Easter Bonnet Party – what the Butler wore

Amassing an enviable industry following, big-wig milliner and accessory designer Fred Butler is hosting an exclusive Bonnet Party in the very fitting setting of the Sanderson Hotel’s courtyard on Tuesday, March 26. Showcasing a selection of whimsical bonnets made by notable designers such Piers Atkinson, Antipodium and Tatty Devine, budding milliners are also encouraged to enter the competition.

The judging panel consists of fashion heavy-weights such as Vogue’s Style Editor Emma Elwick-Bates, internationally acclaimed blogger Susie Lau and stylist Margaret Crow. The carefully chosen winner’s hat will be auctioned on eBay with proceeds going to a worthy cause – the charitable organisation Kids Company.
