I have admired the bizarre yet awe inspiring work of British milliner Philip Treacy for a long time. His immense creativity seems to flow directly into the hats he makes, each one dramatic and stylish in its own unique way.
His creations are not for the faint of heart (nor broke of pocket) but even simply looking at them, you have to appreciate the amount of thought and skill that goes into his pieces.
If you're looking for some less expensive yet dramatic and quirky toppers for your hat collection, I've found a few that might tickle your fancy. (hehe I don't think I've ever used that expression before...and probably never will again.)
