Hilariously Hatted Historic Statues

London's Statues Get Made Over by the HATWALK

— August 1, 2012 — Unique
These historical figures are entertainingly hatted for the showcase HATWALK. The 21 most famous statues around the city of London are given quirky designs from British millinery. Hats off should be given to the magazine publication Grazia and the Mayor of London, who worked in collaboration to create this event.

According to the Grazia website, "HATWALK brings together three quintessentially British elements -- our rich history, high fashion and a healthy dose of eccentricity." This celebration of all things British is not only charming but also well-executed.

Some of the statues featuring new headwear include the Angel of Peace, William Shakespeare, Winston Churchill and the Young Lovers to name a few. By following the map provided by Grazia Magazine, vistors can see the entire collection of hilariously hatted notables.
Trend Themes
1. Quirky Statue Makeovers - The HATWALK event showcases the trend of adding quirky designs to historical statues, creating an opportunity for artists and fashion designers to collaborate and bring a fresh twist to public art.
2. British-themed Fashion Events - HATWALK combines high fashion and eccentricity with British history, paving the way for more events and collaborations that celebrate the nation's culture and showcase local designers.
3. Interactive Statuary Experiences - The map provided by Grazia Magazine allows visitors to explore the entire collection of hilariously hatted statues, suggesting opportunities to create interactive and engaging experiences around public artwork.
Industry Implications
1. Art and Design - Artists and fashion designers can capitalize on the trend of quirky statue makeovers, collaborating to create unique and eye-catching designs for public art installations.
2. Fashion and Apparel - British-themed fashion events like HATWALK create opportunities for local fashion designers to showcase their talent and creativity, and for brands to align themselves with British heritage and cultural celebrations.
3. Tourism and Entertainment - Interactive statuary experiences, such as the HATWALK map-guided tour, can attract tourists and locals alike, providing an opportunity for tourism companies and event organizers to create engaging and memorable experiences centered around public art.
