Mag­nif­i­cent Millinery

Ladies in Racing - - Contents -

With the Spring Rac­ing Car­ni­val be­hind us, the cre­ative milliners of The Hat Box have turned their at­ten­tion to next month’s Magic Mil­lions Car­ni­val be­ing held at the Gold Coast Turf Club. As Jan­uary is the height of sum­mer, owner Dale Ols­son rec­om­mends wear­ing a hat with a wide brim on the big day. She sug­gests a pic­ture hat or a boater as they look so fem­i­nine and flat­ter­ing with this sea­son’s longer or full skirts. How­ever, if at­tend­ing a lunch or high tea in­doors, Dale rec­om­mends a smaller piece like a beret or a pill­box adorned with silk flow­ers and an eye veil or a spec­tac­u­lar feath­ered head­piece. “Sum­mer at the Gold Coast lends it­self to bright colours and eye catch­ing de­signs and the fash­ion­able fil­lies here in Queens­land are not afraid of ei­ther,” Dale said. “We are very fash­ion for­ward and are al­ways pre­pared to try some­thing new.” The Hat Box stocks one-off orig­i­nal head­wear from some of the best milliners in Aus­tralia. The bou­tique, lo­cated on the gallery level of the iconic Bris­bane Ar­cade, is stocked with millinery in a va­ri­ety of colours and styles to suit ev­ery out­fit and oc­ca­sion. Dale ad­vises to pop in be­fore Christ­mas for your Magic Mil­lions head­wear, as the shop will be closed from Christ­mas Eve Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 24th un­til the Satur­day, Jan­uary 2nd. Panama hats from Ecuador make a great Christ­mas present for both men and women and The Hat Box stocks them in sev­eral styles and sizes.
