Gina Foster is fast becoming a cornerstone of the London millinery scene. How famous are her hats? The Duchess of Cambridge looked to Gina for a customised hat to update her ‘recycled’ outfit for Zara Phillips’s wedding. Her sister Pippa Middleton has been spotted wearing Gina Foster hats to a number of society weddings this autumn and numerous guests at both Royal Weddings completed their outfit with Gina’s hand-made hats and fascinators.
Gina’s 2012 Collection
For 2012 Gina has drawn inspiration from one of the world’s most renowned hat wearers. The Jubilee Collection celebrates HM The Queen’s forthcoming Diamond Jubilee and reflects the mood of fashions of the coronation year, 1952. Named after famous diamonds, the twenty-piece Spring/Summer collection features on-trend coulis shapes, quirky cocktail hats and stunning substantial fascinators made from straw, feathers, flowers and sumptuous silks.
