Art in Hats 2014

--- Information en français ICI ---

Hello!!

We are so proud to announce you that we host one of the most famous artistics events : ART IN HATS 2014


ART IN HATS 2014

After the great success for the première last year ART in HATS – HATS in ART the art and fashion event is back and this this on a higher scale as full sim event:


WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Art and fashion meet in hats. Good hats are art to wear and subsequently many artists love to create fantastic hats. Fashion designers often show an explosion of creativity in hats. Hats turn to fashion with the styling.

The basic idea of the exhibition is to bring designers, artists and photographers together in an art exhibition / sales event by presenting hats built by artists and fashion designers in combination with photos. The photos are meant to be an art shot.

Hats and images are to be sold or are given as freebies. One of a kind pieces are sold in an auction.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Artists, fashion designers, builders are invited to submit their hat creations. Fashion- and art-photographers are invited to submit their scenery taken with a hat. The works can be created and taken by the same person or they apply as designer/photographer-team. There is no submission or participation fee.
