Hat Designer Justin Smith | euromaxx
I met Justin a few years ago back in London. He was not what I was expecting. He sports a gold tooth, a bristly Dalí-style mustache—both of which make him appear older than his 29 years—some serious tattoos and weighted tribal earrings that drag down his lobes. He trained as a hair-stylist, and was very successful in that business. Ask him where he gets his inspiration and he'll shrug and offer a rather ambiguous answer like..." I don't know, it comes from my brain somewhere".
Justin has with Manish Arora, creating the head-pieces for the AW 2010, and colloborated with Moschino to create a number of hats for the Moschino Ready To Wear collection for Spring 2010.

On the subject of Millinery, if your interested here are some works of two other London based designers, Soren Bach and Piers Atkinson.
