09 Apr Melbourne International Millinery Competition 2021
I am excited to announce that recently Sandy Aslett Milliner (AKA Hats by Sandy A) was chosen as one of the Top 20 Finalists in the Melbourne International Millinery Competition (MIMC2021). The MIMC competition is hosted by The Essential Hat and invites milliners from across the globe to respond to the theme “Little Black Dress”. The idea is that everyone will have their own interpretation of what Little Black Dress means. The entrants design and make a hat to suit the theme. The theme conjured different images for different milliners. Ideas included famous movie stars, the practical, classic member of your wardrobe, short and sparkly, elegantly restrained, gloriously glamorous and the outrageously theatrical.
This year was the fourth year Sandy Aslett had entered the Melbourne International Millinery Competition. Each year she has been chosen as a finalist in the Top 10 or Top 20. This is quite an achievement for a small hat designer/milliner on the Sunshine Coast who has her tranquil studio set up.
Sandy is sharing her design with you and she hopes you enjoy the photos of her designer headwear that she created for this competition.
The little black dress a must have for the sleek & sassy or full and fabulous wardrobe of the strong modern women.
“Night Moves” add mystique and excitement to the frame of the city landscape. Adding hand shaped sinamay origami twists into the design with a jinsin base in colours that evoke the glamour and style of the city at night.
