The Crowning Accessory to Royal Ascot Style. We are delighted to bring you our 2021 Royal Ascot Millinery Collective, in association with Fenwick, our Official Royal Ascot Millinery Sponsor. Royal Ascot is, and always has been, synonymous with sartorial elegance. This is upheld by our Royal Ascot Dress Code and annual Style Guide, which invite guests to take inspiration from the summer season’s key trends and contribute to an occasion heralded as a major fashion event in its own right. After a year of uncertainty and lockdowns, this year’s Royal Meeting will truly herald the return of occasionwear when it opens its doors in June as one of the first occasions for more than a year where Britain can get dressed up. Innovative millinery remains the crowning accessory for the Royal Meeting and the Royal Ascot Millinery Collective, now in its sixth year, provides a platform to celebrate the best of British millinery after a challenging year for these artisan designers due to Covid-19. Each designer has a strong affiliation with horse racing and has been integral in launching this beautiful collection with many of the designs drawing inspiration from nature which has been such a welcome retreat for so many over the past year. The ongoing support from Fenwick strengthens the esteemed collection further, thanks to the exceptionally-curated designer fashion and world-class millinery for which this British institute is recognised – you can find all 10 designs stocked exclusively in their Bond Street store. For further information about Royal Ascot 2021, our Dress Codes and the stories behind what makes the Royal Meeting a world like nowhere else, visit ascot.co.uk.

I am delighted with the return of the public to Royal Ascot. It is always the highlight of my summer season and I think we are all eager to dress up in our Royal Ascot finery! My headpiece this year is inspired by English rose gardens, showcasing luxurious fabrics to create a timeless piece that is

quintessentially British.

in an appreciation for everything nature has to offer, especially as many of us would have spent much more time outdoors in the last year. Using traditional straw braid millinery techniques expresses how time moves forwards but traditional skills still play their part in creating something thoroughly modern. This contrast can be applied to Royal Ascot – entrenched in heritage but leading in its showcase of modern fashion. We can’t wait to see hats adorning heads for Royal Ascot in a celebration of everything we have missed in the last year;

fashion, friends, family and celebration.

The return of people to Royal Ascot brings such

incredible joy

– 5 days of exhilarating horse-racing, set against the heavenly backdrop of high fashion hats – our two ultimate passions re-combined and back with a bang!

Our design for 2021 is inspired by nature and a fresh reset of renewed energies. We chose tassels for their softness and fluidity – a form to gently symbolise the natural transition between face masks and

a brighter and more open future.

Philip Treacy OBE Feather Wave, £4,550 Exclusively stocked at Fenwick


I couldn’t be more thrilled about Royal Ascot this year! It is the ultimate marriage of the sport of kings, style, elegance, hats and royalty. Because of this combination it is unique and an important aspect of British identity. My design this year reflects the global circumstances.

It’s dramatic, impactful but hopeful.

Hats are fun and can take you away from the seriousness of life.
