“I remember the first time I met Stephen Jones – it was in a club, in the Eighties, and I was a student at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and obsessed with my work. The first time I asked him if he would do some hats for me, he just turned, looked at me and said, ‘I don’t think so, dear’” recalls Galliano, with whom Jones has since worked his millinery magic on creations for both John Galliano and Dior collections.
“I am so glad he had a change of heart. Just as I wouldn’t leave the house without a hat, I couldn’t do a show now without Stephen Jones,” Galliano writes in this weekend’s Style magazine. “I am thrilled that Stephen Jones has gathered an exhibition of treasures together for the Victoria & Albert Museum. He conjures up creations that bring Galliano and Dior shows to life, and he is the icing on any collection he touches.”
