Awarded British Accessory Designer of the year five times at the British Fashion Awards, he was also awarded an honorary OBE in 2007, for services to the British Fashion Industry.
And just like Alexander McQueen, Treacy's career as a milliner was given a major boost by Isabella Blow, the former editor of Tatler, who wore many of his unique and spectacular creations. Sadly, the world has lost both Alexander McQueen and Isabella Blow, but their contributions to fashion are still as important today - just look at the Royal Wedding! Isabella would have fit right in. To answer any questions you might have, a fascinator is a headpiece, which is also a style of millinery. Philip Treacy makes BOTH hats and fascinators, and you may be surprised to know that you can buy some of his collection online.
