Hats Off!

VFG Member Jonathan Walford of Kickshaw Productions has a new exhibit that just opened at the Oakville Museum. Oakville is a small Canadian town along Lake Ontario, halfway between Toronto and Hamilton.

Explore the most necessary accessory of the 19th & first half of the 20th centuries - the hat. The High Fashions exhibit will unveil the inspiration of the Hat, which has been regarded as a catalyst for social and political change.

High Fashions: Hat History 1770-1970 is running from January 16 - April 16, 2006.

Discuss the exhibit with Jonathan and other members on the
VFG Public Forums.
