Ascot Racecourse and Fenwick – Royal Ascot’s Official Millinery Sponsor – have once again collaborated with some of the world’s most exciting milliners to produce an exclusive 10-piece collection: The Royal Ascot Millinery Collective.
The Royal Ascot Millinery Collective features exclusive designs from Awon Golding, Bundle MacLaren, Vivien Sheriff, Merve Bayindir, Philip Treacy OBE, Millinery Jill, Siana Yewdall, Stephen Jones OBE, Juliette Botterill and LaylaLeigh.
Royal Ascot is a celebration of the best of British fashion and this is reflected each spring in the Royal Ascot Millinery Collective, which provides a platform for established as well as up-and-coming milliners to celebrate innovation and creativity.
To reflect the global support for the Royal Meeting, for the first time ever Ascot has introduced an international designer to the collective. Joining from Australia – a country recognised for its modern, high-quality and diverse range of millinery – is renowned Melbourne-based milliner Millinery Jill.
Juliet Slot, Chief Commercial Officer at Ascot Racecourse, said: “British millinery is some of the finest in the world and Royal Ascot is proud to support emerging, as well as established, design talent. For 2019, we are excited to introduce an international milliner to the Collective for the first time, recognising the global footprint of our sport and Royal Ascot as an important social occasion.
“The five-day Royal Meeting is a showcase of incredible creativity and our annual Royal Ascot Millinery Collective enables us to shine a light on what is an intrinsic part of racing fashion. For a fourth year, we are delighted to have Fenwick as the Official Royal Ascot Millinery Sponsor. Their valuable support continues to raise the profile of millinery and fashion, helping to guide and inspire racegoers with dressing for the summer season.”
Mia Fenwick, Brand and Marketing Director, Fenwick, added: “For over 130 years Fenwick has been passionate in supporting the very best emerging and established millinery from around the world. The exceptional talent and craftsmanship that comes from this collaboration enables us to celebrate British style and spirit in a truly extraordinary way. We are very proud to again partner with Ascot to curate and the Royal Ascot Millinery Collective, marking a pivotal part of our summer season.”
The Royal Ascot Millinery Collective is available exclusively at Fenwick of Bond Street for a fourth season.
