Milliners, start your engines! Chapeau master Stephen Jones has teamed with British Vogue and Talenthouse on a design contest that’s tops. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Create a one-of-a-kind, spectacular hat and then submit a photograph or illustration of it to the contest website. The winning design will be featured in the V&A exhibition “Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones,” which opens at New York’s Bard Graduate Center on September 15. In addition to the honor of having his or her hat displayed alongside toppers ranging from a twelfth-century Egyptian fez to dyed and feathered creations by Philip Treacy in the New York show, the winner will receive a two-week internship with Jones in London, tickets to the opening night party for “Hats,” and a signed copy of the exhibition catalogue. “Hats really can be anything and made from anything—just look at Elsa Schiaparelli’s shoe hat,” says Jones, who will select the winner. “This is a great opportunity for designers of all kinds to make something spectacular. Hats are the exclamation mark of an outfit, let’s hope we get some strong statements!” Put on your thinking cap, because Thursday is the last day to enter. The winner will be announced on August 26.
