Floral fascination

Emma Fozard

A highlight in the North West Summer calendar is the RHS Tatton Flower Show. This year I saw it from a slightly different angle as I helped on the Manchester School of Art stand. Two frameless greenhouses supplied by pure greenhouse were decorated with illustrations by different artists and designers over the course of the show.

Thanks to the British Summer, soggy damp visitors looked on intrigued as we were fortunate enough to be cocooned in the greenhouse;  the warmest driest visitors in the show!

It just so happened that Friday was Ladies Day and Cheshire Life's fashion editor Janet Reeder was the judge of the Best Dressed Woman, with BBC's Louise Minchin presenting the awards.

It was great to see so many women getting into the spirit of the occasion-another excuse to dress up and don a hat!

Back on home turf; I'm excited to hear of plans for my neighbouring building, the grade II listed Produce Hall.  The team behind Stockport's infamous Foodie Friday are proposing to animate the Produce Hall with food, drink and entertainment, bringing people to the area to enjoy their offer in the evening and at the weekend. They also want to attract visitors to the Market Place who will stay to explore the surrounding businesses, including all the local pubs, cafes and traders at Stockport Market and not forgetting my very own Market Place Studios!

Emma Fozard Original travels to NYC!

Emma Fozard

The annual dinner for The Headwear Association took place on April 27th at the Loeb Boathouse in New York City's Central Park. Their central mission is, "To promote hats and the headwear industry throughout the world, and to foster goodwill and fellowship among those engaged in the headwear industry."

More than 170 hat-clad guests and models gathered to celebrate the headwear industry with a marvelous dinner, fashion show, industry awards and personal tributes.

Amongst the headwear modelled was one of my latest creations "Arc"; a zebrano headpiece with a metallic silver finish and worn by Georgina Abbot of Atelier Millinery. She was there with Becky Weaver, editor of HatTalk E-magazine and co-organiser of London Hat Week.

Becky Weaver and Georgina Abbot featured in The Hat magazine.

Meanwhile I followed a different hat to Germany in May to be worn at a friend's wedding. Headwear isn't usual at German weddings so I took advantage of my "Englishness" and wore it with pride.
