At the Army Flying Museum, there is a fascinating collection of military headwear. Having recently completed a modern cap for the museum’s latest exhibition, I thought I would write about my creative inspiration for their new exhibition which features Military Millinery.

Inspired by the museum’s early pith helmets, through to the evolution of more everyday cap styles, In the Clouds, presents my contemporary interpretation of the Military Millinery brief. The brief was given to a small group of milliners participating in an outreach project at the fascinating The Army Flying Museum located at Middle Wallop, Hampshire, SO20  8FB, where the museum’s exhibits give tantalising insights into the history and development of the modern-day Army Air Corps
