Celia has a tradition of being a hat model for her milliner and hatter friend Fisher at Ascot - a tradition that’s been going on for 12 years now. We met up with Fisher for a fitting before the occasion. Turns out someone dropped out so I was invited by the hat maker to don one of his creations as well. Being a hat designer myself, how could I refuse? Also, I’ve never been to a horse race in my life, but the idea has always appealed to me after all the tales of Henry Chinaski I’ve absorbed.
