Summary "Richard is a milliner who almost sets out not to make a hat". - Kate Rhodes, Curator, Craft Victoria.Enter the whimsical, weird and wonderful world of feather torturer, Richard Nylon, one of Australia's finest and most original milliners. Whether you call his work 'wearable art', sculptural headgear or hats, one thing is certain: Nylon's work defies the notion of the conventional hat.Artists at Work follows Nylon's intriguing creative process as he sets out to make four hats for the prestigious Gallery Parade, the event in Melbourne's Spring Fashion Week where art and fashion collide.Richard Nylon is a one-off. Born and bred in country Victoria, Richard now works in the hub of Melbourne's fashion world. He's a new age dandy with an addiction to experimentation, a trained designer who breaks all the rules. His wide range of hats are as at home in Myer and Melbourne's fashionable boutiques as they are on the catwalk and in the National Gallery of Victoria. Inspired by the natural world - plants, insects, flowers and birds - Richard's hats are breathtakingly ethereal and other-worldly. "Like frozen moments in time" says collaborator and fashion designer, Gwendolynne Burkin. Artists at Work follows Richard on his creative journey as he torments feathers, wire and crinoline all in the name of millinery.
