VOGUE 180° Milliner Nerida Winter.

Sus­pended an­i­ma­tion. Ideas in mo­tion. Per­haps a #Man­nequinChal­lenge, ex­cept that Nerida Winter is lit­er­ally fly­ing through the air on rig­ging. OMG! By Alison Ve­ness. Styled by Philippa Moroney. Pho­tographed by Hugh Ste­wart.

She is in her own pri­vate Dalí. A touch Sal­vador. Sur­real, yes sur-re­ally. She is the con­juror of ev­ery­thing imag­i­na­tive and the de­signer of a wild kalei­do­scope of heav­enly hats. See, she can even make them crawl del­i­cately across the stu­dio floor dis­guised as spi­ders and make them all dance for us on cue. These hats lead their own lives. They have seen things that some of us can only dream of. Oh, how she has taken us to the races: giddy up, Mel­bourne! Rand­wick! As­cot! Ev­ery­where. The highs, the tri­umphs, the to­tal trip of felt, straw and feath­ers and all the flights of fan­tasy steamed, stitched and plumed into a gor­geous re­al­ity. Bows and boaters. Bunny ears, bal­le­rina-pretty head­bands and berets. She has made us leather birds and lace Min­nie Mouse-style ears. Con­ver­sa­tion starters. Food for fash­ion on the field, nat­u­rally. She has topped us off quite bril­liantly and all with that cheeky smile and pas­sion for cre­at­ing show-stop­pers – the hats that stop a na­tion. The pic­ture that stops the reader. She is quite a sen­sa­tion. We would put money on her as she is a sure bet any day. Horses? It’s all about Nerida’s hats.

Nerida Winter wears a Bal­main jacket and Moschino dress, worn as shirt, both from Myer. Saint Lau­rent shoes, from Miss Louise. Her own pants. Hats and head­pieces, all Nerida Winter, from Myer.
