Marianne Jongkind is a Dutch hat designer with more than 60 years of experience in hat making. She creates couture hats, both under her own name as well as for established fashion designers. Sharing her knowledge of millinery is something she takes very seriously – she is a generous and demanding teacher. All her knowledge is now combined a workroom technique book called ‘Hat Couture’.
The book has been published in English and Dutch and can be enjoyed by everybody interested in hat making, both beginners and experienced hat makers, as all the 22 hat projects are explained step by step with clear photos.
The publishing of this book fulfills a long-life ambition of Marianne Jongkind and has become a reality thanks to the collaboration with milliner and editor of The Hat Magazine, Elly Stemerdink.
We are pleased to have Marianne again with us, after the original presentation was cancelled due to the pandemic in 2020. This will be a unique oportunity to purchase the book or, if you already have it, to have your copy dedicated and signed by her. You will also be able to see first hand some of the hats featured in the book.
There will be an additional presentation on Saturday 15th from 14:00 to 15:00 h at the Hat Days Market.
Attendance is free.
