Chicago Events, Neiman Marcus: Celebrity Couture Milliner Philip Treacy

I’m still compiling info and video from the event, but check out the Interview section and, the file was too large for the site. Also, click to see the full Philip Treacy runway show at Neiman Marcus here.

I’ve been invited to interview Philip Treacy, renown couture hat designer, during his visit to Chicago from the UK.  Breathless!

Mr. Treacy has created his sculptural works of art for Lady Gaga (whom just applied for an internship with him) as well as Sarah Jessica Parker, Madonna, Cher, Goldie Hawn  and British Royalty.  His handmade pieces are visually astonishing, and collaborations have been sought after by top design houses, including Donna Karan, Chanel, Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, Valentino and Helmut Lang.

Save the Dates – Must Attend!

Why is Philip Treacy in Chicago?  He’s participating in the kickoff launch party for the Parkways Foundation annual Garden Party hat luncheon taking place on September 16 in Grant Park.  More on that later.

Neiman Marcus is also bringing Philip in for a two-hour window where he will be signing his creations for anyone that has purchased from his collection.  He has also brought with him a limited number of one-of-a-kind designs will also be available.  This is tomorrow, May 20:



  • Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue
  • Thursday, May 20 from noon to 2 pm
    Fashion Accessories – First Floor

I hope you’ll be able to make it out for this event.
