Dress Your Head

Emilliner is excited to announce the opening of  the gallery show "Dress Your Head: An Exhibition of Modern Millinery" at the Art Institute of Indianapolis.

From Sarah Jessica Parker and her vibrant cocktail hats to Aretha’s over the top Inauguration topper, today’s fashionable women are speaking loud and clear: hats are back!

And they’re not your grandmother’s pillbox. Gone are the formalities of the traditional crown and brim. Fresh from across the ocean, Fascinators are the latest British trend to grace the heads of the fashion forward. Other modern, easy to wear shapes make the hat an essential accessory not just special occasion wear. With the fluidity of today’s fashion rules a hat is a chic accessory for everyday.

 Mindful of the great tradition and elegance of millinery’s past, Emily uses new shapes, textures and color to create a truly unique look. From a feathery fascinator to runway couture, this exhibition explores Emilliner’s vision of the modern hat. A hat is an accessory. A disguise. A flirt. A protection. A statement. With today’s anything goes fashion stand out! be confidant! dress your head! 

Exhibit hours at the institute, 3500 Depauw Blvd., are 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The show will run through December 2009.
