Today we meet William Chambers, 29, a milliner from Glasgow
William Chambers gained a first-class honours degree in textile design at the Scottish College of Textiles in 2002 and set up William Chambers Millinery in 2007. William cites birds and cages as his inspiration, and this is evident in the shape, texture and detailing in his work. William has quickly become a sought-after milliner within Scotland and further afield. He was a nominee in the Scottish Fashion Awards 2008 (Accessory Designer of the Year) and recently featured in The List magazine’s Style Issue as one of “the hottest young designers in the country”, alongside Christopher Kane. In September 2008 he designed hats for Glasgow fashion label Olanic for their Spring/Summer 09 debut collection at London Fashion Week.
