MORE FUN IN THE MILLINERY DEPARTMENT with Richard Nylon and Janice Breen Burns

Wednesday 12 Aug 2015, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Join Richard Nylon in conversation with Janice Breen Burns as they discuss the development of Nylon’s creative practice of being a milliner - from the start of his career, to the making his very first hat through to establishing a distinguished career as a milliner for Melbourne.

What are the nuances that make a milliner and those touches that reflect the distinct personalities of the wearer and the creator? What makes a ‘signature’ work. Get a glimpse to this other world and share in Nylon’s journey with millinery.

JANICE BREEN BURNS is editor of Voxfrock, the fashion and pop culture blogzine she founded in 2013. For 19 years she was a renowned columnist, features writer, news reporter and fashion editor for Melbourne’s Age newspaper as it evolved from print to multi-platform news source.
