The millinery workroom or atelier is the creative laboratory where hat designs are transformed from ideas into reality. In the words of Stephen Jones, a milliner’s workroom is “half Aladdin’s cave and half artist’s studio”, a place where each hat is carefully coaxed into being. See one of Stephen Jones’ creations come to life.
