I don’t know about you guys but I was simply blown away by last night Downton Abbey’s Grand finale and all the fabulous hats and headwear worn.

The headpieces worn by Rose were simply stunning and I’m totally inspired by all of the gorgeous pieces created for the show.

Here are some of my favourites.. Sadly I couldn’t find any pics of Rose in her gorgeous sparkled headpieces but I’ve managed to find some of my favourites from this season!

This year we have entered the HaTalk Magazines 2014 Competition.

The competition is considered one of the largest hat competitions in the world, with competitors from across the globe presenting their fabulous hats, fascinators and headpieces!

~ Remembering ~

This year marks the centenary of World War I and we join the world in remembering those, throughout history, who sacrificed their lives during times of conflict in order to protect others.

Building on the idea of remembrance, the 2014 HATalk Hat Making Competition will explore the theme of Remembering, in every sense of the word, through the art of hat making.

We are challenging you to create an original hat or headpiece using the concept of Remembering as the starting point for your design. You can be as creative as possible in your interpretation of this theme and there are no restrictions on the materials or techniques that you can use.

Four winners will be chosen by a panel of judges who will specifically be looking for originality of design and theme interpretation as well as quality of workmanship.
