Exhibiting at Premiere Classe during Paris Fashion Week

We're delighted to be returning to Premiere Classe, the trade show at Jardin des Tuileries in Paris, 1-4 March 2018. 

Presenting “Two Cities”, the Autumn/Winter 2018/19 collection inspired by exuberant Rococo fashion and hairstyles, and by architectural details around Paris and London. Expanding on this rich inspiration, this year’s collection features tactile  pleating, tailored panelling, sculptural flourishes and feminine button detailing.

We'll be presenting Karen's creative re-interpretations of hat styles such as fedoras, caps and berets - blending design innovation and craftsmanship with everyday elegance.

Now in our 11th year of exhibiting at Paris Fashion Week, we're really looking forward to connecting with our buyers, international contacts and fellow exhibitors. See you there!

Thanks for visiting!

Many thanks to all who came to Cockpit Arts open studios. Our last show of the year is done and dusted, what fun it's been! Thank you for your continued support. Here are a few visuals of the event, including Business Incubation Manager and Hats For Everywoman project participant Imogen Lawry, with her new limited edition Petra cap.

It was a pleasure to be selected by Grant Gibson, editor of Crafts Magazine, for his special showcase during Open Studios. The cap shown is a limited edition men's Windswept Flat Cap, made in collaboration with innovative textile designers Dashing Tweed. The unique tweed is called Urban Check and glows in the dark. Find out more about the showcase on Cockpit Arts' website. The artwork you see in the background is by textile artist Ekta Kaul.

There is still time to order online for Christmas gifts (or a cheeky gift to yourself!). Most hats are made to order and in 90% of cases Karen can send your hat out within 5 days.
