BFC Headonism, which supports the UK’s emerging talents in millinery, is curated by milliner extraordinaire Stephen Jones. He said: “I am delighted that Harvy Santos and Sophie Beale are joining Headonism. They are both wonderful milliners, who have a very distinct view on what millinery should be and the talent with which to express it. Our Headonism stalwarts Emma Yeo and Keely Hunter are here creating unusual and avant-garde millinery and are London’s finest.”

Headonism launched in 2009. Participants receive mentoring from Jones and get to show their works through installations at London Fashion Week.

Caroline Rush CBE, CEO of the British Fashion Council, commented: “Headonism is the UK’s leading platform to generate interest and promote Britain's most emerging millinery talent. The platform provides designers with the support, development and champion their unique design aesthetics. It has without a doubt become one of the must see collectives over London Fashion Week.”
