Wedgwood announces Project Tea Cosy with BFC’S Headonism milliners



When the BFC announced their winners for 2014’s Headonism Programme, Glass was rooting for each and every one of the exciting millinery bright sparks from the beginning. It hasn’t taken long for the fabulous four to get started on their first big project in creative alliance with Wedgewood, aptly named, Project Tea Cosy. England’s first and finest name in bone china and porcelain dinnerware has invited the Headonists to devise a unique tea cosy for the modern Wedgwood teapot. Working closely alongside the pioneering Stoke-on-Trent-based pottery team, the hat-makers have drawn on 250 years of heritage and craftsmanship in order to make their own characteristic mark on their one-off chapeau inspired tea cosies.

The newest recipients to join both Emma Yeo and Keely Hunter, Awon Golding and Lizzie McQuade, are sure to shine thanks to this valuable showcasing opportunity, curated by millinery icon Stephen Jones OBE, which will be displayed within the designer showrooms at London Fashion Week. The initiative, which has done wonders for previous winners Aurora Ozma and Piers Atkinson, is gaining momentum at a head-spinning pace, and Sally Warmington, Marketing Director EMEA, is “looking forward to seeing them apply their own design flair and creative skill” just as much as we are during the LFW frivolities next month.
