Tracy Rose's Hats Off Exhibition

What a busy day I had, running from various press day events from  Nicole Farhi etc,  to  end my evening in  the latest gallery in Fitzrovia, the "Different" Gallery in Percy Street for the Tracy Rose 's retrospective  of 30 years in the industry. Tracy is a milliner famous for her spectacular hats as seen at Royal  Ascot, London Fashion Week  and social events where hats are de rigoeur.
Tracy and her husband Russell Rose where hosting a private view before opening the exhibition to the public, and in this occasion they launched their new much awaited shopping guide " Fashion Fabulous London".
When we've stepped inside the gallery my first thought was that I was inside a rainbow. Rows of colourful hats that have been seen on Tracy 's head were there for everyone to look at. And while sipping  a perfect espresso by Lavazza and biting into a scrumptious little cake by Caffe' Concerto, I've started looking at all these wonders, made out of feathers, ribbons, Swarowsky crystals and colourful fabrics.
Brava Tracy, this pop up exhibition  will run for  only few days and I felt  this exhibition  merited  to be shown at the V&A  museum
