It’s here! The day of the hotly anticipated Grazia Hat Factor has finally arrived, and we are very, very excited. Almost as excited, in fact, as some of the eager milliners who have been queuing outside Grazia HQ since the almost unfeasibly early hour of 4am. Phewf!
Looking surprisingly fresh-faced, the hopeful hat makers are sussing out the competition, readying their pitches and prepping themselves for their sixty seconds in front of our panel, which includes Grazia editor-in-chief Jane Bruton, Grazia style director Paula Reed, and two of Britain’s most respected milliners, Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy.
The first hopefuls have just started making their way up to the judges room, and we'll be bring you updates from both the judges and the entrants as the day progresses. Good luck everyone!
