hats, gifts & the search for new talent

Posted in Competitions, Events, QueensPlaza by brisbane on March 5, 2010

From 27 March until 27 June the Queensland Art Gallery will be the exclusive Australian venue for the spectacular exhibition exploring the art of millinery – Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones.

The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) and one of the world’s foremost milliners, Stephen Jones. More than 250 hats and iconic headpieces will be on display through a fantastical garden where hats will be arranged like decorative floral bouquets.

Inspired by the Hats exhibition, QueensPlaza on the Queen Street Mall are giving away Stephen Jones goodie bags if you spend over $300 in-centre. Plus they have launched their first ever student design competition to discover the next big fashion, hair or beauty talent to come out of Brisbane’s creative industry. There are great prizes to win. The top 20 finalists selected by QueensPlaza will go to a public vote from March 23. For full details visit:

For your own creation by Stephen Jones head into the only Brisbane stockist – The Hat Box, Brisbane Arcade, Queen Street Mall.
