In my quest to create mini-videos featuring handcrafters, whether based in the UAE or international artists, I visited the BurJuman international Millinery Exhibition that was on display at the Bur Juman Centre, opposite Saks Fifth Avenue. The event took place at the end of March 2011. A friend of mine in the UK loves making hats and I hope that someday I will see her millinery brand on display in Dubai.
The exhibition was replete with award winning milliners, some of them being, Valerie Corona, Marilena Romeo, Walter Wright Ltd, Catherine Povey and LBF Trade Limited by Christiane. I had the pleasure of doing a separate interview with some of the new names such as Jacqueline Kolbe (JK Millinery) and John 3v3 Hats by Eme.
Enjoy the videos and do leave your comments!
