When the National Gallery of Victoria rings to acquire a series of your hats, you’d better be ready to take the call. For Australian milliner, Ann Shoebridge, who created her first collection in 2003, the acquisition was circuitous.
An Honours Graduate in Art History, Ann spent many hours studying collections at the National Gallery of Victoria and worked there for one year. So you could say it played a big part in her career. This knowledge and Ann’s love of contemporary art has helped her bring sculpture, colour and light to her collections. Featured here on Stytlehunter.comn.au are her Tokyu collection (acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria) and Mono Daily; a tribute to the slow death of the daily print newspaper.
Ann’s original and delightful headwear has attracted a strong following including a host of celebrities. Firm favourites for Spring Racing Carnival, Ann’s hats have been worn in the finals of Fashions on The Field several times. They have also made their way to international racing events in the Asia Pacific, Europe and America.
In 2013, Ann Shoebridge was the only Australian finalist in The HAT Designer of the Year awarded by UK milliner, Stephen Jones, at ‘Who’s Next’, Premiere Classe , Paris.
Ann also designs a range of unique headwear for brides, again showing her distinctive style and love of sculpture.
