As a designer I just adore creating headgears, all kinds of - the cazier the better. In this respect I can be called a mad hatter :)
And now time for hat couture!

Philip Treacy is one of the masters in this branch of design.

And I just couldn't help myself from putting here something really extraordinary: the headgear by Eiko Ishioka.
Time for some conlusions! What can be worn as a hat? Absolutely everything! There are no wrong solutions, or are they? :)

What I like most about art/design is that it takes things for something else we usually take them for. The best example below; a plastic bag that serves as a Renaissance bonnet.

And at the end, time for illumination! :)
