How is authenticity beginning to affect designer's creativity 
 
How a Fashion Style Blogger focuses on the voice of the creative fashion industry?
 
So rise up and empower your style with milliner's creativity.
 
Just do what you feel!
 
When I visited London last September for London Fashion Week SS17, I encouraged myself to be beyond the confort zone and be curious about what kind of new in fashion,rather than simply coming to attend an International fashion event. When it comes to fashion design,I've always believed that it's best to start from the real craft,high-level handmade work, and capture designer's authentic messages.

Headonism is a British Fashion Council's (BFC) designer support initiative curated by Stephen Jones OBE, during London Fashion Week each season.Above all, It is worth mentioning that recipients showcase their innovative collection at an installation during London fashion Week while also receiving mentorship,business support throughout the year.

I do believe that It is very important to be authentic,to dare to challenge people's dress code,to explore new materials and create with passion. Now we should not focus on improving the old but rather on building the new in fashion.This is the reason that I really love how millinery, as a real art of craftsmanship, is making a step forward and hopefully, in the end, begin to adopt original changes in designer's collections.

For me, it is about high-quality materials,contemporary design and love for handmade art. It is a challenge for my way of style to look beyond fashion trends and explore what I really love to wear. Maybe this is a secret voice against conformity and milliners with their passion for hat design,they do know how to stand out of the crowd. 
So rise up and empower your style with milliner's creativity. Just do what you feel! I'll do it !
