Philip Treacy is one of the world's most famous and influential milliners. Hat maker to top fashion houses, celebrities and international royalty, his unique creations are hand-made feats of craftsmanship. Milliner of choice for designers including Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino and Chanel, Treacy is also the first milliner invited to have his own show during Paris couture week.

Intensely private, Treacy is averse to having outsiders watch him while he works. However, photographer Kevin Davies, close friend of the designer for over 20 years, has documented his unique access to the milliner and his fantastical studio, capturing moments with Treacy on his own, with his muses, or fitting his iconic creations. With over 200 photographs accompanied by anecdotes and insights by both Treacy and Davies, this book reveals the extraordinary world and creative genius of a highly influential figure.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lovely... All the most iconic designs are here."-The Observer

"How did one man change our minds on headgear? Philip Treacy by Kevin Davies celebrates [...] backroom moments of Treacy's career, no less striking than the headpieces he creates... The unseen stories behind all the 'moments'."-The Independent

"An usually revealing insight into the designer's work."-Harper's Bazaar

"Revealing [...] photos of Treacy at work. He looks determined and serious, but he has a kind face and he's never a poseur... In short, this is a cool book about a great guy."-VICE

"The head-topper extraordinaire gets a tip of the cap in the new book... Featuring over 200 images of the milliner's museum-quality lids, including head-turning snaps of mega-fierce singer and Bond villainess Grace Jones."-InStyle

"Inside the pages are 200 intimate pictures covering everything from Treacy's years at 69 Elizabeth Street to the scene backstage at fashion shows to the dignified funeral held for Treacy's beloved Jack Russell terrier, Mr. Pig."-The New York Times Style Magazine blog
