ELEGANCE AT THE CASTLE!
Château de Cheverny is hosting its third Hat Festival in May 2022. More information to come.
This is a unique event in the world of fashion that will bring together top French hat designers to exhibit and show off in a fashion show their hats for men and women.
An exhibition-demonstration will be taking place in the Trophy Room. This will be the opportunity to watch the milliners at work.
Highlight of the festival: the hat fashion show*, which always promises to surprise. Straw, sisal, buntal, feathers, flowers and so many more materials are creatively used by the milliners, particularly on the theme of Love, in homage to the recent Garden of Love installed at the castle.
“The Château de Cheverny hat festival is the only one where feminine and masculine hats take part! This event, which goes hand-in-hand with elegance and refinement, will give everyone the opportunity to enter a luxury universe and to adopt it for a weekend. We are proud to support French elegance. The haute-couture reputation of our festival is gaining ground”, explains the Marquise de Vibraye, owner of Château de Cheverny.
A prestigious judging panel including fashion professionals will award the following prizes:
- Elegance prize
- Choice of materials prize
- Know-how prize
- Originality prize
- Modernity prize
- Men’s hat prize
- Love prize
- Château de Cheverny Prize.
Adults who turn up wearing a decorative hat to the fashion show will enjoy a preferential price.
* During the fashion show, the young women will be dressed by the designer Peng Saenpinta.
