“I have a real love for the way Stephen’s mind works—there is such happiness in his millinery genius.” – Grace Coddington, from the Foreword
For more than forty years London milliner Stephen Jones has been creating exquisitely crafted hats that have captured the mood of every fashion "moment". Everyone from rock stars to royalty, from Boy George to Diana, Princess of Wales, identified Jones as the milliner who would help them make arresting headlines. STEPHEN JONES: SOUVENIRS explores the origins of Jones’ creativity growing up in Liverpool, to his days at Saint Martin’s School of Art, and to his rise on London’s street fashion scene and then to international runways.
Stephen Jones is considered one of the most important milliners of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. His creative collaborations have included partnerships with designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Rei Kawakubo, John Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Thierry Mugler, and Thom Browne, to name a few.
