MODERN STREETAGE

antique hat

Millinery refers to hats and other articles sold by a milliner to women, or the profession or business of designing, making, or selling hats, dresses, and hat trim to women. Women would ask a milliner to remake their old clothing into new clothing. A milliner is a hatter who designs, makes, sells or trims hats and dresses. Customers would visit a millinery shop to look at and to buy clothes (children's clothing, shirts, undergarments and caps, for example) Millinery, if taken in a more general sense, also means any acoutrements that are functionally good examples of modern milliners.

The origin of the name is likely the Middle English Milener, as in an inhabitant of Milan or one who deals in items from Milan.

Women's fascinators are a style of millinery: the use of feathers, materials, beads, pearls and crystals to make extravagant to petite fascinators for brides, weddings, christenings, ladies day at the horse races and many other glamorous occasions.

In the book series known as The Hell Of Upper Clentshire, the Millinery is referred to as the elite security force to guard the royal family, known for using their hats as weapons

In the early morning you made me smile....my second smile of the day..after reading a certain e-mail wink...
Great capture of the 'hat-stand'.
I would look like a complete idiot wearing the wool caps...not that I care, warm ears are important, when I saw the B&W picture, the first thought that came in mind, wow...did she play with the electricity..her hat and hair went 'up'...grin
I hope there was less wind in those days...one big blow of the wind and she would have been on top of the roof...
Have a great day...
Chris: I've always liked hats Astrid: in fact I often wear one. I don't think you'd look an idiot at all in one of these!

The woman with the flying saucer on her head looks serious, and she has every right to be just that

With the weather you are having I think she may make a killing
Chris: I'm sure she will sell lots of them Vintage
I shall be wearing my flat cap today as it is blooming cold and it is our monthly book sale day.

Like the picture Sir Tiffo, have a good day
Chris: I wore my flat cap too. Chad wears a top hat

Lol at Astrid! A nice, colourful "streetage" (nice word!)-photo, maybe our "Meistertwiddler" II has completed some colours in order to pep up the 'winterage' (?)? -I never would wear such a Norwegian woolen cap- you should see my little "Jugendstil"-cap, ornated by a woll flower, which is now allover up-to-date again!
In GB -following H.M. and other Royals (see Ascot races!)- I presume- hats, also extravagant- crazy ones, are quite more fashionable than in our country- it is a pity that only a few older ladies use to put on hats (like my mother, a still elegant Madame) for those might flatter/ornate/trim (Oh, Mr. Richard Trim- what a wonderful name you 'wear'!) a face, and the "milliner" is in our language the "Putzmacherin" (putzen = to trim)!
The Victorian lady doesn't look very happy, perhaps suffering from the weight of her hat where a whole flower garden has been planted or birds have just nested!-
You are only talking about ladies, I also like men wearing hats- but that seems to be totally out, and many men are wearing these wool caps like te depictured ones, too- nun ja, it is very cold in these days and elegance should be forgotten!
Chris: I'm sure you look charming in your hat Philine. I have a collection of hats. I might append them to this blog in the coming week so that you might appraise my own sense of style

Why does the women in the small photo have an upturned dustbin lid on her head? Fascinating to see all the hats in the main photo appear to be the same style but a myriad of different colours.
Chris: I wonder if they are hand knitted Alan. If so I expect she spends all summer doing this

Here, Ladies, you can hire a beautiful hat:
http://www.felicity.co.uk/collection.php?category=races
-but the colours green, blue and turquoise might be reserved for H. M., because they are obviously her favourite ones -as I myself have seen in the near at the Brandenburger Gate in Berlin some years ago, she, a rather little Madame, dressed up fully from head to feet in a gentle blue, looked 'amused' whilst friendly smiling at us and some English schoolkids with Union flags in their hands!
Chris: Oh Philine - I have seen your picture and I know you would look wonderful wearing some of these. If I lived in Munster I would rush round with a box of them for you
Lovely composition Chris. Lighting and colours are superb!
Chris: Thank you Richard. Anything to brighten up these winter days!
Very varied collection of hats. Did you buy one? But they are not "hats" in the true sense of the word, are they? Well seen, Chris.
Chris: I didn't buy one Sheila but I stood in admiration of their variety
A colourful shot..and the woman adds the interest here. Well done.
Chris: Thank you Ronald: I think this sort of thing adds to the general sense of wellbeing
A classic market shot Chris, all those colours just waiting to be photographed. Does that other women know a flying saucer has just landed on her headsmile
Chris: I expect the Victorian woman was considered the height of elegance
I'd love to wear a hat like one of these ... the orange yellow and brown one on the far left looks god. But I look so bl**dy stupid in hats.

Chris: I have seen your picture and think you should wear a trilby with the brim turned down

We have a stall selling this sort of thing on our market too, they're very popular.
I've dragged out an old tweed thing to keep the top of my head warm in this chilly weather
Chris: I think you should wear one of these interesting contraptions Ellie
