Statement: “Muses & Millinery” illustrates the correlation between fantastic female beauty and the art of millinery.  As one of the most influential fashion accessories in history, millinery practice can be dated back to thousand years ago.  Not  only was it  able  to  reflect  the  style and  culture of a place,  but  it could  also reveal  personal aesthetics. This exhibition, therefore, aims to examine Chinese female beauty and identities by creating six millinery works, which simultaneously represented six stunning ladies over the course of the early 20th century. The designs of the millineries and the notion of “re-imagining” history will be introduced. It is hoped that the audiences’ experiences can be enriched through this innovative approach.
