The fighter for women, Alexander McQueen…

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

McQueen is one of the men that are on our side, he is fighting to make women so beautiful that men are too scared to touch. He points out the horrible things that women have to go through like rape, road kill; being puppets etc. He makes women look like warriors! Almost all of his work is dark and unexpected! You will always be surprised. He makes it hard to look at to highlight all the bad things that people are too afraid to admit… I think he is very creative in that way and I have respect for him for doing a favour to women…

Let’s all tip our hats for Alexander McQueen…

He is making women free to be themselves!

Behind the photograph…

Tags

, , , , , , ,

It’s time to get to know the people that are the main foundation of these amazing photographs…

They are the people that freeze a perfect moment forever.

Firstly I’d like to share my comment about the photographer Hedi Slimane…

He looks at the characters themselves and their more secretive side… you want to get to know the persons story behind the picture, to make the story clearer he focuses on black and white pictures.

Second photographer David Sims…

His hat photos are more colourful and he creates a theme that suits the hat the best! I like his creative style he is a really good photographer and his work looks very professional …

Third photographer Sam Haskins…

He likes the shape of the female figure; his work mostly includes the nudity of women to show how beautiful we are. He is very creative in his ideas of the photos. He sees the women as beautiful creatures not just another entertainment with their bodies.

lets tip our hats for these amazing photographers…

The Courrèges André…

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

André have one of the most satisfied styles to look at… His inspiration came from the hope that America gave the world through the first moon landing. André created a space age style that features a really clean and professional look. His futuristic styles are far more advanced and stylish than the idea we have of our future style. I immediately fell in love with André!

Albertus Swanepoel…

Tags

, , , , , ,

His hats are not that outrages, but more simple in a Justin Timberlake way… His hats are more for casual days in the sun. He is the man to go to if you want the straw hat that you need to have this summer. I’m going to be honest, he didn’t catch my eye that much, but for some people he might be the best hat maker…

The Superwoman Maggie Mae…

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Looking for hat designers I do not know about I came across Maggie Mae…. One of few lady hat designers that can actually make it in the hat industry. I was proud. Looking at all the hat designers that stand out for example: Louis Marriete, Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones etc. there were actually a woman who caught my eye. She got the design characteristics of couture, vintage, fabulous women and floral trademarks… I hope Maggie can keep it up and show that women can do what men can!

Let’s tip our hats for Maggie Mae…
