Her Crowning Glory, Celebrating Sixty Years of Fashion in Hats Community exhibition developed in collaboration with Seneca College, Fashion Resource Centre

Saturday, October 13 to Sunday, November 4

Seneca School of Fashion From buttons and bows to feathers and flowers—during her reign Queen Elizabeth II has worn six decades worth of fashionable hats. This special display, developed in collaboration with Seneca College, presents fashionable millinery styles of the sort worn by members of the Royal Family as well as chic women of society from decades past. The Fashion Resource Centre at Seneca College is a collection of more than 10,000 garments and fashion accessories dating from the mid-1800s to present day and is used as a teaching aid for students in Seneca’s fashion programs.
