“Muses & Millinery” illustrates the correlation between fantastic female beauty and the art of millinery. As one of the most inﬂuential fashion accessories in history, millinery practice can be dated back to thousand years ago. Not only was it able to reﬂect the style and culture of a place, but it could also reveal personal aesthetics. This exhibition, therefore, aims to examine Chinese female beauty and identities by creating six millinery works, which simultaneously represented six stunning ladies over the course of the early 20th century. The designs of the millineries and the notion of “re-imagining” history will be introduced. It is hoped that the audiences’ experiences can be enriched through this innovative approach.
