English milliner, Stephen Jones OBE, will be a special guest at its English themed Marquee for this year’s Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
Stephen has designed for the Royal family including Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, as well as for celebrities such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Pink, Celine Dion, Dita Von Teese, Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman.
He is considered one of the world's most radical and important milliners of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, having created hats for the catwalk shows of many leading couturiers and fashion designers, such as John Galliano at Dior and Vivienne Westwood.
Attending the Emirates Marquee on Derby Day, Emirates Melbourne Cup Day and Oaks Day, Stephen will be unveiling a show stopping display of iconic headwear from throughout his eclectic and distinguished career.
Stephen will join other notable guests and VIPs in the English-themed Emirates Marquee, enjoying the racing and fashions from the birdcage’s most enviable spot.
