology’ where she designed a headpiece using old wires, scart leads and a kettle lid!

Chloe’s’ premiere collection ‘Recreation’ was then launched at Alternative Fashion Week in 2010 - a series of ten headpieces made from old games. She went on to show this at Brighton Fashion Week, and consequently was featured in The Times, Cosmopolitan Magazine and OK Magazine and countless blogs.

Her new collection ‘L’air du temps’ – Spirit of the Times, is another ten piece collection of hats steamed and reworked into shape and then adorned with vintage remnants, jewellery and millinery foliage.

She has already started work on her collection for next year called the Candy Collection, which has already been seen on the likes of Keisha Buchanan launching her solo career after her many years with the Sugarbabes.

Recently nominated as Accessory Designer of the Year, she has also been working on a couple of projects featured in a book called ‘101 Things to Do with Glitter’ (published 2012).

She says her pieces are ‘Elegant, witty and timeless – everything a hat and a woman should be!’

Chloë designs from her workshop at the end of her garden in Surrey.

Whatever a bride’s requirements - civil wedding, reception or social function - Glenmore House’s period setting and personal service can accommodate them.
