“Jones is a deft conjurer, who can draw whimsy from a hat. Steeped in couture lore and craft, he nevertheless propels his art into the future with his ceaseless invention and thistledown touch.” His genius is to enhance the mystery, allure, and wit of the wearer.””
Born in Cheshire, and schooled in Liverpool, Stephen Jones burst on to the London fashion scene during its explosion of street style in the late seventies. By day, he was a student at St Martins; after dark he was one of that era’s uncompromising style-blazers at the legendary Blitz nightclub – always exquisitely dressed, and always crowned with a striking hat of his own idiosyncratic design.
Each season, Stephen Jones collaborates with the world’s most notable fashion designers to create hats for their collections.
