Facing Tradition

Facing Tradition ist das Thema meiner eigens für die Teilnahme an der Great Hat Exhibition 2018 anlässlich London Hat Week kreierten Design-Hüte und Headpieces. Inspiriert wurde ich durch Trachtenhüte meines Heimatlandes Deutschland, z. B. den Bollenhut aus dem Schwarzwald, den Schuehut aus dem Hotzenwald und der Hauben aus dem Dreiländer-Eck der Bodenseeregion (Deutschland, Schweiz und Österreich).
