The Millinery Association, along with the organising committee, are proud to be hosting the Hats off to Adelaide Millinery Convention, it will be an opportunity to celebrate an extraordinary gathering of milliners, masters through to novices, sharing one passion; the art of millinery.
It’s back where it all began! The same organising committee, who gave you the inaugural “ Hats off to Adelaide “ Millinery Convention way back in 2003 and then again in 2005, is going for the hat trick.
To think, back then, that it would grow to what it is today, and the influence it has had on the organisation of other millinery events, not only here in Australia, but all over the world, was unimaginable.
This relatively small, forward thinking, dedicated and enthusiastic group of milliners are hard at it again, determined and committed to giving you the “best ever “ millinery convention in Adelaide in July, 2017.
If you are keen to advance your millinery skills and be motivated and entertained at the same time then make absolutely sure you are in Adelaide in July next year.
The programme will be supported by a magnificent group of tutors of both international and local acclaim, who will ensure coverage of all known aspects of millinery plus a few welcoming surprises.
Also included will be a cocktail party, trade day, tutors challenge (a feature within itself) and a race day grand finale full of thrills and excitement, including Millinery awards and Fashion on the field. Another significant feature is the convention venue; TAFE SA Adelaide City Campus. It is located right in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD thus providing ready access to your accommodation, social events, tram to the Races, and the city’s many boutique restaurants and bars.
We invite anyone, who is interested in the art of millinery, to attend the 2017 “Hats off to Adelaide” Millinery Convention , where you can be assured you will be inspired, revitalized, exhilarated by amazing Millinery Tutors, as well as make lasting friendships , share skills and network with remarkable fellow delegates, and enjoy everything that millinery has to offer. The Trade Day, which is open to the public, will give access to many millinery supplies not readily available in South Australia.
This will be a educational millinery event not to be missed! But not only can you attend this inspirational, innovative millinery experience, you can take in our beautiful city, and all its architecture, art galleries, theatres, shopping, the Adelaide Zoo, the world renown Adelaide Oval, all within walking distance and in the middle or edging the Adelaide CBD.
